The last time I tinkered ever so slightly with the layout of PooterGeek the email and comment complaints were such that I gave up and returned to the current look. This is something like the fourth design of PG since it started five years ago, but when I changed it previously there were no readers to object. Now this place doesn’t get the biggest blog traffic in the country, but it does seem to attract obsessives.
WordPress 2.2 is out and I want to install it here and then experiment with a different look as well, but I don’t want to open my flat door tomorrow morning to be greeted by global villagers brandishing pitchforks and torches and screaming “Burn the Geek!” so I am going to set up a parallel PG on another server some time this week and point you at it for your comments.
One thing that I know from having seen other people read PooterGeek is that only a minority of you enjoy the banner in its full, unpixellated glory. Most Windows machines don’t smooth the fonts in the title and subtitle correctly so you see rastered characters, whereas properly set-up Macs and Linux boxes generally get it right. At the very least, therefore, I’m going to fix that for everyone.
Well, a parallel site might get you out of having to face _this_ worldly consequences. You’d get fundamentalists off your back, anyway. But if you take a _sophisticated_ approach to theology don’t you have to ask yourself whether even a parallel site gets you around the problem of–how shall I put it delicately–
Bet you didn’t think of _that._ 🙂
Well, I just wish you’d let the RSS feed serve full posts instead of just headlines and summaries. Then we wouldn’t have to come here at all …
I’ve actually had people approach me at parties to complain about that. (The World has become a strange place. My mind still blows when I see URLs on the side of plumbers’ vans.) There are reasons for my keeping things the way they are…
I can only quote Garth from the Wayne’s World film…
