Ok – settled on a template finally and am working on some tweaks. Not that this site has a ton of traffic at the moment but in case you are dropping by, stay tuned – I hope to have it roughed into shape this week.
Well, despite some success with my Django-based blog, I just do not know enough code to keep it running smoothly. So, for the time being I am moving over to WordPress. Hope to spend some time finding and/or customizing a theme, but this should work for now.
