New theme

What d’you reckon? It’s not quite minimalist enough for my tastes just yet, but I like the way it does all the groovy Web 2.0 stuff, only two years late. I think the text box needs to be narrower and the borders wider… any other suggestions?

    Not too bad, but there's something not quite right with it that I can't put my finger on. Could just be that you need to add a few extra pixels of space between posts or something apparently trival like that. I think the text density may be a little bit high (for my personal taste) and the posts seem to run together.

    Some bastards in China (or perhaps some bastards elsewhere using a China-based zombie machine) hacked my site a couple of weeks back and I've only just managed to wrestle it back from them.

    Lesson learnt: apply new WordPress patches / upgrades the moment the become available.

    Sorry to hear about your swine-flu / lurgey. I must admit though, I've found it amusing flicking between BBC and RTE (our national braodcaster over here) and hearing both sets of politicians claim that "no other nation is as well prepared as us". They can't both be right.

    Yup, I think you were right. There are still some weird bits I don't quite get (and whoever designed the original theme is a bit of a comedian when it comes to making gratuitously complicated CSS, so it might take a while to sort), but I'm now fairly happy with it.

    (for example, I seem to have made the comment alignment go rather screwy…)

    Very clean :) I would be tempted to change the line between the site title and crumb trail to a solid line instead of having the fade underneath – otherwise, I like it!
