Another 'new' look



A few days ago, I unveiled a new look for the blog. After some tweaking, I was pleased with the new, more contemporary appearance.

Unfortunately, I discovered via emails that (1) People using Adblocker could not see the site and (2) A lot of you use Adblocker. I don't understand why Google would use a template that drives away so many people. But then, there's a lot of things about Google I don't get. At this point, I feel locked in to Blogger — moving the blog would require a lot of work — but while there are aspects of Blogger I like, there are downsides, too.

If hardcore readers of the blog who knew me well were emailing me to complain, I had to assume that people who did not know me and might not have my email address handy also might be having problems. That could be a lot of people. So I felt I had to make a change, again.

I want everyone to have access to the blog, so I've gone to yet another layout, one that's rather similar to what I had before. It will require some further tweaking, but from what I can tell so far, everyone can access it.

I apologize both to the folks who enjoyed my new look and will miss it, and to those who were inadvertently locked out by the new design. Regular blogging will resume soon.

Happy winter solstice! Tom, I find this "new second version look" of your blog more appealing. It looks more systematic, easier to read and easier to find things. That's just me.

I agree with Branka... well done.
