Quick Update

What do you think of this one?

I really like it and it's what we're going to be looking at from now on, so any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am having some problems with the color scheme because I cannot change the title color. It has an option to do so from the Dashboard and when that didn't work, I tried hand-coding it through HTML - all to no avail. For right now, it is going to look pretty monotonous for that very reason.

The feed is finally working again, so make sure to subscribe! I promise to keep an eyeball on that, just in case whatever killed it the last time crops-up again.

For those of you who use Blogger and wonder how I finally managed to get things working, I went with a Custom Domain (as opposed to FTP). You have to have access to your DNS records so you can change your CNAME. Most hosts allow you access to these things or you can usually contact your customer support and they can do it for you if you can't get to it yourself.

Once I am done getting the general elements in place, I will post on the technicalities involved here to help you get the most out of The OddBlog. I also have to get back to the tags, which I am almost done with (just getting them weeded-down - I still have to develop a solid classification system to ensure you can find what you are looking for).

Hopefully all of this will be out of the way by the end of the week (of course, I'll still be tweaking it off and on - as always), but I am making no promises.
