'Cheeky Chip?'

Have you been peeking at my new look Blogger template? Eerie how prophetic you were...

Yikes. That's never your Arse, is it?

Ruthie said...

"Hubris"... heehee. I don't think I've ever heard someone cite that as one of their bad habits.

Delicolor said...

Hubris is a front for my really bad habits, which I wouldn't admit to in front of strangers.

Ian, I'm told that it's a generic arse. I'm also told there's too much white space beneath it and that some people prefer the old style blog.

My hopes that the arse would prove popular have been severely dashed. This, I believe, is what the Greeks meant when they talked of hubris.

I'm also of the short top school- for repeat visitors, it means more scrolling. However, your most recent post top is visible which is the main thing.

I like the way you use all of the width. You can't readily see the side bar on 800*600 but so what? People should upgrade their 386's for the full effect.
