New Look

March 1, 2008

As of this month my blog is a year old (I’m such a proud daddy!).

In celebration of the anniversary, I’ve given the space a makeover. This new look is closer to what I wanted back when I started this site: dark with a nice customizable header.

The DOE has stats that light backgrounds use up to 20% more energy than dark or black ones. So, one could look at this new theme as reducing my carbon footprint and making the world a better place. Regardless, the old gray blog wasn’t what it used to be; and I needed a change.

The view of Ras Shamra is a manipulated image nicked from a University of Leiden’s article on Wilfred van Soldt. As far as I can tell, there are no copyrights attached to it; but I want to make sure to give proper credit (and recommend the short piece as well!).

    Although I prefer the look of the old theme for aesthetic reasons, I like the new one because it plays better with my RSS reader. The old one squished the text in the middle column down to about an inch on my screen, which meant I had to open it in a browser to actually read it. This new one looks great in the RSS reader.

    Thanks folks. It’s weird about the RSS reader issue. I didn’t notice a difference myself; but I use GoogleReader, which might be part of it.
