An Explanation is in Order for the New Look

In short, my blog broke. Something bad happened with the numerous scripts that has occurred. As such, this has forced my hand. I’ve been meaning to work on a new layout for some time over the winter break before New Years. Now technical difficulties have ramped up the schedule a lot. School just started for me so I’ll need to work swiftly. I had narrowed down my theme choices to a few and this was one of them. Customization tends to take a bit of time. This will be no different.

So if you’re reading this in a feedreader or via email, please keep it up.

What this means to you

Absolutely nothing. What this means is that some functionality is reduced. No Twitterfeed, no recommended readings, no recent posts, etc.

I’m so embarrassed. Bear with me. Thank goodness for four day weekends.

  1. I can’t tell you how much time I spent fixing broken code and staying up late on my site. I’m glad you were able to get it back up. It is definitely better than seeing a Fatal Error message.

  2. Don’t be embarrassed, happens to the best of us!

  3. Snazzy comment field, Visin likes =D
    Anyways, I completely understand the errors in coding but if you need any help with that sort of thing I can pretty much guarantee I could fix it. Lol I have seen it all.

    Keep up your good work and don’t let the small flaw of an error mess with the quality!

  4. I, for one, love the new layout. PHP FAIL FTW! Hooray for script errors! 😛

  5. Well, at least it was a script problem – I panicked when I was getting errors! What would I do without Matticus to distract me from work?

  6. At least you still have all yr posts! This one’s a little grey, but I’m guessing some sprucing up is happening behind the scenes already. 😉

  7. No worries mallet. Shit always happens. Plus, at least you keep archives.

  8. Matt… you know the legions of Mattifans will not be deterred by something as simple as a layout under construction!

    <3 always

  9. This is like being caught with your pants down. It’s like having a riding crop on when you’re raiding. Matt doesn’t DO stuff like this. He does’t use template layouts. He uses “CUSTOMIZED” template layouts after he spends a good part of his life working on them BEFORE unleashing them upon the world.

    How humiliating.

  10. Matt,
    I love the new layout!

  11. I have to admit, this morning when I pulled up your site I was like “what happened?!” but I really like this format. Anything you change will take some getting used to, but visually this is very nice.

  12. LOL! Forced to use a non-customized layout, o the horror! /comfort. There, there, poor Matticus! Don’t worry we don’t think less of you for it… well maybe just a little… generic template, how tacky! xD juuuust kidding

    druidchicks last blog post..Have I become one of THOSE girls?

  13. It does look a bit different, but it’s nice, too. At least when I can find posts to look at (via the archive). If I just go to the blog main page, it’s blank.

    Yet another hassle I don’t have to deal with by not having my own blog. 😉 Best of luck getting it sorted out.

  14. The comment balloon with the $ sign is pretty funny. You and Wyn are money!

  15. Well I was thinking it was pretty cool till I got to this comment box…and I had to double-check to be sure I wasn’t about to sign for a car at National Car Rental! 😉

    Actually, I like the scheme, but I think maybe you could tone down the bright green a bit.
