Well, it has been a while, hasn’t it? Let’s talk about that, and some modifications I’m making to the site.
First of all, unless you’re reading this literally minutes after its publication, you’ll have seen the new background image. Actually, it’s the same as the header image, but blown way up, blurred, and desaturated a bit. I’ve been meaning to do something like this from the beginning, but ran into some (in retrospect, easily solvable) issues that stopped me dead at the time, so that’s why it’s taken so damn long. While I’m not head-over-heels in love with the effect (the harsh border between the header image and the body of the site is a bit of an eyesore, for example), I like it a hell of a lot more than the solid off-white color that was there before. Thus, this is what we’re going with for the foreseeable future. I’ve made sure it looks okay at a variety of screen resolutions and levels of scaling, so no matter what size screen you’re on, it should be pretty much jank-free at this point.
