New layout thread

Sheesh. It's 5:15 in the morning. I've been working all night. Weird how such simple changes can take so long to get just exactly right.

Any other bloggers out there find template re-jigging is addictive?

Which is why there will be more changes on the way - but minor ones.

I'm also thinking about working in a weekly installment, ala Atrios' weekly cat blogging. Pics of Warsaw maybe?

It's still 860 px wide, so those of you (14% or so) reading this on an 800x600 screen have to scroll to see the full content, but at 800 the darn thing just looks too small. The question is: are sidebars getting stacked under the main content or vice-versa?

Nope, they look fine, but like you said I have to scroll over to see the right thread, but hey I have to do that at most blogs.

But there is also an about 200px black space out beyond the right sidebar, that is being cause by your title picture being pushed over to the right now that Warsaw and Station title graphics are side by side instead of being stacked on top of each other like they were before.

My monitor doesn't show these things, even though I preview it in different browsers. On my screen, the logo is stacked, as normal.

Hopefully the problem should be fixed now

Let me ask you something....because I use haloscan when someone goes to my blog (yes I know its not really a blog) they count as one hit (pageload), but when they open a haloscan thread that does not count on my sitemeter because the code only counts the front page.........but when you are using Blogger's built in Comments, and someone click on the comment button, which is also a permalink to that particular article, do you get another pageload hit?

What I am asking is say someone visits my blog and opens 10 different threads while they are there, I get 1 hit on the meter, but if someone did the same thing at a blogger comment blog would they get 11 hits out of it?
