Ah, it’s definately spring when the near-annual Website Redesign occurs.

Yes. It’s very blue. In some senses, though, it’s less blue than the other version of the site. I’m still working through some of the bugs, and I hope to implement a style-switcher in the near future.

Wow. Awstats tells me that I’ve seen 10,000 unique visitors this month, and about 12,000 visits. I’d seen the numbers climbing before (in fact, was rather surprised to see it climb even after the site’s hiatus due to incompetence over Christmas), but to see it break 10,000 was actually kinda cool, considering that it’s a a geek-heavy anime / tech / spleen-venting hobby site, originally constructed because I happened to enjoy design work and HTML.

So. Hi. Welcome aboard. Visitors (especially regulars) should feel free to introduce themselves in the comments.

Yes, that’s a Sinistar reference. Yes, it’s been a long time between entries. Chalk it up as a learning experience, brought about by a half-assed backup strategy.

This blog was originally powered by a home-brewed collection of perl scripts and cgi modules, hacked late at night, fuelled by caffeine and held together by duct tape. Not surprisingly, it was quickly moved to Movable Type once the opportunity presented itself.

In a similar fashion, my old photo gallery was another home-grown solution that’s now been supplanted by the significantly more useful Gallery.

So, check out the new photo gallery! It should be less confusing than the old one.

Doing so should be validation that any homebrewed coding project that I come up with will inevitably be replaced by an infinitely superior one available for free from the great Inter-Web.

Small format changes, here and there. I suddenly realized that the old format was imposing posting constraints — ie, I had to make a decent-sized post, or the side-bar would impinge onto the lower content and basically Make Things Look All Weird. In the form-and-content world, a decent design can help mitigate the otherwise poor content of a given site (cough, cough).

Now, this means I can make quick little posts and damn the site design to all heck. I think. If the page looks weird, it means I screwed it up and will have to re-think some of the css.
