Well, since everyone else seems to be revamping their blogs (and also because I'm expecting visitors soon), I thought I'd try to keep up with the Joneses or at least not fall too far behind. At first I was just going to put in a header graphic (as seen above), but I found it wasn't easy to do with my old (and first) WordPress theme (which is no longer being updated) and so I decided to hunt around for an entirely new theme instead. I settled on Tarski, and I think the word for it is "spiffy"! I've tweaked it a bit to suit my tastes, mainly in the CSS, and although some things about Tarski take getting used to, it's growing on me more and more. And into the bargain, the upgrade has yielded two really big improvements over the old theme and associated plugins. One, a search function that actually works! Two, a recent comments function that actually works! 1 Oh, and the tagline now more accurately reflects the content matter :)
I've tested out the new look on a few different platforms and browsers and it's mostly ok (except for Internet Explorer on OS X, and even that's still usable), but any feedback on usability/readability would be welcome -- especially on the default font size and colour (it could be darker, perhaps).
