Spring Renewal

Well, it’s finally spring outside, or at least it seems like it is. I’m tentative, because Winnipeg’s weather is completely unpredictable, and we could end up with another snowstorm in May. You always has to be prepared for the worst, I say.

That said, it’s nice and sunny outside today, so I’m going to drag my butt out of this chair and get some fresh air. As you can see by the renovations, I’ve been sitting here getting the new redesign out the door. It’s time to relax for a bit.

The entire site’s layout is now basically table-free, with some exceptions, as I’m feeling too lazy to start digging through all of the old entries hunting for tables. The site should validate, however (for people who care about those kinds of things), and in general I think the site should work in all of the version 5+ modern browsers. Older browsers will get a stripped-down version that should still look okay - I hope.

What’s left to do? Well, I plan to do a complete overhaul and redesign of the photography area when I find more time. And, I need to put up the old design into the retired sites area when I have a moment.

At some point, once I get the structure of the site cleaned up (god, it’s a mess), I also want to give visitors the option of choosing from a few different layouts, one being very close to the old “grey” look. If you really dislike this layout (or really liked the old one), it will return, given time.

(Edit: Okay, so something is really, really buggered with IE 5 and IE 5.5 for Windows. I’m tired so I’m not going to fix it right now, but I am aware of it.)

Later: Okay, I think I got it - everything should be working now. <said with a glowing sense of accomplishment>
