Go visit Evil Pundit, a longterm friend of this blog who’s now launched a blog of his own. Snappy design, quality words; it rocks. One to watch.

It does look nice. Tim, if you can, let him know that he seems to be having the same "scroll" problem as another blog I've visited (Mr. Hassle's Long Underpants). I'll just quote her explanation of the problem and the fix:

Some versions of Explorer won't let you scroll past the bottom of my sidebar. To fix this, go to View-)Text Size and choose a different size. You can go back to the original size and it should stay fixed.

I would mail him myself, but am having problems with e-mail this morning.

Thank you very much for the recommendation, Tim! Traffic is growing by the minute.

Thank you also, Ilyka, for the bug report and fix suggestion. I'll see if I can get the template to show that somewhere on the page.

Yup, the design sure is great.....

if you like blogs that look precisely the same as all the rest.

Hitting F11 twice also fixes the display error, and will save you a few clicks from the whole text sizing thing.

Remember, every click is sacred...

Heh heh heh, Evil Pundit, I love your latest post - 'End this Cruel Trade Now'... glorious! I've already posted it off to a couple of friends...

Analogue, it's true the design is based on a standard Blogger template, but I'm slowly modifying the code (and learning XHTML as I go). It's only been two days so far, I have some way to go.

I'll add a comments capability when I reach that level of sophistication -- until then, replying here is the best I can do.

Thanks for your easier fix, Captain Mojo. I'll incorporate it.

I'm glad you liked the picture, TimT. I've made quite a few others, and hope to get a proper gallery sorted out soon.

I like to watch.

Having witnessed his debates on Politcal Animial, the Evil Pundit can think on his feet, as well as produce a mighty fine blog.

Three thumbs UP!

Sorry Troy, but I must say bye bye to your pussy pie, as I prefer drinking whiskey and rye, should we debate I would have to say, this will be the day that you die, this will be the day that you die.
