First autumn rain…

October 7th, 2009 No comments

Of course I was just about to leave the office.. when I was greeted by this:

Wet feet!

Wet feet!

Considering what I heard about how little it had rained this year and how low the water-levels of rivers (especially the Rhine) currently are I guess it’s a good thing.

I wasn’t too motivated to step out that door though! Especially looking at the Aquadrome-like environment..

But as with many good things…
Why can’t they wait until I’m home?!

Note to self:
“Two umbrellas” is a nice idea… Bad idea to have both of them in the car :D

iNove theme is great! FF’s color correction sucks!

October 6th, 2009 1 comment

I liked Grey Matter a lot but Cardiano was right – just a bit too boring.

Fusion had some nice features too but the lack of configuration (especially the default font size and page width for new visitors) was a turnoff and fiddling with JavaScript is not my idea of having fun.

PrimePress and R755 both where nice and clean but just a bit too bright. I like bright but not that bright.

One theme I saw was out of all leagues (and I mean that in a good way too): Code is poetry!

In the end I decided for iNove by NeoEase. Links to dark red.. Tags a bit better displayed.. The huge RSS icon removed.. Looks a lot better now, I think. I like it too! And again kudos to Fleur for enduring my flood of request asking for her opinion about all those tiny details! :)

Oh.. And all PNGs and JPGs converted to GIFs.. you ask why? I’m using FireFox 3.5.1 at work and its color correction sucks greatly! The bottom and footer images were actually corrected to brown and didn’t fit at all anymore! :-O

Apart from that – WordPress’ administration interface is really great. And I mean it! – Says the one who usually prefers a plain text file and good old trustworthy Vim!

The wonderful world of a million themes…

October 4th, 2009 No comments

Omg, I’ve been searching for a few hours now and haven’t found a theme yet to which I was able to agree to at first sight. Don’t get me wrong, there are quite a lot nice ones out there – some with amazing features and additional theme options to choose from – but I just seem to be too picky?

Nevertheless, I need to decide for one of those I installed and then will start hacking. Fleur is helping me rule out the ugly ones :D I’m glad about that.

I think this should be enough text to see how multiple posts look.
