The New Site

So, now that the Instalanche has abated, I invite regular readers to please comment on the new site.

Good, bad, ugly? Any cross-browser issues? Some people say the font isn't too easy to read? Some, I gather, want me to juggle the positioning of some links.

Lemme know please. Comments enabled.

P.S. Thanks to Glenn for posting the move. Now that it has been mentioned over at Grand Central Station--I feel like, you know, the move is real.

Looks terrific in IE (lastest version).

Looks poor (no margin, banner bar on left not right) in Mozilla 1.6 (latest) and Firefox 0.9 (latest) on Windows XP. Worse than poor, actually. Unacceptable.

Now the interesting thing is that Mozilla/Firefox is supposed to be 100% compliant with standards whereas IE is known not to be. Who knows.

Yes, keep up the great commentary. It's much appreciated.

As for the site - I think you should revisit your font choice. I'm using Firefox (Mozilla) and, although perfectly readable, it's a little rough. I think the font in the main column (blogbody) seems almost un-CSS'd styled to me - but that's probably because I'm on "times new roman" (3rd choice). Perhaps replace "georgia, garamond"? What about something like "arial,helvetica,...". I'm on Linux - some folks ,might not have all the Windows fonts.

Anyway - small improvements every day!

Cheers.

I enjoy your well-written commentary and the new formatting looks good overall, but have some minor suggestions. The grey clickthru text is a little too subtle for me . I prefer hyperlinks underlined. Also, it would be nice to be able to post comments occasionally.

Keep up the great work!

i agree the clickthru font is a little too subtle and i will look into the whole mozilla/firefox browser issue.

will look to fix early next week.

thanks for the feeback.
