In several respects, I'm starting fresh back here in Toronto. My blog now reflects this with a brand spanking new redesign, which has been a long time coming.
The layout and background images are generally what I'm going to stick with, but there will be some minor cosmetic changes in the next little while. I only realized when redesigning my blog that it looked like crap on IE, but you should be using Firefox anyways :p.
Some of the fancy things I added (hacked) to my blog are no longer working b/c of the update to Blogger, such as the peek-a-boo comments, recent comments, and the comment feed is messed up. The random picture feature will make its reappearance in a day or two. New features of interest are the labels and the new archive display, which shows counts for the number of posts per month :p. If I get around to it, I'll go back and label my old posts (all 366+ of them).
I'm open to any comments or suggestions you have about the redesign.
