Blog Redesign!

I've redesigned my weblog. I've always wanted to do it, but Roller's templating and theme system was too daunting. It's easy to tamper with the HTML your blog generates, but as a web designer by trade, I wanted total control over the HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Alas, lots of HTML-generation happens deep within Roller-specific Velocimacros that you have no obvious control over. So, if you really want control, you have to get intimate with Roller. You have to have its babies and cook it three square meals a day, and not complain when it doesn't want to cuddle. Gritting my teeth, that's what I finally did, and this is our love child.

Very very nice. In fact, I think it might be the best theme ever developed for Roller, even considering those ported from Wordpress. Kudos! - Dave

Thanks, Dave! I couldn't have done it without Roller's abilities. So Kudos to you and your team too :)
