New Digs!

Okay, everything should work. And it should be all pretty. I even bothered to make the essays consistent with the rest of the site.

The redesign is the result of a couple of things. I had to buy a new monitor, so I couldn’t afford to upgrade Paul and get MT going for him. Hungry for something to do, I started hammering away here. Also, I was tired of the hard-to-read goth thing. Also…well, that’s for the next paragraph:

I’d like to thank:

  • Dave because I started with one of his stylesheets, and learning from it made this site much better.
  • Judith who recommended some excellent color changes.
  • Rod who is now my Typography God.
  • Salt who nudged me to make some layout changes.

I think this is my best design so far. I’m very, very happy with it, and I wasn’t before you all pitched in.

Addendum: something is wonky with recent archives. I’ll work on it tomorrow.

    Oops, life holds many surprises!
    In my humble opinion (ie that of probably the only novice computer user around here – who will most likely ALWAYS remain pretty ignorant in matters of electronic data processing…) this is a VERY attractive new layout – clear and nicely decorated! I’m impressed!!
