Another site redesign, because I clearly don't have any other work to do... Kind of funny background behind this design. I had been reading Gruber's posts on typography and design so often that it made me realize how hideous my site was. I brainstormed for a while, and then sat down and sketched out a few designs, finally settling on one that took queues from my favorite sites but was uniquely mine as well.
So what happened? This looks incredibly generic, no? It is. As I was coding it up, the design evolved into something a bit more simple and fluid. It still definitely needs a fair amount of tweaking - sections aren't divided as nicely as I would like, for instance, and it probably looks like hell in browsers other than Safari.
So my apologies, Señor Gruber, as this may seem like a blatant rip-off. However, I do not consider myself a hack with this design for the following reasons:
I just have to remember not to use footnotes. I use them normally, but it might seem like a direct copy if I were to start doing it here too...
Just need to finish migrating over the old posts, comments, other content, allow viewing of older posts than the last N, and allow commenting... and I will be done!
-- perhaps too much gray?
