Orange, anway.

Rain has an actual “look.” Before it was just all grey and blah, which was fine, if you’re into that sort of thing, but lets face it, this is a whole lot warmer.

It hasn’t been adequately tested on Windows browsers, but it has had a little bit. At the very least, it’s standards compliant and accessible, which is a fair bit better than the boring old grey one.

As I said before, this is the first site I ever “designed” without mocking it up before the fact in Photoshop. It was an adventure, but it was liberating too, since I didn’t have to fuss and muss and try to match in code what I had drawn with ease. At all times I knew the site would work, and I didn’t have to think about how to accomplish some clever little thing I had done with the airbrush and layer blending.

Enjoy, comment, critique. I enjoy the abuse, but only if there’s silver lining.
