Welcome to the newly updated A Life Less Ordinary!
It has become somewhat of an annual tradition for me to update my website on its “birthday”. Each year tends to bring a new visual style, new features, and improvements in a number of areas.
This year’s improvements and additions are really exciting! They include a new, sleeker user interface; ALLOpod podcasts with show notes; del.icio.us links in the Friday Funday and ALLOpod show notes; a new outdoor webcam; all three webcams are “always on”; permalinks for blog posts, Friday Funday posts, and ALLOpod posts; easy access to the photo essays; XHTML and CSS are W3C valid; and more!
Now, on to the bugs. The site was designed for viewing in FireFox, but displays pretty well in both Internet Explorer and Safari (I haven’t tested anything else because, let’s face it, they don’t really command much of a market share. You could make a case for Opera, but the other three make up over 90% of my traffic, and Opera barely breaks 2%). The biggest differences I’ve noticed between the browsers is in spacing, but nothing is so far off that it actually looks bad (well, not bad enough to warrant special versions). If you do happen to notice anything buggy, please let me know. Chances are, there will be a few things that made it through the transition incorrectly.
I hope everyone enjoys the new site and the new features. Drop me a line and let me know what you think!
UPDATE: Thanks to Phoenix for pointing out that all previous page addresses have changed (in other words, if you subscribed to my RSS feed, you’ll need to update the link). This is a one-time change, and I apologise that it happened, but now I have the site set up the way I want it, so I won’t change it again.0 People like this. Be the first!
