New Look, Same Crappy Feel

07.02.09 | Comment?

I got tired of the butt-ugly WordPress theme I was using, so I dug up a snappy new one – what do you think? I’m now like 50% sexier.

Of course, there were… issues. To get the Search function to work, I had to upgrade WordPress, and that turned out to be a MAJOR headache, resulting in the site going down for a couple of hours. But now there’s an automatic “upgrade” feature, which if it works as well as the automatic plugin installer, well, then it works like crap.

Incidentally, I took the header picture (“Barber’s Books”) this afternoon. That building is on the corner of 8th Street and Throckmorton in Fort Worth – across the street from my office. There really is a bookstore there, but it’s down from the corner, and it’s basically a foyer, a staircase, and an attic – but it is, after all, a bookstore, so I go there about once a month.

The picture came out juuuust the way I wanted, and the clouds sure cooperated, didn’t they?

Here’s a different view:
