You might see a fresh look to the site today if you come out of your RSS hiding ;-)

Shutter speed: 1/400s / Aperture: f/7.1 / Focal: 165mm / ISO: 100

So I was taking a look at my site stats a while back to find that only 5% of my visitors still run on the 800×600 resolution:

Site resolution statistics

The 600-pixel width on the images were starting to look a bit small to me on a 1280 resolution, so I wanted a 1-column theme so the images could be slightly larger (800 pixels). I did some heavy modifications to the ShinRa House Blu theme and I should be sticking with this for a while (or until I get bored of it). It’s been tested with Firefox and IE (there are bugs, but I’m not going to bother) and the smaller resolution photos still look ok. If you spot any errors let me know! I’ll also need to add back my “About” page some time…

Most of the stuff from the sidebar now is hidden in the menu to the top, in case you can’t find it.

Well, how do you like the change? ;-)

    GC: I agree, too convenient to leave it :-P

    a80: I had some feedback that the menu was hard to find… might make some fixes later to make it more visible!
