Redesign underway
Rich on Mullen, the GOP, and gay rights


From 2004-2006 I had the gray and brown design.  Then I wanted more colour, so I had the gold and yellow design until just today.  Way too long.  I had planned to change it for some time.  I wanted to go to something simpler, cleaner.  What do you think of the new design?  Is there something you really don't like or that isn't working for you?

It's so hard to judge web aesthetics with monitor sizes and settings varying so greatly. I recently got a larger widescreen monitor. I wish I'd kept my 300 bucks, I've had trouble reading websites on the new screen, because the resolution is higher, thus the content of a web page is in a sense smaller. On your site, the dark background took up almost 50% of the width, and was just overwhelming. However, when I increased the font size (CTRL plus + on a PC) it improved considerably because there was less background visible. I wonder if a brown texture/pattern might tone down the intensity some?

Tyepad doesn't offer me a texture or pattern option. On mine the brown is about 200 pixels on either side. Different monitors and settings do vary it.
