All of the older sample pictures on the site are now the currently-used size of max 800px wide or 700px high (some were significantly smaller). About 3,000 images were updated.
Looking at some of the work you did 7 or 8 years ago sometimes makes you cringe. It also shows you how far you have (hopefully) come.

Another major camera gear heist has been reported:
"We’re disappointed to report that on Friday 17th February 2012 CVP became the victim of one of the industry’s largest thefts when a substantial quantity of cameras, camcorders, lenses and ancillaries with a street value of around £1M was stolen from our warehouse."
Get the full public details on CVP's blog post.
Again, this gear is likely going to be resold. You can check CVP's Stolen Equipment Register to insure you are not buying their stolen equipment.
