Well, I’m standing here at 11:45pm slowly stirring some tasty custard I’m making to pour onto a slice of steamed homemade date pudding. A while ago the wonderful Margaret Atwood was on the radio (talking about an influential editor who died recently – can’t recall the name), which is bliss for me since I love hearing her talk about anything. Absolutely anything. I just love her voice, tone, and turns of phrase. There’s a cold wind blowing outside…
Why am I doing all this? Well, it’s really cold outside for a start (yeah, I know) so I need some warm comfort food, but mostly I’m treating myself after a long night of writing php scripts and css code, remembering stuff I learned two years ago, with the aim of rebuilding the old look for the blog. I’m really tired of the clunky default style I’ve had installed for a while since last week’s problems, and so I’ve gone and put up what I’ve done so far even though it is not done. The basic look should be back, but fonts, styling on non-front pages, the footer, the look of embedded images, and so forth, will all be a bit odd for a while. I hope to get to the rest of it in a night or two.
I don’t know how things look in IE, especially versions IE6 and older. I’ll try to do what I can if it is really terrible (let me know) but I cannot promise perfection. Things should look ok in Firefox and Safari. There’s some annoyance with sidebar that I can’t get right, and so it may vanish if your browser screen is set too small. Sorry.
Do let me know by comments and/or email if you see things that are really quite badly broken…
Drat! Stopped stirring for a little while there while typing and now I’ve got lumps…!
