It was felt here at The Eye, that perhaps it was getting a little too crowded, that there was perhaps a little too much information on the page.
Did you really need to know what the time was here? If you know where I’m situated, and you’re in the same time zone you know what time it is. If you’re in a different time zone, you probably don’t care.
Of course, we have keep some advertisements which we hope you don’t find overbearing, and indeed hopefully useful on occasions, and we do need to keep the lights on here too, and this blogging lark does cost time and money, even though we enjoy it and it’s fun.
Some looked very nice, and classy, and we actually did do some code rewriting on a couple of them to customize them to what we wanted – and then changed our minds.
There was one them that was really cool, but it wouldn’t allow me to use my flickr images in the way that the designer had got the whole thing set up, and I didn’t want to go re-loading them all again onto my own server. It’s not that I’ve not got the space; it’s that The Eye has been around a few years, and I haven’t got the time to make a few thousand previous postings look pretty.
One day, when I start a whole new blog though, I’ll take a look at some of these more unusual designs again.
Anyway, we hope you like the new look!
Please do comment or drop us an email and tell us your thoughts, good or bad. We’d love to hear from you.
I like a wide variety of music. As I’ve mentioned in previous postings, I haven’t bought a CD in years, however, I do subscribe to Napster. No, not the bad old P2P Napster, but the legal one. It’s $14.99 a month, for as much music as you care to download and listen to on your computer or your mp3 player. So DRM rears it’s ugly head, but you can always buy the downloads separately without it.
Alan Jackson is a country artist I’ve liked for a number of years. Up-tempo and mostly foot tapping light songs, not too much of the dog died stuff, and this is one of Alan’s brightest albums, and it’s also a whole album, and his first album too, that’s full of entirely original songs.
You can listen to the album here….
