Blog Redesign

Doing a blog redesign was long overdue. I liked the Kubrick theme which was originally designed for Wordpress and which I ported it over to Movable Type, but I didn't the narrow main body content. This limited the size of images I could place within articles. So I decided to make my blog much wider, from 820 pixels to 998 pixels, which should perfectly fit a web browser at full screen (maximized) without having horizontal scroll-bars at the bottom. The layout was designed with the most common screen resolution - 1024x768 so if you use a higher resolution (i.e. 1152x864, 1280x720, 1280x768, 1280x960, 1280x1024, 1400x1050, 1600x900) you'll see grey borders on the left & right, but still no annoying horizontal scroll-bars.

If you are one of those rare PC users running at 800x600 resolution you will get horizontal scroll bars, but hey, you should be running at higher resolution! Actually, my father runs his at 800x600 because he has poor eyesight, so I guess if he reads my blog he'll just have to deal with the horizontal scroll-bars. It's still very readable at 800x600. Also, as part of the blog redesign, I had our Art Director, Alan Urkawich design a new blog header image with lots of gadgets, including the new Apple iPhone and a nice deep blue background, and a cool glowing TMCnet logo in the background. I'm pretty happy with the redesign and I hope you are too. Post a comment and let me know what you think.
