The new blog theme comes from a new blog template developed by Bob Leah, developerWorks Chief Design Strategist. Some of the features which you might see turning up are:
- thumbnail and preview, so that you don't have to suffer when I write my posts with -verbose turned on
- widgets for Twitter, Facebook Like, Digg, Delicious (if you don't know what they are, ask your grandchildren)
- popular tags
- previous and next post (assuming it has been written - we haven't yet worked out how the blog can write itself)
Annoyed by AIX Down Under
Incidentally, do you ever want to search for some AIX-related question and find that AIX Down Under appears in the first eight results, even if the post sheds no light on your question? So do I. If you find it annoying, think of what it does for me to search for an answer to something and having to plough past a series of posts by a guy who knows he doesn't know what he's talking about. No, I haven't arranged for hackers in distant countries to fudge the Google results. I'm just a little overzealous with my use of tags.
Whether you're annoyed or enthused by this blog, I hope you like the new layout.
Thanks to Bob Leah for his great new blog template.
