This is actually an old version of For the latest and greatest, check out the new site.

I'm Back

After almost 3 months of apparently disappearing, you can finally see why.

The redesign of this site started almost exactly at the same time that the previous version launched. I've ditched Textpattern; although it's a great little app, the lack of documentation and my inexperience with its tags and with PHP made it too difficult for me to manage.

I've jumped on the bandwagon and joined the Movable Type parade. Big props to Stan for letting me bug him when I didn't understand what was going on. Also invaluable to this process was the online Movable Type guide (shout-out to Malcolm for the link).

As long as I don't find anything about Movable Type that holds me up, you can expect to see this site around for a while, complete with lots of Dan Mall goodies.

To be honest, I've never been to your site before now, but I'd say this is a good time to start.

I like the design; you have everything organised well in my opinion.

The only thing I can suggest is very minor: it seems that almost everybody who designs for a white background forgets to specify that fact in their CSS. Most people wouldn't notice, but I've changed the background colour in firefox.

Make that simple little change and I'll love you forever (internet love, that is).

I like the design of this site. It just puts some strain on my neck because im on a 20" apple monitor and I have to lean my head to the left. Otherwise, good work.

Thanks for all the support! I spent a lot of time on redesign, and it's great to be appreciated. (Cue sappy music.)

@Stilist: thanks for the heads-up. Should be fixed now, so bring on the lovin'!

Awesome design. Real Black and white. Left-postion is a bit taxing, but gives a unique leverage on visual reach. I love it.
Keep it up. I am from India, a newbie in web design.
