All is well.
I decided it was time for some renovations around here.
I'll be fooling with the design and layout of Stonekettle Station for the next few days. You may see some formatting weirdness.
You're welcome to express your opinion of the changes in the comments section, and like always I'll probably just ignore your pitiful little complaints...
... unless, of course, there's money involved
Update 1: There are now quick link badges for Email, Blogger, Twitter, and Facebook on the bottom of each post - just in case you'd like to share my incredibly insightful and life-changing posts with your vast army of electronic friends and family via social networking media.
You can also rate each post.
And there may be more to come - I'm trying to add things gradually. You know how it is, make too many changes and the next thing you know Mel Gibson is on the line calling you a filthy whore.
Update 2: Yes, I know some of the pictures from older posts slop over into the link bar on the right. Suck it up, Buttercup, I'm not going back through three years of posts and reformat - not even if Mel Gibson calls up and threatens to have me violated by a gang of unicorns or something.
Update 3: Gak. In low-resolution on a smaller monitor, the new color scheme is a lot like spending an evening in the bar trying to get Mel Gibson's car keys away from him while he hits on your wife and vomits on your shoes. Since you cheap bastards can't be forced to upgrade your display systems to something approximating the shiny hi-tech Twenty Tens, I suppose I'll have to make some changes later this evening.
Update 4: The Recent Comments gadget over there on the widget bar apparently doesn't display properly (or at all) in IE. A technical solution to this display problem can be found here.
Update 5: I don’t like it. I keep fooling with this template, but I just don’t like it. You may expect further design changes later this weekend.
Update 6: Mel called. He didn't like it either - though he blamed the poor design on a certain religious minority and then called me a filthy lying whore.
I like the current snowy background design, black letters on white.
Final Update for Now:
I think you're looking at Stonekettle Station's new template for at least the next couple of weeks. I'll be out of town for a while, and I'm fairly satisfied with how things look and work at the moment. There may be some additional minor fiddling, depending how much access to bandwidth I have during the trip. We'll see.
