Warning: This blog entry was written two or more years ago. Therefore, it may contain broken links, out-dated or misleading content, or information that is just plain wrong. Please read on with caution.

As promised, I've made quite a few cosmetic changes to my blog – the most noticeable of those being the addition of what I call B-Sides. From now on, you'll always see the most recent B-Sides, which are basically quick links to interesting items from around the Web, in the sidebar. You'll also see, in some cases, who gets credit for helping me find the item, as well as a link to the full listing of all B-Sides since their inception (i.e. tonight).

Also as promised, the guestbook has been removed completely. I even decided to prune the photography and poetry pages since they hardly ever change and really aren't that noteworthy. I may put together a separate site for my poetry sometime in the future. In addition, I removed all the button links in favor of textual links that provide the same functionality without all the inconsistency in design (I'm a stickler for that sort of thing).

Under the hood, I've gone through and verified the validity of my XHTML on all major pages of the site (I was a bit surprised to see how many were invalid).

You might also have noticed that there is now an additional option under Archives for viewing a percentage of my posts by popularity. That's a pretty cool feature, even if only for my own interests.

All that is left for me to do, really, is work on my box model handling a bit to see if I can't change that "Semi-Valid CSS" link to read "Valid CSS" instead. I have a few other things I'm thinking about too, but I won't spill those beans just yet.

If you have any comments on the way I'm doing things, how I could do them better, why you don't care, etc., please by all means leave a comment or drop me an email.
