Absolutely Not Your Monkey

A little different

You might have noticed this site looks a little different. That’s because I went over to Prince Roy‘s fourth-floor castle last night and got Mark to have a look at my code, which hasn’t really been dusted off since 2001, just added to and tinkered with whenever I found a bit of HTML to cut and paste in there. As a result, Mark was saying a lot of things like “Nobody uses DARPA settings anymore” and “I think I saw this tag once in 1997” when looking at my template. As Prince Roy had an early morning the next day, we didn’t have enough time to do a complete overhaul or, as I’m increasingly inclined, to migrate the whole thing to WordPress, as everyone seems to be doing these days. But I know that if I do, a year or so down the road someone will come up with something else that everyone will migrate to from WordPress.

Mark did manage to find the reason I haven’t been to implement a site feed, and now that he’s fixed it, I have real site feeds for all my blogs up and working. Of course, now I am expecting a huge spike in my readership and possibly a pony and/or limo, even though I’m constantly assured that that will happen when and only when I move to WordPress. In view of today’s wider monitors, I adjusted the width of the text so that it doesn’t go all the way across the page. It still doesn’t look quite right; I’d like the sidebar on the right to be close to the edge of the screen, for example, but it should do for now, or at least until I play around with it some more and see what looks good.

  1. maybe we can get Mark back on the job saturday night. I’m sure we’re just a tweak away from 100,000 hits a day!

  2. Well, someone still has to figure out how I can get comments and backlinks set up on my Chinese blog.

  3. WordPress is definitely the way to go. It is light years ahead of blogger as an efficient content management system. My computer skills aren’t particularly great, but I managed to make the move without any hassles.
