Those of you reading via RSS will probably not have noticed, but I’ve had the virtual paint-rollers and stencils out over the weekend.
Yes, VCTB is being redecorated. It’s a little clunky and simple so far, but at least it doesn’t look like a straight-from-the-box WordPress install any more. Please bear with me as I delve into the magical yet convoluted arcana of CSS, PHP, HTML, and a whole slew of other acronyms. I’m considering taking a few days off work so I can just work solidly and get it to a satisfactory point.
In defense of the current implementation, however, I think it’s much easier on the eyes to read white text against black. The colours of the links and titles and so on will need to be worked on, though, as will the ugly text in the header. For those who are curious, the header image is a shot across Mexico City from what was once the tallest building in Central America. It’s an awesome view – in every direction you look, all you can see is endless city, right out to the horizon. It’s an incredible place, Mexico. If you ever get the chance, make sure you go, and be sure to hook up with some locals to show you the bits the tourists don’t see.
Anyway, feedback and suggestions on ways to make VCTB easier (and more funky) on the eye are more than welcome. That’s what the comments box is for – feel free to make use of it. In the meantime, thanks for dropping by, it’s always a pleasure to see you.
