Version 2: Notes

A lot has been accomplished with my recent redesign, the best of which is a much more extensible design than my last one, which will give me a stronger framework for doing new things.
Much has already been added, with more yet to come. Here are some highlights:
- Moved to TextDrive's server. Should be a bit more stable than my prior host, I hope. I still have to iron some stuff out with the server move, but it went fairly smoothly, which was great.
- New archives. Rather than just listing all the entries on the site, I list them more thoroughly, grouping by date, popularity, and my personal favorites.
- Recent discussion and recent/popular entries on the homepage. This should make it easier for visitors to find what they are looking for, enabling them to either view the most recent entries or the most popular entries.
- Yellow fade technique when linking to comments.
- An intuitive error message on my contact page. Go ahead, error it, you won't be disappointed... :)
- Friends and Colleagues section lists the time of their last update. (or will, once I get the cron working correctly ;)
- Distractions work much better, displaying the description I write directly on the page, rather than in the links title attribute, which wasn't good. It also allowing me to set a referrer, so I can attribute links properly. One day I hope to make this script available to those who would like to use it...
- Better default styles for unordered lists, ordered lists, blockquotes, display images, etc.
Next up, I'll explain the grid system used with this design...
