A fresh coat of paint
It was way overdue, but the blog has gotten a few facelifts and important changes to be aware of.
First off, yes, that’s a brand new theme. The old one was not only quite stale, but it was starting to barf up all kinds of visual glitches on modern browsers. This new one looks much nicer on widescreen monitors, and the text now wraps around images the way it was intended. If anything looks funky, please let me know.
Second, email notifications have changed slightly. Instead of using FeedBurner, all subscriptions will now go through the Subscribe2 plugin. Don’t worry; you don’t need to do a thing. I already migrated all existing email subscriptions.
Third (and related to the above), if you’re using RSS, you should change your feed to point to the site feed instead of FeedBurner. No, I’m not shutting off FeedBurner, but once Google gets around to doing it, don’t you want to keep on getting those updates? Of course you do.
