New Design and What I’m Writing

The new site is up and almost finished. Still a few bugs, a lot of tweaking to do and a few old pages still hanging around. I've also has a few posts published at other blogs around the web, so I've put together a little list of those.

So I went ahead and put up the design changes. There is still a lot of work to do. Some css tweaks, some broken links, some pages still using the old design but I’ll roll all that stuff out slowly. Whenever I made sites for myself I aways end up giving myself some wacky restraints. It is pretty stupid, I should just make the best design possible. For this site I decided I could only use Arial and Times for the fonts and two colors. I ended up not doing just two colors. The first version was read and white but it reminded me too much of the Blood Bank, so I instead went with the blue, grey and white colors the site originally had.
