In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming...

Aside from a few minor database glitches during the export/import process, and the optimizing of images posted here - it is done.

One change that may help many - the logo image up top, on every page except for the main page, is now a link back to the main page. That should save some people the monotony of clicking back, back, back.....

I now return you to your regular hosts....

Very nice.

Corinthian leather?

Excellent! The big improvement that I noticed right away is that the page loads much faster. I used to have to wait and wait and wait for the header image to load before I could read anything. This is much much better.

Also, the post button is in the right place. Used to lose more comments because your Cancel button was where most people have their Post button. Thanks for the improvements. :-)

Oh, if you're making changes to posting buttons, do you think you could add a "preview" button at the bottom of the comments section on the permalink/individual archive pages? Its absence has always slightly annoyed...

Posted by: Felix on May 13, 2003 9:49 AM

Bah! I curse preview buttons. The absence of a preview button gives me an excuse for typos and misspellings.

I think there is some Blowhard withdrawal going on if you guys are arguing over preview buttons after only a couple days.....

hell yeah! if it goes on much longer, I'll be reduced to wondering why that little dotted-line thing only appears after the 1st, 3rd, 5th etc comment...

Can't wait for the first post-structuralist analysis of the gendered quality of the redesign.

Posted by: charlie b. on May 13, 2003 4:34 PM

What problem with the little dotted line thingie? It's after all of them? Isn't it.....seeing things is one of the symptoms of withdrawal...

It's not merely Corinthian leather, it's rich Corinthian leather. (Think of Ricardo Montalban when you say that.)
