If you’re a regular visitor to, you’ve probably noticed that things are looking a bit different ’round here.

Specifically, we’ve redesigned the site. That’s right, our old trusty design was getting a bit long-in-the-tooth, so we took a stab at a redesign that addresses some of the shortcomings of the previous design, such as 1) responsive layout weirdness, 2) inextensibility (I don’t think that’s actually a word, but basically the old design wasn’t super-extensible, so every time we added a new feature, it was more effort than it should’ve been and 3) staleness (the old design was getting pretty stale, having served for almost seven years!).

In addition, we migrated this, the rarely-updated blog, to a simpler, text-focused design as the old one was a fork of the photoblog’s design that was never really designed for text-based blogging, but rather was photo-focused.

If you find any weirdness/brokeness/oddities (or have any suggestions), please let us know at
