    I've been toying around with my template and stylesheets, would anyone care to see what I've done?
    There's still much work to be done, and I'd appreciate any constructive criticism.

    I think there should be some whitespace between the entries. They're kind of mashed together.
    There's also no way to go to the entry's permalink, without clicking on the comments link.
    Otherwise, not too shabby.

    I would agree about the need for space before on your post headings to visually separate the posts.
    Are you purposely anonymous on your blog, because I only found an email link, nothing about or info or other? If you want to be anonymous, that's ok, just asking.
    I have the same problem, but your text is not resizable, so on 1600X1200 (my working resolution) some things, especially your "badges" were very difficult to read.
    A good start.

    Maybe add a bit more color? Everything except for the header and link buttons are black and white.

    Definitely need space between the posts... they're kinda mushed together into one big page of text... O.O; Very busy. It's definitely got potential, tho'.

    Yep, like I said: there's a lot left to do, but thanks for the comments, though.
    Being anonymous: yes, that's a deliberate thing. Once I get the "about" page back up, it'll explain this, but I used to have a blog under my given name, and my employer found out about it and had a melt-down, saying that our competitor could use the things I said against our company. So, rather than stop blogging or start self-censoring, I closed down that blog, registered this under a proxy and reopened under the pseudonym 'Thinks Too Much.'
    White space between posts: yes, I've been meaning to get around to fixing that, but if I increase the margin-top it'll start with the first post and if I increase the margin-bottom it'll leave too much at the bottom post. Also, I has thinking about some sort of divider between posts, but the same problem applies. I'm sure there's a solution, I just haven't found time to look for it (yet.)
    Font size/lack of color: yes, I'll be adding the capability for each reader to choose fonts, sizes, colors and backgrounds. I've already got the overall background part working, I just don't have the form available. To see what I mean, enter http://www.maybeithinktoomuch.com?newcolor=AAAAAA where AAAAAA is the hexadecimal color you'd like for the background.
    Permalinks: yes, I'd forgotten about that. I don't like having the title as a permalink, so I changed that part of the template. I need to add it along with the comments/trackbacks/catagories somehow. Yet another thing to do...

    Well you can make your mind up if the margin is going top or bottom. Then adjust the parent container with a fix for the one that is out of line. Or go with a small adjustment top and bottom.

    I like the color trick. I can't wait to see it implemented.
