In addition to being a somewhat productive day at the office… ok, not really. It was Duffy’s last day and we took a bit of a long lunch, and then there was the administrivia of getting his stuff signed out and I had to apply for the new type of badge that one must use to get in and out of the building. Suffice it to say not a lot got done work-wise today. But I did have time to make a few changes on the blog design!
My CSS skills are rusty, but improving, and I’m hindered at the office with the lack of a proper FTP client — I use SmartFTP at home — so any changes are slowly made, and the office internet tubes must be kinda clogged since my site uploads fairly slowly from there. Still I was able to add a new search bar, and make changes to the comments sections of my individual posts. When I got home, I added a link for my flickr photostream and I may add a bunch of new smilies tonight, I’m not sure yet. I could use some time on the couch, perhaps catching up on Mad Men before tomorrow’s episode puts me 4 in the hole.
I guess I’m working so much on this design, because I’d like it to be the last one, structure-wise. Unless something absolutely bloody amazing comes out in WP themes, this one is nicely configurable, the content is prominent, and it’s widgetized, so a lot of the sidebar information is easily added or moved around and the theme designer made all of the CSS very plain and easy to follow so when I make changes, it won’t be hard to know what to change and where. :nerd:
So what’d I miss today? I haven’t been near my RSS feeds or any news sources at all.
