Well, that's the update done, and you should be looking at the new theme now.
It needs work (the current "Archives" list in the sidebar is 67 lines long and I need to remember how to limit it to just the last few months like in the old version), but it's a start.
I'll be puttering around behind the scenes for a little while yet. Course, the point of all this is that I'd like to start blogging regularly again; there's not much point to going to all this trouble to pretty it up if I don't start using it.
As you might expect, just the update itself gives me plenty of things to talk about -- what I like about modern Web design and what I don't.
More to come, I should think.
