Nothing is ever as easy as it sounds...

The changes you see are all a part of a month long work-in-progress. As an old-skool admin, I've been jealously eyeing the console terminal look; at the same time I loved the light/dark split background image effect I created for my most recent look. All I desired was a sidebar. Countless hours of compiling new CSS and I couldn't get the sidebar on that layout, nor could I integrate a secondary image in the context box area of another layout. So, I followed my gut (always lead with the gut) instinct and merged the best I could of what I wanted. I now have my sidebar, an updated background image (which took longer than I would have liked - retaining the look and feel of the old one) and my wyse-terminal appearance. I also prefer reading and posting comments in the exact theme, but again, apparently, you can't have it all. So far, the response has been overwhelmingly negative. Except from old-skool admins like myself. Which is cool with me.

Yesterday I rec'd a call from my V.P. Last time he called me concerning a board member, I had to send of of my guys to an island off the coast of California to tell the gentleman he could not run a current version of IE on his Macintosh (don't ask). Yesterday, I personally had to go to a convent to diplomatically help some Sisters print a pdf. I brought my Windoze guy with me; He hobbed-knobbed with the board member, and I hung out with a rather cool Networking Nun while we talked Firefox. She rocked.

I hate finding button-down Polo shirts on sale at Dillard's for 75% off then discovering all they have left are sizes 'Small' and 'Extra-Small.' Asses.

My wife will have me in a genital-cuff if I don't get my expense report submitted soon.

Then Firefox crashed taking my beautifully cultivated tab-farm with it! Grrrrrr. That's twice now since the new core update for those who are keeping count. Of course, I was hammering this laptop so much yesterday, it had to expand it's 1024MB virtual memory! Stupid laptops. I wish I worked from home on my computer with my DSL connection.

Peace out, bro. I've got beer to drink.

I like the layout, though the green-on-black is a little hard on the eyes. I liked your other layout better, but hey, I run white text on a bright-blue background, so I sure the hell ain't one to complain about poor color choices!

Yeah, I hate it when I'm at Goodwill, and I have to buy the old t-shirts with the holes in the armpits. I'm always like, "Damnit, can't you people sell some decent clothes." Anyway, I don't mind because people think I'm poor and they tip me more.

Will your wife put me in a genital-cuff too? PLEASE!

Then Firefox crashed...

Ironic indeed!

The green is a bit harsh on the eyes. I'm wondering if the bacground were less intense if the effect would still be the same. WTF about my Xanga? Asses.

You should use Opera. Speaking of which, you might want to go check out Data 10's site.


I am not a bottom. I do not enjoy being bound.

I don't buy clothes.

More thoughts to follow...

Here you go:
Does somebody need a timeout - Tom?
(Figured I'd be more direct with my question this time).

Is that better? So sorry to have offended your delicate sensibilities!!!

Perhaps next time you should try using video iChat?

you're a day late and a dollar short.

No, I don't need a time out.

You should have posted this where the question orginally occurred.

Bravo, threaded comments. Now we've got the topic going in two differnet places. Hmmm. This is really starting to feel like Xanga now.

Don't be rude and say your sorry. Now.

Boo Hoo! I'm so upset and in tears!

I'm usually a day late and a dollar short but hey, thanks for reminding me!
