Oh no! Something's different!

Yes, for the more observant of you, I have changed the template of the blog.  With this new template I'll be able to embed the podcast so you can access it anytime with just one click (that's coming soon).  Otherwise, the look has changed but the questionable content within remains the same.

So for the moment I'm hanging the OPEN DURING CONSTRUCTION sign.  

Thanks for your support.  I'm always looking to make the blog better so everyone gets their money's worth.

I may be getting older but it looks like the typeface is bigger...I like that...The temp plate is nice. I should look into changing mine up this year as it's been the same for the past seven years...

A white, rather than yellow, background may help legibility.

Black on yellow is easier to read than black on white.

Holy Cow! I thought for a second I was in the wrong place.

You should offer a double-your-money back guarantee!

I think the phrase you're looking for is James Thurber's from an era in which The New Yorker was apparently undergoing much construction: "Construction as usual during business."

@Matthew: I find the comment section far easier to read than the blog.

Like Wilshire & Fairfax as the Purple Line (and Academy Museum) is built...except Ken doesn't have a "99 Cent Only" store.

Both black on yellow and black on white are in the top four, anyway. The color to avoid for type is blue, which the human eye doesn't focus very well.

Personally, I find yellow on black or white on black easiest to read on screen (they're the other two of the top four) because your eye is drawn naturally to the brightest parts of the screen - which it's helpful if that's the type you're trying to read. I also find it less tiring to look at.

Welcome to 2005, grandpa.

I found this on IMDB:
Each season of the show can be distinguished by the color of "Frasier" in the opening title frame. In order: blue, pink, green, purple, yellow/white, brown, yellow/orange, bright/neon green, orange, silver, gold.

I found this nicer than your previous iteration.

Usually I hate redesigns, but this is one that looks better. Text looks a little big though.

Unless I completely missed it, you've eliminated the Share function. I have shared some choice entries on Facebook, but not so easy now. Any chance of that feature returning? Otherwise, I'm loving the new format.
