Bear with random brokenness.

Update: I was, as usual, trying to revert back to the old theme to fit it in with the rest of the site. But now, I’m not too sure. This looks pretty sweet.

    anita: It does look a lot more cheerful, and I really like it. It’s just, I need to try to make it more… meish. Which might unfortunately mean it’s going to end up looking a lot darker, and unhappier.

    pul|: And, though I just finished saying that, I do resent the “old one” being called “dull”.

    I prefer, meticulously… cold.

    Vigvg: He must be. It’s now, apparently, the WordPress default theme and I guess that means a lot of people will get to see/run it.

    Me, for instance.

    Adi: Packages like this web log tool are fairly cleanly packaged, with clear documentation as to what needs to be done to get it up and running.

    Meaning, you don’t really need to know the specifics or details, just the drive to experiment. And, at the end of the day, you don’t really get too much more (apart from some added control) out of such a custom solution than what services like blogger and livejournal already offer you.

    Random Rambler: Thanks!

    I can help you out with installing a tool like WordPress. It’s just, services like BlogSpot use their servers to host their own tools (that do similar things) to help people set up their own journals. They are not your regular web hosts who give you access to a webserver with PHP and a MySQL database (needed to use a program like WordPress). This website is set up on one such web host, where I’ve used tools like b2 and WordPress to maintain the journal.

    You could, for now, easily use what blogspot offers you and run your own web log. If all you want to do is make it “look different and cool”, you can easily find a lot of nice templates to help you get started.

    If you’d like to do more work in order to gain some finer control (or learn), I could point you to a more suitable host.

    really nice change.

    It’s settled then, I use this.

    Until I can dream up “enhancements”, of course.

    God I wish I were talented, like other people.
