05/01/2004: Self absorbed blog maintenance post, Part IImusic: Duke Ellington: Harlem Air Shift
In an ideal world, I'd have gotten Greymatter configured and everything yesterday, in time to roll out the new blog page today. The world ain't ideal, and I didn't get it done.
Greymatter appears to be working ok, but I need to learn a bit on how to configure the templates to get the damn page to render the way I want. In an ideal world, I'd be able to migrate this template over with a minimum of fuss 'n' bother. Once again, the world ain't ideal. I think that I'll be able to work to that goal, but it'll take a while. Right now, I have pretty minimal requirements. Mostly, I want my blogroll to the side, dammit, not scrolling down after all the blog entries. Oh well, I know there's a way to do it, and it'll get done. Unfortunately, Real Life™ is also making its demands. Once I get the design figured out, I'll roll it out soon. Just remember what's worth having is worth waiting for. :-)
Actually, if you're reading this now you've probably cottoned on to the fact that I have gotten Greymatter configured and working, and all in all, things seem to be going ok. The Blogger pages are archived away right now, and I need to 'gin up a nice little index page to them; then I'll add a link to that off the sidebar. Meanwhile, feel free to weigh in on the new format. Though as those of you who objected to the white text on black background version probably noted, weighing in doesn't mean that I'll actually listen. Or more accurately I'll listen, but that doesn't mean that make changes based on what you say. But I'm always open to suggestions, and if they appeal to me....
