yesterday, I went live w/ v3 of my site @ http://www.village-idiot.org
There were quite a few things I wanted to do, and most of it involved a very minimal design.
My last design was heavy on some custom flash, and had also become a way to showcase some of the plugins I’ve written over time. Consequently, I thought it was becoming over-fluffed. Granted some of the things were nice, but..
I also wanted to be as image free as possible. My last two designs were not really image heavy, but I wanted to see what I could accomplish without them. As a result, there is only one image used thats not inside a post — the feed icon.
I’ve also decided to completely disregard people that are still @ 800×600. Both of my previous designs were fixed width, and displayed nicely at that resolution – this time, I decided I wasnt going to give up space to accommodate that. Consequently, the footer wrapping isnt perfect at that resolution.
If you are using that resolution and see it — dont bother telling me, I already know, and honestly, I dont care 🙂
Flame me if you like.. it wont matter.
I’m not too interested in usability issues — ie remarks like “it needs a search box in the header” are likely to fall deaf on deaf ears. I toyed with that, and decided against it. It wont happen.
I do have a print css but forgot to include the link to the print page.. that’s forthcoming.
What I am interested in is very specific breakage in different browsers, like camino and opera. Things that are blaringly obvious — the black breaks, or something like that. Please, if you see something that looks like that, let me know, including the browser name version — A screenshot of the problem would be most awesome too.

I am aware of some of the older posts looking funny, thats duue in large part to how I had to do things with my last theme. I am slowly going to go through those old posts, and arrange some of them differently but thats not a priority.
