New Design (?)

So, obviously, I'm trying a new design here.

Do you like it? Hate it? Page views are up sharply, but comments are down.

I kind of like it, but am not wedded to it. I'd appreciate any feedback.

Hmmm... I'm quite ambivalent. I like the individual article page but the front page - not so much.

The home page strikes me as fairly horrific. But maybe that's just me?

Might be easier to comment, but the front page is hard to navigate and I have to choose a view to make it easier. And there seems to be page bloat that is making Firefox sad.

Best,

Irritatingly, I couldn't find the "reply to post" button, so I think I'm replying to Dano.

I usually read your blog (like everyone else's) through google reader. So I only noticed any difference when I clicked through (which I usually don't, sorry. I assume people do the same to me).

I think its quite funky.

Oh, its at the bottom. But on my tiny laptop screen the "publish" button is hidden by the extra stories. Hmm.

I'd like it if I had a faster and more reliable Internet connection and no monthly bandwidth limit. The latter means that I usually block most scripts. Your new version requires several extra scripts to be enabled before you can see anything, but never mind. The weirdest thing is that you can't comment unless you allow scripts from facebook.com and fbcdn.net. Why would that be necessary?

Anyway. I like the look of it. Or I would if I were someone else.

The new design is horrible and I have to switch to "classic" to make it functionably readable at all.
