Do not adjust your set. Either of you.
I've had the same template now for five years, with minor tweaks. I rather like the simple, the lack of bullshit. But even I finally get tired of looking at white and black lettering. I can leave real design to design-y people like Dzesika; but I don't have to look fricking homeless. So here goes, a little face lift for Ye Olde Journal. The whole globe business seemed apropos as I sit in my hotel room in Warsaw, overlooking the Soviet-era Ministry of Culture (oh yes, eating good chocolate).
The silver lining of having a blog nobody reads: there can never be a class-action lawsuit for exhibiting bad taste in site design.
