Some changes to the site

Hey, everyone!  Notice the snazzy, yet austere, new look?  It’s not permanent.  My wonderful webmaster, Terry Trippany, is trying to figure out why, occasionally, all you see at my site is a string of advertisements.  There’s obviously something nasty buried in my theme’s coding.  After fruitlessly looking through endless lines of code, Terry realized that the only way to deal with the problem is to throw everything out and start anew.

This is a really nice, clean-looking theme, but it has some deficits, most notably the fact that it’s two columns, not three.  And although all the ads were irritating, I want them back, because I was earning money off of them — at least enough to keep the dogs in kibble and the mice in mouse food.

So, expect to see some changes over time as Trip works to get rid of some nasty malware that took up residence at the Bookworm Room

    I’m sorry Bookworm, but I’m not a fan of the new design. It’s just, well, not you. It doesn’t fit your blog, it’s too austere, minimalistic and modern for your blog. Also, the third column with the categories is a real lack. I’m sorry, but I’m not liking it too much.

    Also, the grey text is quite hard to read. I’m currently on my (pretty old) laptop and it’s feasible, but I have to make an effort. I expect that it would be even harder on my desktop computer with a much bigger, higher quality, bright screen.

    Grey text on white background. Grey text on grey slate background.

    Instead of masturbation, this really causes blindness. Instead of Red Rider BB guns shooting your eye out.

    They tried to make my text gray on wordpress before. There was either a custom html edit I had to make or there was an option to change the text colors in the format template.

    This is wild. I was just reading here less than 12 hours ago, and it was the site I was used to seeing.
    Either that or it was better beer than I thought.
    Good luck with the debugging.

    Don’t you wish you could easily trash health care dot gov as easily as you could delete a template?

    I’m viewing at 175% and I only see 1 column. Which is all that matters to me. The other 2 seems to be wrangled down at the bottom here. 3 columns is about 1 too many.

    I miss the comment link being at the bottom of the post. I also miss those little arrows that goes forward and back to the new/old post. My mouse muscles keep trying to point to em, but they are no longer there.

    The new temporary look leaves me shaken, not stirred. Grey on white is a bit of a struggle, at least on my browser. When you get it back to its former self, please do put the comments link back at the bottom. Like others, I prefer it there…

    I am glad you explained what was up. I didn’t visit yesterday because I was traveling so when I got here today I was taken aback. This is waaay too antiseptic a look for you. Good luck with the repair. I look forward to the new look.
