house cleaning

Hey guys, I'm planning on taking the blog in a slightly different direction in the new year, so I'll be playing around with some stuff. I'm updating the template as we speak. I may just end up going back to the same old thing, which has been pretty much inert since 2008 or so. Give me feedback, please! Also, I'm afraid I'm going to have to set up a comment filter/login system if this spam persists. (Or if that weird pro-Zionist/anti-Semite troll persists.) I hate to do it, because I know it's been buggy in the past, and I really believe in the right of people to maintain anonymity online, but every post now seems to have a commenter telling us about this one weird trick they learned to make money playing online Yahtzee.

Anyway, change is afoot, and hopefully in a positive direction. Expect me to be playing around/changing stuff for most of this weekend.

Update: I'm digging this current template, so let me know what you think. The license of the template requires that I maintain the attribution in the footer, which is perfectly fine by me. But does anyone with a little HTML knowledge know how I can get rid of that Twitter and RS button duo up at the top right? The HTML is available here. Any help would be appreciated.

Update II: Thanks very much to Roger Burgess for the help.

A request: Keep the blog simple in terms of design. No need to pick a template that has a lot of Office Space style flare. Just something straightforward.

My thoughts exactly. Thanks Daniel.

Too much white burns my eyeballs! But honestly I'll keep reading your blog in any color. :)

Line 560. Remove everything from
[div class='social'

to ...subs.png'/][/a][/div]

substituting [] for angle brackets.

As long as the blog contains your aggressive writing voice and your unquenchable penchant for upsetting folks on both sides of the political divide, I will be reading...

Nice!

I like the current font. I may not be using the right words, but the title has a kind of 1920sy Art Deco sort of look that's pleasing, at least to me.

Freddie said...

I think that "art deco" is exactly right for the font of the title.

Hmmm. I miss the lovely banner image.

Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
using for this website? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers
and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
