Just finished tinkering with the look of the new blog; currently, I’ve settled on the standard “Minimalist White” with a custom header background. No doubt it’ll evolve as time goes on, but I’m happy with it for now. For what it’s worth, the Movable Type Design Assistant proved very useful in trying out ideas. I was less impressed with the way MT itself kept throwing away my changes to the stylesheet when I hit “save”, but that seemed to stop once I turned of syntax highlighting. C’est la vie.
I’ve also added an initial bio page here; it’s not complete yet, but at least it’s more up-to-date than my last one.
