first, and most obvious, is the site design. i’m a great fan of scott wallick‘s design philosophy and his wordpress themes that arise from it. i used a modified version of barthelme since i moved the site to wordpress from greymatter, but i thought it was time for a change.
enter plaintxtblog, another scott wallick theme, which is what you are seeing now. i like the three-column design, which allows you to see more sidebar items more quickly. and with minor modification here and there, the theme is working quite nicely for me.
i’ve even left the all-capital letters in the post headings, though i’ve taken care of capital letters everywhere else via the theme’s css. you know, the lack of capital letters is a queerspace tradition since my site went live in 1998, and i can’t change now. but i can make a small concession to modernity via the headings.
scott, paypal coming at ya, as soon as kirk explains how to do it. he has a paypal account. i don’t. i’m like a technological idiot savant in so many ways. i can tear apart website coding like nobody’s business. but the concept of paypal confounds me.
secondly, my host, invision power services, has had some uncharacteristic server problems that they promise will be ironed out today. if you’ve been having trouble accessing the site, the problem should be gone shortly.
finally, i’m all a-twitter now. you can see my latest doings in the sidebar to the left, under “what i’m doing”.
god help me for following trends.
