Same as the old theme.

After some months of idle planning, I finally commenced the process of sprucing up the journal earlier today. It’s not all there yet—I have a list of some ten significant things that are still broken—but when it’s done, it ought not to look too different from what you’ve known to come and love. I’ve just attempted to simplify and streamline the innards while making it look as consistent as I could across different browsers.

Fixes should be cropping up over the next few days as I go through things and run into problems, but you’re free to point out anything that’s particularly bothersome to you.

Happy reading loyal reader!

    Hey, how’s the sprucing up going? I’m ashamed to say that I’ve only just watch that little film you sent me the link to – The girl who swallowed bees – and I’m glad I watched it, I think it did warm me a bit and I’ll definitely watch it again. Thanks, really.

      It’s going rather well, I think. I need to go through much of the earlier content quickly and make sure nothing is awry.

      And I’m so glad you watched that short film. I’ve gone back to it a couple of times over the past months and it never fails to cheer me up!

    Yeah, in IE you could put a bit of space between your date and tags…they’re overlapping just slightly.

    Oh, and howdy stranger! Wait, what am I saying? I’ve been slacking on my blog as well.

      Thanks for pointing this out. I’ve increased the spacing a tad, and it looks better now in IE 7.

      The trouble is, it now looks not the way I want it to (nice and scrunched together) on other browsers, including IE 8. I suppose I’ll leave this gap in for now and pull it once more people migrate to IE 8. I don’t want to descend into any conditional CSS stuff so soon after I’ve worked out a new implementation of the design.

      And, I’ve been taking time off from interwebby things while I try to spend more time reading off-screen. I’ve been a good boy and spent many a day with books in real parks. :)
