Just finished installing the new theme I designed for my blog! I think it turned out pretty neat. I like it more than any previous one I have done to date!
In other news, I am currently a cashier at the Petro Iron Skillet. Mah dogs are killin me! But hey, a job is a job they say. And I got one. Now to search for one in my field!
That old theme color scheme was not doing it for me. Thus, “Major Delay” is now 0.5. Less blue, more grey. What do you think? I secretly always hated the old blue color-scheme.
Just spent some time fixing errors causing my site to not be Valid XHTML. I found lots of tiny things all over, and was able to go from 145+ errors down to about 5. Those last 5 I just can’t quite get. This is not to say that is true for my whole site. I did the work with the front page of the blog.
Why did the dudes in charge of XHTML not include a simple alternative to the center tag?
Here is my first stab at making a theme for my blog that is not a modification of another one. I have made 2 themes previous, one for the Warrior World site and then one recently for Vicomm.org. So I thought it was about time I should make one fore my own site. I have been wanting one for quite some time. Though never sat down to do it.
Now I have, and I think it turned out ok. Nothing too amazing, but it has the footer style I have been wanting for a while, along with other simplifications.
Please let me know what you think, or if you find any bugs. Is the textured background a bit much for the content area? I am thinking about removing it.
I figured out why my site was loading so slowly. I got rid of a plugin I was using for tags, and now it loads so much faster. I also updated the theme, no more overly tiny text.
Well, I missed posting on the real date, mainly because in my head all this time I kept thinking may was the anniversary. Then when May came, I forgot to remember. Now that I have remembered, and looked it up, it appears owlboy.com/blog was started on April 2, 2005. Happy Birthday blog. I never considered it would last this long, and I hope to keep it going even longer.
Remember! I like comments, post any you got on any entry! 🙂
Upgrading to WordPress 2.0.
If this look wonky for awhile, that is why.
I plan to re-theme too.
A new photoblog has opened next door…
It will mostly be world of warcraft screenshots, but other images too. Add it to your RSS reader.
