…DYH is back again?

Apparently, in addition to causing a DNS error that gave DYH a wonderful Error 500 Internal Server Error front page for a few days, it looks like my web hosting company was also kind enough to corrupt my WordPress install as well, which means I just spent the last 6 hours updating WordPress, which means that I then had to update my K2 theme install so that it would play nicely with the newly installed WordPress, which means that I had to update my custom K2 theme so that it would play nicely with the newly installed K2, which means that I’m not exactly happy with my web hosting company right now.

Because of this whole endeavor, I’m definitely going to be switching soon though, so once I do, get ready for a revealing and then a thorough bad mouthing of my current host. Anyone have any suggestions for a new one?

Unfortunately, this unexpected delay has also set back my triumphant return by a few hours, but it looks like everything is running somewhat smoothly for now, so expect a return to normalcy by the end of today (hopefully).

Thanks to everyone for sticking with me through this trying time, and I’m looking forward to what DYH has in store for ’08, so I hope you are too.

…It’s TGI Friday: New Theme?

As you can (hopefully) see, went under the knife recently, and is now sporting a new look. Version 1.1 incorporates a lot of the visual changes that I’ve been wanting to make for some time now, with the biggest being the addition of a second sidebar. Overall, there is now more information available on one screen, and I think it makes everything a little easier to look at.

For today’s TGI Friday, I’m asking for some feedback. Do you like the new look? Hate it? Is anything broken? Since I develop on a Mac, I can’t see the site in Internet Explorer, so I’m especially interested to hear how it looks over in IE land (though you should be using Firefox anyways). As always, both positive and negative comments are appreciated.

In addition to the design changes, DYH is now a little wider as well. Unfortunately, this means that some of you might have the edges of the site cut off by your browser, but according to my Mint stat tracker, 87% of you will still be able to view the new size in its full glory, so I had to make a few sacrifices for the greater good (though I do apologize to anyone who now has to side scroll). Remember though, if you subscribe to the RSS Feed, you can see the content however you like (or however your RSS viewer allows you to like), so there is always an alternative solution.

Lastly, in case you were wondering, this site runs off of WordPress, uses K2 as the theme, and sports a custom K2 style (called DYH) that I developed. And coffee. Lots of coffee.
