I've made some changes to the blog layout. Overall they're minor, but hopefully give a cleaner look and address problems some people have had viewing it in Firefox.

Often I cannot see the problems people are having, so please let me know if something looks weird on your end.

It seems it has been a very long time since I first went to Wichita with Anthony and the folks at what was then Southwind gave me a thirty minute lesson on how to design webpages. We came back to Hutch and I was turned loose to make something. Amazingly enough, I got something online in just a few hours. Over the next few days I learned a lot of things about html.

That was back in the "dark ages" - 10 or 12 years ago maybe - before we had programs to do much of the work for us. Then you had to know or look up the code for any little trick you wanted to do. I learned the value of the word "tutorial" in searches. I used it liberally and still do when I'm learning some new thing.

Now I have dreamweaver and the world of options it offers. But, I often find it easier to experiment to get whatever effect I'm after. I always intend to teach myself more, but it's hard to find the time to do that when there are dozens of other things demanding attention.

I am thankful I know some basics. I would hate to be completely at the mercy of someone for every little bit of web design I wanted done. I have a couple of things I'd like to do with the blog that I have to figure out how to do. We'll see when I have time to get to that. I don't expect it to be anytime soon.

But, in the meantime, let me know if you experience any problems viewing it. Thanks.

The problem I briefly had, with the print on top of the wallpaper, has been completely solved. Thank you for going to so much effort to fix a problem that might not have been much of an issue with most folks.
