Oops, pardon my dust...site under renovation

Last Tuesday, I ruined my old Blogger template. Yesterday, I had a fit of narcissism. Those two in combination resulted in a totally new template. The result is what you see on your screen right now.

I am so vain.

There's still a number of things that I need to fix up, so pardon me if not everything works. Sincere apologies if the site looks broken in Internet Explorer. As you might already know, I don't use Windows and so I only have Firefox and other Linux-based browsers to test the site with.

Then again, you really should upgrade to a better, standards-compliant browser. So there.

The graphics were largely done in Inkscape with some touchups in The Gimp. I'm happy to say that I'm getting better at both these tools. Many of the operations already come instinctively and I can now do all sorts of tricks. I'm especially proud of the icons I created.

I'll fix up the rest tonight, after I take a peek at how this all looks on IE. Shudder.

Update: Well, whaddya know? I just checked the site out on Internet Explorer and it doesn't look as bad as I thought it would. I had to do a couple of tweaks with CSS, but that was all.

Update: Comments boxes taken care of. Also fixed the little home icon near the bottom of the full post.

Next target: the links page. But that'll keep for tomorrow.
