Piece of cake

I can’t believe how easy it was to switch to a new template. I think it’s a huge improvement, and I haven’t even added a photo to the header, which I plan to do soon. I’m going to hold off on the HaloScan comments — let’s just see how it goes for a while.

What do you think of the NewsTrust widget on the left? I think it’s a neat idea, but I’m curious to see whether it slows down loading to an unacceptable degree.

    DK – loads fine and looks clean, but one gripe.Maybe I’m just old, maybe I need new trifocals – but the print is TINY compared to your old blog. Can you enlarge it, or choose an easier to read font?

    PP: I’m still experimenting. Though I like it, I may try another template. Fixing the type size is easy, and I realize I may need to.Unfortunately, the NewsTrust thing is what it is. Its readability or lack thereof will definitely be a factor in my deciding whether to keep it.Although I could switch to a feed instead of a widget. Hmmm … let me try it right now.

    @PP:The font size displayed on your screen can be easily controlled by yourself from your browser (or RSS feed reader).In firefox, for example, use “CNTRL+” [control key and plus sign] to make the font larger; “CNTRL-” [control key and minus sign] to make it smaller.These days, many people read webpages/feeds on mobile devices, laptops of various screen resolutions, etc., that a change DK made for you might negatively impact someone else. It’s better to modify your browser font size to your liking than have DK make site-wide changes.

    Thanks, Mike, for the CTRL plus and minus FF tip. I’m still learning the neat things FireFox offers, exclusive of addons.
