Notice anything different? Yeah, a wider weblog div, slightly larger text, and no more serifed type. Mostly I tweaked things because Flickr doesn’t provide 400px photo width (and they don’t seem to be planning it as an option), and I was tired of having to post 240px photos because the standard 500px width was too wide for my existing format. So, I added about 70 pixels to my weblog div’s width (Good bye, legacy of accomodation for 640×480 resolution!), found I didn’t like the serifed body text anymore, and embiggened things till it looked like they fit. Do you find it more readable?

(When in doubt, Shift-Refresh.)

    The site looks great, but I’m a little bummed that the Atom feed now only gives the first 160 characters or so–it used to give the whole post.

    Oh well, I guess that’s inspiration to come to the real thing every now and again.

    Yeah, sorry, Kevin, but I wanted people to come over. One day when I have tons more bandwidth and a few quarts less ego, I’ll go back to full entry feeds.

    The new layout is more readable. Rock! I also noticed the atom truncation but it’s a good excuse to come look at your lovely site (^_^)

    the tweaking is good =).

    three cheers for full entries in the atom feed, you know we’ll always click through when we want to leave comments anyway ;-).

  5. Yes, the wider format, sans serif type, and wider spacing of characters all helps old eyes like mine.

    Everything yes but the new size of the font. When I first came here I thought it was too big by accident so I immediately clicked the ‘Make Text Smaller’ menu button. I find I can’t read as much on one screen as I want too.

    Really like the larger photos and wider column width. Never did have any use for a feed reader.
