A new look . . . maybe

September 9, 2011

It was pointed out to me, by two people, that a.) the blog could use some snapping up and b.) posting a promo for $LINUX_EXPO, complete with .jpg, is playing havoc with RSS feeds.

So I’m going to take the advice of both, especially Allison Chaiken’s advice on the RSS feed (thanks, Allison), and change things up a bit.

What do you think? Keep this theme or go back to the Kubrick/Contempt based blue theme?

    I like both. As to the ad playing havoc with RSS, how about placing the ad at the bottom of the page?

    I’ll follow you anywhere, unless you fill the space with tons of little pictographs.

    Now you need to clean up that Blogroll, it is way out of date.

    Peace, Bob

      Not to worry, Bob: No little pictographs. Cleaning up the blogroll now . . . .

    I agree with amenditman, I don’t mind the Linux Event “ads”, they remind me of what I’m missing, but perhaps placing it at the bottom of the content would be nicer?

    On the Blog, you could set up an HTML Widget on the right side and promote the Event(s) you want, statically.

    Oh and I know you’re on wordpress.com so I think you can’t use many WordPress Plugins, but there’s a plugin that lets you slap something at the end or beginning of RSS feeds in a way that won’t show up on the blog itself.

    I’m not a person who cares much about looks. (I realized tonight that my shirt was unbuttoned most of the way, which I’m sure that people thought all today was inappropriately flirtatious, but actually it’s because I forgot to button it.) However, I look forward to your thoughtful blog entries being more easily sharable and look forward to doing so.

    Still using KDE on F14, but looking forward to upcoming F16-KDE upgrade.
