It’s done. At least it’s done enough to work. The design’s not quite what I had in mind from the get-go, but it works well enough for me. (This isn’t to say that it works on Internet Explorer, but, fact of the matter is, it’s almost a miracle that anything does.)
I tried to layout the site, but failed today. Maybe will bring a little more success (though I realized I do like the colors looking like dried blood on a white bed sheet today).
