I had other things I needed to do today, and the new blog sucked up WAY too much of my time. I’m working on making the new banner actually look cool, rather than merely function. It’s going… OK, I guess. I’ve already spent a long time trying to figure out colors, when I think the core problem is that the fonts just plain don’t work well together. The guest poem system is mostly done, but I don’t have it displaying the author pictures yet. There’s a bit of a problem there; For most of the poems there’s plenty of room for a picture, but there are a few poems that need a lot of space. I’ll work something out.
I also worked on the comment popup window over there. It’s not great, but it’s a heck of a lot better than it was.
Overall, what do you think? Still to come: sound effects (and a mute button), and a way to play “All for me grog!” I might sneak in a couple of other surprises, too.
