Under Construction

Wikipedia animated gif of Jenga falling down You know how it is: A drip­py faucet leads to a tile com­ing off, which leads to a hole in the wall, which leads to…a new bath­room. Well, that’s what hap­pened to us years ago in Boston, and that’s all sup­posed to be a metaphor for what’s going on right now with this blog (or at least, the design of it).

I just want­ed to ‘fix’ a Flickr badge, and incor­po­rate some new func­tion­al­i­ty. That led to the whole design com­ing apart before my eyes. So, bear with me while I essen­tial­ly start from scratch. I’m exper­i­ment­ing with a new look. I’ve tried 2 new themes so far and I’m not hap­py with either of them. I real­ly hate mess­ing with this.

  1. Tin­ker­ing is the spice of life, my friend. 😉

    You need to come over for a Nerd­Camp-ing. Every­one gath­ered with their lap­tops, cod­ing away… it’s a thing of non-beau­ty. How­ev­er, you do get things done…

  2. Ah, but you can prob­a­bly see me flail­ing away, try­ing to get the text to move just a few pre­cious more pix­els before the whole thing blows up again!

    It has the feel of Jen­ga (that game where you pull put sticks one by one, hop­ing the whole thing won’t come top­pling down again at this turn).

  3. I just changed my lay­out theme too, and I’m keep­ing a to-do list of bits and pieces that need cor­rect­ing (or re-cre­at­ing). For­tu­nate­ly the old theme stays in place on the serv­er, so you can look at sidebar.php etc. to grab the PHP that shows recent com­ments, look at the old stylesheet and com­pare with the new, etc.
