Some of the regular readers of this blog might have noticed that the design has changed. When I originally setup this blog, I of course chose one of the many ready-made themes available for WordPress. I settled on WP-Andreas01 and modified it for a two-column layout, swapped out the header image, and adjusted the colors. It was clean, it was light, and it was minimalist. Eventually I grew tired of it and wanted a dark theme, instead. I eventually settled on Never Ending Darkness which again was clean and minimalist. In the back of my mind, something bothered me even after I made the requisite changes to the layout, colors, and graphics. I finally determined that the design was cliché. So if I was to be happy with the design, it would have to be a design of my own making. This is a post-mortem analysis of that design.
