I'm an addict.
A redesign addict, that is. What else would explain me being up at two in the morning hacking away at yet another redesign of snook.ca?
Once again, I was able to pull off the redesign without having to touch the original files. Ala the CSS Zen Garden, I just dropped in the new stylesheet and I was off to the races.
 Okay, that's a small lie. I took out a hyphen and added a line break in the comments area.
With this iteration, I wanted to have a design that integrated well with the fixed comment form. I feel like I accomplished that. The comment form in the old design was simply a hack as a proof of concept. I made the form smaller so it should be less of an issue for people at lower resolutions. On the downside, those at higher resolutions may now found the comment form sitting somewhat higher than might be comfortable.
The biggest problem with the comments form is that in Firefox, the cursor position is too far to the left (at least on my machine). I'll have to resolve this issue in the near future as I suspect that'
The comments themselves turned out surprisingly well. Somewhat inspired by Subtraction and its variations.
As always, this site is in constant flux so don't be surprised if things seem just a little different the next time you visit.
Update: I fixed the cursor issue in Firefox. I tried to use a negative margin to have the arrow pull to the right. To fix, I start the
div further to the left and then used positive margin to push everything else back in. Negative margins = bad!
Also, I wanted to say thank you for all the kind comments. Both on the redesign and on the fixed comments.
