They'd call it "reboot" Saturday December 23, 2006, 16 comments

I call it a redesign.

Of course, I don’t call it a blog, either. I know its not perfect in Internet Explorer, but it should look fine in Firefox, Camino and Safari. If you’re using Explorer, I recommend you switch to a more standards compliant browser, but that’s your business, not mine. Not where this site is concerned, anyway.

For my official 300th post on Rain, I decided it was time for a change. I think it’s a relatively minor redesign. Not a lot is different, despite appearances. Most everything is in the same place it was before.

I just needed to add a bit more weight, a bit more heft to the site. The creamcicle was awesome, but it was time for me to add some maturity to the design.

Much of it is in the details, and more of it is coming.

I’m happy. What do you think?

Not bad man. I like it. Wish I could get mine to look this good. Also the 9rules image on the bottom doesn’t seem to be loading.

Adrian Saturday December 23, 2006


Thanks Jeff, I’ve fixed that now.

Hacking Textpattern on a Saturday night. What a social life I have.

Ah well, at least the Leafs aren’t losing. Yet.

:)

Adrian Saturday December 23, 2006


See? I spoke too soon. Leafs are losing to Washington 2-0 in the second now.

Being a Leafs fan is an excercise in heartache.

Jeff Saturday December 23, 2006


Bruins are tied with Montreal right now going into the 3rd.

Adrian Saturday December 23, 2006


3-0 for Washington in the second intermission.

Why can’t I like a good hockey team?

Jeff Saturday December 23, 2006


I feel the same way. I was just looking at the standings. The damn Sabres have 52 points.

Looks great man! I like how you’ve integrated the little frog logo (below each article) in this design.

In your sidebar, is this new?

Adrian Saturday December 23, 2006

And put there just for you.

Not only is it rarely about football, it's rarely about good spelling ;)
