A Blog Upgrade?

I've been trying to add something special to the site and I'm gonna keep plugging away at it until I get it right or I give up.

While I'm working on it the blog may flicker in and out of existence. No worries though 'cuz I backed everything up to a stack of floppies.

And as for my effectiveness at getting this done, I think I've earned the nickname 'FiFi'.

Blog Banner Picture

Okay. Here's the link to the blog's banner picture. That's all I know about it.

Blog Background Color

Kim didn't have a problem with the mustard color. But when I showed her the spinny-triangle-widget for changing colors she looked over my shoulder while I tried some greens.

Okay. I can't find a setting to remove the requirement to include an email address when you post a comment. I read the fine manual and it's not mentioned. I think it's baked into the code.

I could dig into the code and try to find it and change it, but life is too short for that. The blog doesn't test to see if the email address you enter is valid, so put whatever you want in the 'email address' field.

Email Addresses Required to Post a Comment

I had to include an email address to comment on a post. I certainly don't care about people's email addresses re: the blog so I'll try to remove the requirement.

If you care at all, what do you think about the blog's background colors?
