t(h)INKeRING....

Well, as you probably already guessed, I'm in the process of tinkering around with my blog... thinking out loud as it were. Changes will be coming fast and furious for a while as I zone it in (yes, I finally broke down and decided to switch over to the new blogger templates... which aren't all that new anymore!) The reason I waited so long to do this... it means adding back in all the links in my sidebar one by one. A massive chore, that I was dreading. But I'll do it little by little, mercilessly pruning out old ones that don't belong anymore, until it's back up to snuff.

I re-read loads of articles (the whole thing) at the end of last year. Ant though some links were pretty dead, much information popped up in the "how was it possible that I forget THAT article" and stuff.
Oh, and finally I had the time and nerve to dig myself a way through you "theories" articles.

And now to what I wanted to say: Looking good. The balance between 'looking good' and optic overflow is sometimes hard to manage. But so far it looks good. All the best for the upcoming re-construction of your blog !

Thanks dudes and dudette.

I think it's pretty much there now, except that I need to make a new banner. One that actually FITS!

Myke - (if I may call you that) Wow, you read the ENTIRE blog??!! INCLUDING all my deep theoretical stuff??!!!!! Wow, that's amazing!! Must have taken a lot of time.

Sven... yeah, over 5 years now since I switched from my hand-coded blog at Darkstrider.net to Blogger... and most of that time spent on this ONE project.

Lookin' gooooood!! I've resisted switching JennyG over because I worried about losing template changes etc. Are your links the only thing you needed to adjust? At this point I should probably just refresh the whole blog anyways....and yeah, ditto Sven's comment, can't believe we've been at this for 5+ years already...looking forward to the next 5 :)

Well, the only real reason I lost info is because I had done a lot of t(h)INKeRING with the original template, so my whole sidebar pretty much disappeared when I switched over. But if you didn't mess with it too much you shouldn't even need to worry about it. I just made sure to save all those links in a text file before starting, in case I lost them in the switch (which I did).

Basically when you switch, you just have to re-select your color scheme and layout etc. Pretty straightforward.

re-reading all (and especially the depp thought) writings took some time - and not a minute wasted. Reading this older articles for breakfast and letting them progress and grow while doing quite brain-numbing work helped me to get through the day and delve into me own stuff. I can't tell you how much this all meant/means/will mean to me.
