Frohe Weihnachten, Internet

And to all a good night

The new site is finally here, my Christmas present to you (if something looks out of whack, try forcing your browser to refresh (ctrl + F5 in Internet Explorer/Firefox on Windows)). The design came to me in a vision a few months ago and, simple as it is, I've struggled over the last few months to find the time and concentration to implement it. These were the goals:

I like how it turned out. I'm not happy with everything yet but I reached the point where I had to get it out there or give up on it for good, so it's being kicked from the nest on the eve of our year-end vacation. The font you see in the titles and banner is Futura which I've had a crush on for a while. The post titles are generated via this dynamic text replacement technique I read about at A List Apart.

Let me know what you like and don't like, what's broken or doesn't make sense, what you can't find or figure out. Here's hoping that 2008 is a year of renewal for the Republic.
