The site evolves… again!

Given my habit of changing things up on this site about every year I'm actually overdue for a new look. The biggest change this time around is that I've gone back to the 2 column layout. The 3 column layout was fine, but there were times when I thought it was just too busy. I was trying to get a lot of information in front of people but maybe sometimes less is better.

The 'About Me' box is back at the upper right, the 2 column layout allowed me to increase the width for each post, and the Silverlight tagcloud which lived beneath the two right-hand columns is gone. Silverlight was a good technology despite never really catching on beyond the Microsoft-centric developer audience, but it's time has come and gone. The advent of Windows 8, which has no support for the Silverlight browser plug-in model, proves that much. Besides, Silverlight was never supported in the Safari browser which means users of iPhones and iPads were never seeing the tagcloud, anyway.

The header image, which I love, remains the same, as does the general top menu layout.

Here, then, is the newest look, as well as an assortment of past images depicting previous designs.
