I need to upgrade this bitch

| Aug. 18, 2008

I think it’s about time I upgraded my website.

I mean I like the green/white/yellow color scheme… but it makes the whole thing look more than a little, er, 1998. I don’t want to fall into that design trap of 2007 where every site looked like Apple’s everything was shiny shiny with pointless Web 2.0 badges and ‘wet floor’ reflections, and I don’t want it to look like the 2008 trend of having a site covered in a mess of splatters and spray paint, like Jackson Pollock threw up all over Banksy. I want a site that looks modern and which will feature what it is I’m working on, and the blog part of my site pushed back so my fears and failings aren’t quite so, erm, prominent.

    I have the perfect .gif for that of a laughing skull. Or maybe I should use something more tasteful, like a flickering flame?
