Dr Comfy Chair (Or how I learned to stop worrying about originality)

09 Dec 2004

Ever since I changed the layout of this site back in October, I’ve not been happy with it. It just hasn’t sat comfortably with me, and its an odd feeling – like my teeth being on edge.

The whole reason for the tree/landscape image was to do something in the ‘dead area’ on the right. It wasn’t intended to be seen by all, more a filler for those with larger screen resolutions. However, looking at the site on 800×600 brings the horrible realisation that it looks very dull indeed, and the landscape has become the focus.

So, the design will evolve again soon. Don’t expect anything radical, but the landscape’s days are numbered. In fact, if anything it will end up looking very unoriginal. But hey, I’m getting older, I want a pipe and slippers site, a comfy chair with the indentation of my rear in it. My attempt at making a slightly quirky chair is something I just don’t want to use.
