The leftward and other blatherings of Span (now with Snaps!)

new year, new me!

well new blog colour scheme anyway - last time there were suggestions (read: complaints) that there wasn't enough red. i think that's pretty much rectified now.

also I've started a new blog to chronicle my forthcoming travels, tentatively called travelspan, but there won't be much of interest there until late March.

still takes a long time to load though

It's very legible and loads speedishly for me. Remember - form follows function - it's the content that matters.

thanks for the feedback - one of the reasons it takes a little while to load is the Recent Comments hack, which was provided to me (very generously!) by Antarctic Lemur and I'm loathe to change it, quite apart from the fact that I have no idea how to change it to make it speedier anyway. Hope the slowness doesn't interfere too much for my dial-up readers.

it's cool Span - might need you to help me with mine sometime :)

I think it looks fantastic, and more red is always good.

It does take time to load which would be okay, if you updated more often (so it was worth the wait more often)

how often is "more often"? you could always subscribe through bloglines and then you don't have to go around all the blogs checking to see if they have updated - it saves me so much time. it's on the sidebar near the bottom somewhere :-)

also, i'm having a couple of problems with the template and could do with some advice - for some reason my side-bar keeps to the right until the end of the post or comments and then switches over to the left - i current have text-align:left, and the only thing that seems to fix it is making it text-align:right, but i don't like that look anymore (i used to have it before the recent changes). help! :-)
