I’ve you’ve been a very frequent visitor to my site the last few days you’ll have noticed lots of colour changes. After trying out what seems like half the colours known in HTML and CSS, trying to find the right solution for the main column, I’ve finally gone for another solution: a background image.

What you’re looking at is the heart of a flower I took a picture of in Berlin. If you have an indecently large screen you may actually be looking at a substantial part of the flower. It’s been covered with a semi-transparent layer of white to improve readability.

At 46 kilobytes it makes the site a little dial-up friendly, but I think it should still be managable for the broadband challenged. As soon as I can find someone still living in such primitive conditions who’s willing, I’ll have them try it.

Addendum: I may be playing around with it a little in future, but the majority of it is now right (in the fourth version). Still don’t be too surprised if it changes a little in the near future.

I put up two sets of photos recently. A recent set from Berlin, and an older set from Rome in 2005. The set from Rome is here partly just to flesh out site content and justify adding a “Photos” category to the menu. So don’t be very surprised if it vanishes altogether at some point in the future.

I’m adding this to the new site news category¬† retroactively. I had just put this news up on the main site, but now that Site News is there I’m working on a new text for the main page itself. And this of course really belongs in the Site News category.

I’m continuing the work on the site. The latest updates is the Site News blog category, which should also be appearing (with the last two items) on the front page.

Hopefully this very visible “what’s happened lately” system I’ll actually keep adding stuff to the site regularly, rather than in occasional bursts.
