It's time for a new look, so Almost Empty Musings has undergone a facelift.
The idea comes from Thomas Marban, who has a great screen blog of more than 4500 different design ideas. I choose to blatently steal the new look from back-word. It's got a clean look and I thought I could handle the design implementation.
If you look at the bottom of the page you'll see I didn't quite couldn't figure out how to keep the whole menu / footer section centered. Please don't hesitate to drop me a line with the solution to my coding garbage.
Update (8/15): I still cannot get the menu below to operate correctly. (Apparently CSS doesn't handle three columns very well.) And in the meantime I've botched the Blogger header bar at the top of the page.
Update (9/18): I cannot take the unfinished design any longer. I've changed to a template available at the link in the page footer.
