Yes, it was time to change the look of the blog. I was getting tired of the bloghaus skin.
Since I am no web designer, and have better things to do than creating skins, I looked for free ready-made nucleus skins. There aren’t many. There are even fewer good ones. This one is one of the best (which means you’ve probably seen it in lots of other places, too). I want to customize it more, I just added the ‘Recent Entries’ list on the left, but I’m not happy with the grey colors, so they’ll have to go next.
I also need to find a way to tell the Smart Breaks plugin not to mess up my source code. This blog will always contain code that’s meant to be formatted, and I’ve got to have a way to make it not mess with <pre>. Another day.
