New Theme – Forgotten Skills – Old Junk

New Theme
Since I am actually using this blog now (that’s my intention at least – I slacked off bad last month) and since it is no longer centered around a space-based video game, I decided to change the theme. I added a few widgets too. I might even go nuts and start using categories, since I seem to be all over the place with what I write about.

If the new look is so terrible that you wish to commit ritual suicide about it, please remember to write me into your will first. Thanks.

Sorry, but the old one *had* to go. It was terrible. I only picked it because the banner image was vaguely space-like.

I can’t really do much with the design, since this is hosted by WordPress and not by me. They provide dozens of approved themes and I pick one, add widgets and that’s all the control I really have. After an hour of looking around, this theme seemed to be the least horrible.

Also, see the ‘Share’ thing at the bottom with the little Twitter button? Yeah, I’m doing that by hand. Old fashioned copy & paste. If anybody has a clue how to do something like that automatically on a NOT self-hosted (which means I can’t use javascript or php) WordPress blog, please let me know.
