Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

05/02/2004: Got the Blogger pages archived....

which is pretty much the major thing I had left to do. So far, everything looks good (I think), though I may make the font size in the posts a bit larger, the better to accomodate my middle aged eyes. We'll see how this layout pans out before we make any major template changes. Of course, the "problem" with opting for a less popular blogging system is that there aren't a lot of pre-made template designs out there to steal (unlike, say, the seemingly infinite number of templates available for Blogger and Movable Type).

Ok, I'll try to keep the self absorbed blog maintenance posts to a minimum now, and try to concentrate on substantive content. Such as it is.

The Idle thought text is overwrighting the top of your side bar box. Aide form that, I like it.

Thanks very much.

As to the "Idle thought" fighting with the sidebar border, yours isn't the first time I've heard that (see Mike Hollihan's comment on "Mission Accomplished?" below). It's not doing it on my browsers (so far, IE 6 and Firefox on Win2K), which is why I've not caught it. I'll probably just ditch that one now; several months of InstaPundit bashing is probably as much wallowing in that as one shuld do for a while.

I should have mentioned I'm also using Firefox .7, on Windoze 98SE. Looking good, Len.

Why did you choose GreyMatter over the other options?
