Check out the new digs!

Well, for only the second time in the blog’s history, the design has been changed. And this time, instead of just me hacking at an old Blogger template, a real-live designer fixed it up for me. Bran wanted to do something nice for me for hosting her blog (and because she wuvs me). So, she came in, tore up the carpet, laughed derisively at my nonsensical html code, nailed up a few new posters, and voila! After three years, it finally looks like a real blog around here.

One thing that I did do myself was rip out the Trackback code. After a week of fighting off spammers attacking the TB ping, it just isn’t worth keeping. I’m following the words of wiser folks than me: This entry was posted in Yo! Listen Up!. Bookmark the permalink.

    Very pretty! 🙂 (In a masculine way, of course!)

    Just an FYI – your sidebar is way down at the bottom below your entries – at least on IE. Haven’t checked with Moz of netscape.

    err… that would be OR. I hate typos!

    Me liiiiiiike.
    Hey, I have that CD! You know that Lester guy too?

    it is not an IE problem. it is a personal monitor size/screen resolution problem. i can assure you this has been tested in various browsers, at different screen res’s, and meets code standards.

    i can’t make it perfect for everyone.

    Why??? I thought you could do EVERYTHING! 🙁

  6. Susan says:

    Wow – I love it! and the Trackback thing? I never thought of ripping out the code… so cool!

  7. geeky says:

    it is bee-U-tiful.

    I’m sure they’ll eventually find a fix for the trackback (and probably sooner rather than later if they know what’s good for them).

    In the mean time. I totally NUBS the new look. I had no idea you were hosting Bran, and it was about damn time you got a new look. I’m glad she came in and took the joint over for a little while.

    Everything looks just fine here in Firefox. Juuuust fine. :)It even seems like Sol’s writings are making more sense now. :p

    Good on Bran — it looks great! And no elf pr0n, either! Thank the Gods!

  12. domino says:

    Dude! I like the new look. It’s hot, it’s hip.


  13. Ric The Schmuck says:

    I, too, love the new look.

    Now, if the oh so talented and knowledgable Bran would tell us noobs how to change our settings such that we could view the page like the rest of the cool kids, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Or something like that. 🙂

    Nice and clean. I’m itching to clean my blog up a bit too.

  15. FryGuy says:

    I like the new design, keep on truckin’ yo’.

  16. To quote a wise old man, “Holy Crap!”

    Great new digs- really great. Well, at least we now fit in the neighborhood.

  17. Ric The Schmuck says:

    Hey, whatever changed, all the stuff is where it’s supposed to be!

    Which makes it look even better! Nice.

  18. Les says:

    Whoa! Dude, you’re, like, all handsome and stuff now. You’ll never take over the world with such a pleasant and soothing layout like this!

    Lookin’ good, Solly.

    Our trackbacks broke last year and it doesn’t bother me in the least. I’ve also stopped pinging anything and everything, since Bloglines catches the updates, anyways.

    Reminds me — I need to offload my links page to pure HTML, since my bloglines account is about to expire.

  20. Scott says:

    Er…blogrolling account, that is.

  21. zee says:

    sweet! you are looking grand!

  22. Kim says:

    Very snazzy crib, yo.

  23. jadedju says:

    X. Kwi. Sit.

    Beautiful work, Bran, and congratulations Solly.

  24. Becky says:

    I like the new look. I wasn’t sure I was at the right place at first. LOL.

  25. Chari says:

    I know I’m late… but it sure looks spiffy around here! Love it.

    It almost looks… well, professional!

  26. robyn says:

    I did a double-take to make sure I was at the right place… Very snazzified — me likey!

  27. deb says:

    Goodness I’ve been away from here too long! I do love this new look, Solonor, and the best part of all is that it LOADS so much FASTER!! YAY!
