New Blog theme... with less clutter...

Hi everybody!  No picture today... just pointing out that I trimmed a little of the "fat" on my blog...  I dumped the whole 1990's themed bazillion pictures and ads along the sidebar thing I had before.  I also chose a different color theme (that I'm sure nobody will notice the different)... plus the main page logo moved about 12 pixels to the left... the page is 24 pixels narrower the sidebar is 20 pixels narrower...  and... umm... oh yea, I added these cool social network sharing buttons to all the posts... actually those were always there, but one of the HTML changes I made screwed it up... it also screwed up the mobile site... so.  I fixed it.

Funny how I do stuff like this when I don't have any work...

Actually, every day I get reminded of one of my favorite Primus/Les Claypool quotes: "...No dreads about the working day effort though... funny thing about weekends when you're unemployed... they don't mean so much, 'cept you get to hang out with your workin' friends."

In the grand scheme of things, I really just wanted to add a Google +1 button to my posts.  I have been going around and clicking on +1 every time I like a search result... or a blog post... little +1 buttons are popping up everywhere, and I for one love it.  You see, one problem I always had with the Facebook Share buttons is that I'm not always logged into Facebook.  I'm always logged into my Google account.  That's just the way I roll.

So, anyway...  I guess that's enough rambling for tonight.  I'll write a real post soon.

Later,
