This Is Normal, Right?

So the moral of this story is “don’t switch site templates at the same time you restart a webcomic.” The short explanation is “I felt like I had to,” and the longer explanation is boring. Suffice to say that I felt like I needed to get it done instead of putting it off, and that willingness not to procrastinate taught me an important lesson in procrastination: Sometimes, It’s Good For You.

Anyway, the site is sporting a new template and a new look. It’s quite a bit busier than the old site. Normally “busy” is not a good word to use in design, but I think it might work. We’ll see. If I need to fix it, I’ll just… take it offline again, I guess.

I mean, that’s just what you do, right? You throw something up for everyone to see, use them as testers in your production beta environment, and then make changes in real time. If the computer industry has taught us anything, they’ve certainly taught us that.

As someone who reads through RSS, I have no idea what you’re talking about!

Happy Christmas!

RSS is working fine. That’s how I knew to come check out the new template.

I can’t say if it’s busier than the old one, as I only looked at the old one the day the RSS feed told me you had made *that* change.

It is so tempting to think “Sure, I can make multiple changes at once. It will work this time!” And it does, just often enough to tempt folk into gambling again :{

The next and previous comic/etc links are much less confusing than in the old theme.

If it’s less confusing, I take that as a plus!

Hey if you’re going to tilt a windmill anyway you might as well tilt two at the same time, right?
