Wherein I acknowledge a re-design of this site

     Normally I'm writing about something, and then I put those words on this site for you to read.  This time I will put together a few words to comment on the site itself.  It's not something I do often, but a re-working such as this deserves the aforementioned few words of mention.

     The previous site design was reaching for and yet completely missing the point of minimalism, and I've also had a thing for white text on a black background for a long time now. I don't know why.  And then there was the header: after proving to myself that I could make a passable representation of a lego brick in Photoshop, I proceeded to stack that image into the W so familiar to you.  The whole jumbled mess of header and 'design' came together onto this site, looking all too much like something a person with a lot of ambition and not many lego bricks would build and call a house.  I know, I've tried both.  The more I looked at the site, the less I liked it.  And so this.

     It's still very much a work in progress, but hopefully it's easier on your eyes now, and you find the down-toning and re-ordering of elements pleasing.  I'd like to hear what you think.  There's a comment link at the bottom of each post on the site, feel free to use it.
     So for my personal pride / sanity and for your eyesight, I present to you the re-designed Web-Legos, with all thanks to the Lego Corporation  for not forcing me to think up a new metaphor for the site.
