New Format

Thursday, September 06, 2007
Okay, so The Dude is in the process of finding yet another site template for his illustrious blog. And that got me to thinking... it's been years since I started this humble site, perhaps it's time for a change?

(Actually, I'd thought about this many, many times, but since I self-host, Blogger's template options are limited.)

So, as wrap up my second year of operation, I've debuting what I shall call "Site Design 2.0", which hopefully retains my preference for a relatively clean and simple design, while giving the site a slightly more modern look. (I had to significantly modify the base template to get this.)

Please, PLEASE, feel free to give me feedback.

UPDATE: I refined the color scheme slightly, hopefully this will emphasize the text better.

UPDATE #2: Based on more feedback I made a few more alterations, including making the right sidebar a little more distinct. I do like the colors, though, as they're very reminiscent of my original scheme.

Eww. Looks more cluttered than before. The text doesn't appear to be the main focus anymore. I think it's the split between the text and the right table that bothers me. Not enough contrast change there.

Oh and I don't like change... just kidding. :)

I feel like your occupation and industry labels (in your profile) should be switched... you know?

In the business industry, you are a student; you're not a business in the student industry.

Nice... not as nice as mine (naturally)... but nice. :)

Seriously, looks good although your right side column is overlapping the center column a bit and you lose some of the post text as a result. I'm not sure if that's a result of my screen resolution or something else, but there it is. Could ya fix that for me? That'd be super... mmmkay?

the Grey is nice but the dark red on grey just isn't doing it for me. Try a jet Black or maybe white instead.
