I officially declare this site back in action! I been ignoring it for too long. Over the past week, I have updated Typo and designed a new layout. This is not the completely final version, though. The header/logo and advertisements need some work. The previous layout performed very well in that department. Hopefully this layout will make up for the difference by attracting more repeat visitors.
As you can see, the new layout is significantly better on the eyes. Unfortunately, it has some issues with Internet Explorer 6. Hopefully I can figure out what is causing the extra space to appear. Here is a quick list of the updates:
Windows Vista Typefaces: Vista includes some “cute” fonts. If you have them installed, then the new layout uses Calibri. The best way to describe it is “semi-serif.” It actually replaces Times New Roman as the default font in Office 2007.
Fluid width and resolution independence. Go ahead, resize your text. The sidebar automatically resizes as well! Of course I also added fluid width. (Fixed width is useless.)
The colors are kinder on the eyes. I grew tired of deep red and flashy magenta.
Better readability around the ads. I might regret this one, but at least you can read through the copy without getting a headache now.
Watch for a new post detailing my upcoming endevors!
