Listen, a bunch of people went and got themselves some snazzy new templates/sites and I just could not bear the sight of my old one any longer.
I'm new! I'm hip!
I'm a tad bit on the boring side, but so was the old one! And I can only do so much spiffy-ing up in one night, people!
Overall, I'm pretty pleased with it, and I am proud of myself for figuring out the sidebar stuff.
Now, my template inadequacies are quelled for the time being.
*And lest anyone think I did this whole thing by myself, I didn't. I only figured out the sidebar stuff. The rest was just some cutting and pasting. No HTML wizardess over here.
