Yes, I'm tinkering with the layout. Don't panic; all is well.

I've decided to go without Haloscan. You can, of course, still leave comments -- and I think Blogger's revamped commenting system is an arguable improvement (with the bonus that it presumably retains comments indefinitely instead of letting them "fade" after a few months).

As for the actual template: I think I'm going to stick with what I have now. This is the third or fourth design change I've made since starting this blog in January, 2003; longtime readers who remember the black-and-white "robot" motif are sure to find the present incarnation a decided improvement. I predict those of you who really liked the previous look will come to like this one, if only grudgingly, but if you have any major complaints please let me know.

Blue background really sucks for readability, and the menu on the right keeps dragging the eye over there.

I very strongly object.

Aw, Carol! Just when I was starting to really dig it! :-)

Haha!

The last time I revamped DRT's look, the colors were the hardest part. I shopped schemes around, and in the end decided that whatever you do, someone's going to hate it. So I picked one nobody really liked.

Well, plus the blue goes with the title. It's "Posthuman Blues," Carol -- not "Posthuman Mauve" or "Posthuman Teal."

It'll grow on you. I promise.

I like it, too.

If it's posthuman as literally as the blues, maybe you should have a person being a thick slab of wood holding up a mailbox or part of a fence.
