New Layout

Although I did like the all black look with the three-column black letterhead theme, Mike Lucoco’s Wucoco 3-column theme is one of the best out there. And if you know a little bit of PHP, updating it to take advantage of WP 2.3+ takes only a few minutes to do.  Though getting the post avatars to look just right took a little doing, but I managed to get them to show up and then without having the text so damn close to it.  I’ve redone the header graphic and changed over to Wucoco last night. Head over to the site and take a look, and let me know if you can read the entries a little easier.

OpenID now available!

I finally got OpenID working for comments and logging in. Basically, if you use an OpenID identity (LJ,, etc), you can use your livejournal url ( in the website part of the comments and it will use your LJ credentials to identify you to my blog. I’m hoping that eventually I can use this to create the wordpress equivalent to a friends list, but I’m still working on that. Anyway, try it out and put a comment in on one of my posts (or this one). I did a test using my LJ account and it worked pretty well.

Let me know if you run into any problems.
