Another new link in my blogroll, this one is Human Rights America. It’s got lots of interesting stuff…
If you had the good fortune to be reading my blog yesterday between about 2 and 4 in the afternoon, you may noticed that I was experimenting with lots of wacky blog themes (again). This time I decided to try a bunch of themes I had not previously looked very closely at (these would be the standard WordPress themes, about 20 or so to choose from). I’ve now settled on two that I like reasonably well and that may possess that most nearly unattainable of qualities, lasting power, the holy grail of graphical interfaces in my opinion. I may switch between this and the other one regularly, just to keep things interesting.
In other non-news, I’m still deciding on a new name for this blog. Something a bit more sensible but still original. It’s coming, eventually.
Astute readers of my blog, assuming any exist, will have noticed that I have a tendency to change blog themes on a regular basis. This is because it's difficult finding a good theme with staying power – by which I mean a theme that doesn't get tired after a few days, at least to my eyes. Lots of themes look pretty, but I after a while begin to look dull and my blog is in need of refreshment. It's the same principle that's at work when I choose a desktop theme or desktop background. Many themes and pictures I find on the web look nice but but start to hurt my eyes after a few days, and only a select few have been able to remain tolerable. (Aside: I think the OS X theme is like this. I don't have a Mac, but this is one reason I would be reluctant to purchase one. I'm sure that full-of-eye-candy aqua theme is going to drive me to distraction once the novelty wears off. I like Bluecurve much better – subtle prettiness, unobtrusive, much higher productivity.)
Anyway, I've now switched themes again and hope that this one sticks. Also I will try to find a new name for this blog. I chose the rather tongue-in-cheek title for this blog because I wasn't sure how I would direct its focus over time. Now that the subject matter for the blog appears to have settled down I will change titles just as soon as I work out a decent one.
