Nice place ya got here. I miss the planetary theme, but I'll wait and see what you come up with.

One quibble: your current template has the bug found in a lot of current blog templates. I'm used to using my spacebar to advance down a page, but I have to use the scrollbar or mouse wheel, or the PageDown button. (I'm using IE6 on XP Home, haven't upgraded to SP2).

No biggie if this doesn't get fixed -- just a data point for you.

Comment comment comment comment.

Wait, you didn't want comments with substance, didja John?

(Though I've never provided one before - why should I start now?)

Again, this is virtually impossible to read against that background.

John Scalzi, you are "teh cool".

So, are we going to get any thoughts on The Debate from you, or are you going to pass? Not that I'd mind you passing, but the suspense is killing me...

This works. (Posted through the page-view window of SharpReader, an RSS utility.)

Using Safari 1.2.3 on an iMac running Mac OS 10.3.5, commenting to test John Scalzi's new Whatever, how we doin'?

Seems to be working. Life is grand when things work out right, isn't it? Now go eat an apple and get the bloody aDSL set up, buckaroo.

Ryan Bayne | October 5, 2004 08:18 AM

Seems to be working for all these people above...

Leland Gregory | October 5, 2004 08:35 AM

Ah splendid...poking at the same big pile of stool with a stick, eh monkey? Now it looks like a flower! Now it looks like Jupiter! Cretin.

FYI - The background image you're using today (10/5/2004) makes it impossible to read the text on the right-hand side of the screen. Also the names of commenters are in a color which makes them almost illegible.

Glad to see you back in business, though.

John Scalzi | October 5, 2004 09:16 AM

Yeah, today I'll be fiddling with colors and etc.

Vardibidian | October 5, 2004 11:14 AM

I suspect you've got all the comments you need, now, but I'm always happy to procrast... er ... help.


Steve Leigh | October 5, 2004 11:50 AM

FWIW -- I can't read the comments at all, and had to highlight the text on the comment boxes to see what they were asking me to input (I suppose I could have done the same with the comments to read 'em, but that just seems silly). You have black text on an essentially black background (except for the few bits that show up against the sunset sky.) Don't know if anyone's already mentioned this, 'cause I can't read it... :-)

I'm on a Mac, using OS 10.3.5, with Safari as the browser.

ErinMH | October 5, 2004 12:10 PM

I'm with Steve Leigh on this one -- the sunset background doesn't work for the comments, no matter how great it looks on the main page. Can't read most of them.

Oh, and I'm running a Mac G4, OS 10.3.5, Safari.

Brian Greenberg | October 6, 2004 12:23 AM

Just making sure I can still jump in...
