The first and easiest thing on my list of goals is a new and streamlined look for this blog — something not so heavy and difficult to load, but at the same time attractive and clean.
I’ve had the same boxed blue look (K2-lite, if you liked it) since August 2006, when I started. A couple of times I changed it for a few hours, but didn’t like anything but the blue, and so I kept it. It’s grown a bit old these days, and it’s a new year, so I changed it. The new one is also a bit less vertical.
Some other changes were due. I trimmed off a lot of the extraneous links as well as the flash side box, mostly because it was causing slow load times for me. It didn’t do well to have a blog intended for older computers … that wasn’t courteous to older computers.
I’ve kept the two snapshots from a desktop and a game, mostly because those are very small pictures and easy to load. I’ve thought about using “more” tags to make the page load a little faster, but I’ve never liked those. I suppose it might be a good idea for some of the longer posts.
That’s about it. Goal No. 1, check.
