1x1100, New Look

Well, its been a long voyage, but this fair blog has reached 1,100 posts.
Thats a lot of me pecking a keyboard, and a lot of ya'll reading these said pecks. I really appreciate your comments, they make it worth the time to run a blog of this sort.

In the words of Joel of Seventh Sola,
"Yikes, what happened to your blog template?"


Well, after 4 years of the same color scheme, and one that was starting to hurt my eyes, I decided it was time for a change.
Since Apple and Google seem to have great luck with White backgrounds, I'm trying that out. Orange is a pretty accent color, so thats the other one.
Any thoughts and critiques or complaints on it would be most welcome!

Congrats! 1100 posts is quite a milestone. And the new look is a good idea, too.

Sorry about the botched hyperlink in my previous attempt. I'll try it again.

If you like the "film noir" look of my blog, I recommend giving my friend Jules a try. She and her husband only charged $40 to design my blog template for me. Tell them what you're looking for and they're pretty good at capturing your personality in the design.

Hence my design. Dark, grey, suspenseful and very, very dour.

i like the new look. it has a maturity about it, and it doesnt freeze up my browser.

but you need a new avatar. this one is a little dated, ya know?

good luck with the next 1100.
i'll be watching...

Change is good, the spice of life. It looks good. Keep up the fight against ignorance.
