I was actually quite surprised with the launch of the new Number10.gov.uk site yesterday morning. The new site actually has quite a few “tricks up its sleeve” including the fact that its auto-balanced based on the user’s IP location. If you visit number10.gov.uk within the UK you’ll be served the page by a London based server, Visit the site in the states and you’ll be provided the page from a server in California.

I was also surprised to find that the theme used on the site is a freely available open source WordPress theme! Called “NetWorker” by Anthony Baggett.

Its actually quite nice to see the Number10 site refreshed, Too bad they didn’t do it while I still lived there!
