I’m playing around with a new theme for the site. I like this one a lot, although I’ll likely tweak it as I go. I’ll add a new header graphic for one. In the meantime, if you see anything missing here (like something you enjoyed from the old theme), let me know.
One cool thing about the new theme is that you can collapse any of the boxes in the sidebar by clicking on the little green bulb in the upper right. Also, you can rearrange the boxes in each column however you like. Just click on them and drag them around. They can’t move between columns, but this should give you, the reader, a fair amount of flexibility with how you like to use the site.
