Dunno? Pirate?

I'm not getting paid? Who is? can we make a profit blogging?

I think we need a little more pizzaz? Or maybe we could post movies of princesses driving trucks? I like that idea. I wish I could make it to Charlotte this weekend.

H-wood, didn't they used to call you a truck drivin' princess?

Before he was Hollywood, he was a truck driving princess. If you recall, when we voted on H's nickname, one of the variations was "Princess Hollywood".

As for the design, having a chance to think on it for a couple of days, I'm nostalgic for the old "Durham: Renown the world round" banner and the wider margins and compressed columns of the old site. We may have given up some of what made us distinctive in adopting this new design, ATMO.

I did it I did it!

Please, please feel free to change whatever you like, I just thought we needed a fresh look for the new year. And I'm still working on setting up the 'monetizing', but I plan to have that routed into the BCC account. The whole dollar.

I generally like wider margins, but I think you're right Ali -- this might be a forum for smaller margins. I'll poke around a bit over the next few days and see what I turn up.

What Now? HAA!

Why pink?

Why Not!!

Just having a little fun, feel free to change it. I liked having the bubbles. I think it looks a little cleaner but still has a little soul. The banner I obviously take very seriously (it must not be changed).

Linus likes pi-ink, Linus like pi-ink!

No, it's cool. I think you're right about the layout, and the colors are better than the old version.
