New Site Theme: minimalist!

I was getting plenty sick and tired of my old site theme. It was too busy and even I was having a hard time focussing on the text of actual posts. I don’t know how I strayed into such a busy layout. It must have been just me adding things one after another until it [...]

PSA: Update Your Feed Subscriptions

I’m not usually one to care about numbers and stats, but I glanced at my feed subscription numbers for the site and noticed that it dropped drastically since I changed hosting providers.

Oh Google, You Broke My Feeds

Thanks to Hershell for pointing this out, but I guess when Google bought Feedburner, they decided to update feed addresses, which meant my old RSS feed was out of date and no longer working. I think. If you’re reading this from a reader, then you probably don’t need to update the feed since you can [...]
