the new canadiancomment!
I was gonna wait for Bob to give final input on the layout but since he doesn't bother to read my email anymore I'm putting it up anyways. Take that Bob!
Anyways, the basic changes include:
1) The layout has less whitespace which should make it easier to read things. Each post is enclosed in a grey box which should add some definition.
2) Each post generates it's own individual page. Very nice.
3) Comments will now be entered via Blogger instead of Haloscan. Blogger made a lot of changes to their commenting system which now makes it tolerable. The comments are included with the individual page as well which is nice.
4) The main post column and the sidebar doesn't mess up the page anymore.
Things that haven't been changed:
1) I considered changing the font since most sites use a font like Verdana or Georgia but I personally like the one we are using now.
2) The trackbacks are still handled by Haloscan basically because Blogger doesn't support trackbacks yet.
The major problem I introduced by the changes is that by moving the commenting system to Blogger I've caused all the old comments to be lost. I'm sorry for the inconvience but hey, that's the way it goes. If I get the time I'll make an effort to move the most recent comments to Blogger. Since you were nice enough to put up your thoughts the least I can do is try to keep the discussion going.
So let me know what you think. And be harsh if you must.
