A New Pretty Template! Yippee!

As you all are aware, I had a pretty ugly template since starting Reassigned Time. I just could never get it up to learn the html to make the thing not suck. Luckily, the awesome, incomparable Clare over at Ink and Incapability took pity on me and made this confection of orange-y-stripe-y-Man-Kitty loveliness. Yay!!!!!!

Way cool. And Man-Kitty looks rather hansome at the top.

Wow! Now that's eye-catching!

tardis said...

Actually, I liked your old template better. The more colour there is the more it interfers with reading the text.

What a lovely Man-Kitty pink nose!

blithering moron said...

cool

Kate said...

Cats should always take center stage in a blog, I say ;). Love the stripes and the man-kitty!

hmmm... I guess I messed up my first comment.

The cat is spectacular...

The halloween stripes are less so. Particularly since the text colors are so similar. It's an explosion in a pumpkin factory. ;-)

JustMe said...

i like very much :o)

and can't wait for tomorrow!

Nik said...

No no no no no I don't like it at all. And where are the wowza's? I'm so sad that stripes are the answer.

Nik said...

Oh wait, the wowza's just reappeared. But still. There's stripes. How can I sleep?

Very cool. Love the Man-Kitty, and how even he is anonymous in the banner! :)

Pink Cupcake said...

I love it! Especially the picture of the Man-Kitty. :) Clare is indeed the Goddess of the Template!

They say that orange is the color of insanity (actually, a review of Connie Chung back in 2002 did, and has stayed with me).

Seems perfect for Dr. Crazy.

I like the stripes.

Derrick said...

Dr. C, is there a problem with your "links to this post" link? I don't think it is working as you planned. Or maybe my machine is just not playing fair..lol.

Kristiface said...

Loving the new template! Very awesome!

Dr. Crazy said...

Thanks for the comments, everybody! For those of you who don't like the new template, well, maybe you'll get used to it. I may tweak it as we go along, but I've got to say that I really like it, so it's probably going to stay. If you find it difficult to read, might I suggest subscribing to the blog via bloglines? That might solve the problem. (I don't find it hard to read, but maybe that's just me.)

Oh, and I'll try to get Clare to figure out what's going on with the "links to this post" thing.

And PPP - I LOVE that orange is the color of insanity. Who knew?

helenesch said...

I love it, too! And man-kitty matches the color scheme very nicely (maybe that's how you chose the colors?).

I don't find it hard to read at all, but maybe it loads differently on another browser.

Jill said...

I can barely read your posts in Safari on a Mac :( Are the stripes not supposed to cover the entire page, going behind all the words?

Mel said...

Dr C,
I think there's a small error in your new template -- on Firefox on PC, the current post and its comments are first displayed in a taupe box with the stripes as background -- easy to read. But then if you scroll down, the post and comments are repeated, displayed directly on the stripes. Different browsers are probably picking up one or the other version.

I looked at your page source and it looks like a big chunk of your template got repeated -- just a "paste" error probably. Look for the closing html code in the middle, and you'll see what I mean. Your designer can fix it easily. (and I like the new look btw)

like the template!

Dr. Crazy said...

I THINK it's fixed - if it's not, can you send me an email or leave a comment?
