Happy Matrix day! Oh -- you thought it was releasing on 05-15? Well, I did too, but they are showing in some areas today. As early as 10 PM. I am so there. Or will be there tonight.
So to commemorate this momentous occasion (can you tell I'm a fan?), I've restyled my site. Very few things could move me to take such action, so you know my feelings are sincere. This movie had better not suck.
"Reload" is the key word today, so reload this page a few times and take note of the randomized Matrix quotes and background graphics for the content panel (with IE, you'll have to scroll to the bottom of the page to see the background graphic. With Mozilla and Safari, it stays at the bottom of the screen like a good fixed attachment should).
Where's the navigation? It's on the upper-right side. Yes, that Flash thingy (assuming you have Flash and all that) is a mini-navigation control.
I need to add some more visual cues at least, but it does work. From left to right, it reads brad, georgia, savannah, seth, the real world, archives, movies, games, the oracle and preferences. All other links and sidebar clutter have been banished from this template to keep you focused.
And best of all -- and thanks to Smarty -- this redesign was done without having to press a "Rebuild" button of any kind.
Many thanks to Jesper for some CSS troubleshooting and the only person I know that has IE 5 handy. If anyone out there knows how to make the CSS even more consistent across all known browsers, please let me know.
Note: If you don't see the Matrix theme I've applied, it may be due to your existing style preference for this site. Click here to set your style to the Matrix theme.
