Header is now sorted to my satisfaction. For those of you who have an interest in such things, the people and things represented are below the cut ) I have also buggered about with the CSS a bit in order to get rid of the HUGE gap between entries, and make it a more pleasingly svelte gap The problem now is that the text of entries/comments doesn't wrap around the icon. Mat's proposed solution to this was increasing the size of the entry header, which would push the entry text down below the icon, so we tried it, but the method he suggested (increase header font size) seems to be disabled by something else. We've put in
.entry-content, .comment-content {
padding-top: 30px;
as a bodge, but it's not satisfying to me. I'd like to wrap if I can. Any ideas, oh CSS gurus in my readership?

I has a header!

It's a bit rough around the edges, but I'll tidy it up a bit at some point in the future. It'll do for now. Have done much tidying up and playing. I am happy now. Sorry [livejournal.com profile] nannyo though. I feel a bit guilty for pinching YOUR picture of Nanny Ogg...

I also did a meme, with oddly appropriate results, given the centre image:
Which Discworld Character are you?
Gytha (Nanny) Ogg
The Librarian
Commander Sir Samuel Vimes
Lord Havelock Vetinari
Carrot Ironfounderson
Esmerelda (Granny) Weatherwax
Cohen The Barbarian

Strangely it's Nanny's picture I am least happy with. I like her holding the pint, but the image is fuzzy and too small, yet if I crop it bigger, she covers too much of Brian and Vincent... Perhaps I should play with it some more when it's not a quarter to two in the morning... I did, and now I am happy. YAY!

Header Bar.

Right, my task for monday is going to be to make myself a nice header bar for the new blog. There are many things I would want to reference, and I have some ideas as to style and content, but I wondered what images you guys would suggest I include?

Please leave a comment with your suggestions for images that you think epitomise me.

... Changing over all my internet profiles from the Gob to here. I have a LOT of profiles. Lordy. Anyhoo, what I would like you guys to do is keep an eye out, and if you spot somewhere linking to the Gob instead of here, let the person linking know to change it, or leave me a comment and I will nag them.

Also, the problem some of you were having with openID shouldn't be a problem any more. And I have allowed anonymous commenting for those of you who can't be bothered logging in with openID at all.

I have also been doing some graphics stuff. I took a break from the deadly serious and top sekrit graphics thing to make the icon you see on this post. Because you can never have too much Brian.

Back to the grindstone, I guess.
