a terrible blight on our fine country

Yes, things are different around here. I've finally moved to the new Blogger. This brings with it some neat features:
- Functional archives that don't take up epic amounts of space.
- Convenient feed integration.
- The ability to list all the labels I've started using (and badly need to organize).
The new template I'm using has some other features I may or may not get around to deploying.
You'll note a second sidebar. It was necessary to cram in the other stuff I want to get up and going. At the moment you'll find my last five Fanhouse posts plus something I'm calling "mgo.licio.us," which is basically a constantly updated list of things I come across that may be of relevance to Michigan fans with some brief commentary. Some of these things will end up in UV, but some may not -- there's always a bunch of stuff that gets buried and then is no longer timely. Hopefully this will put a stop to that. I also plan to create a similar widget that highlights recent comments of interest.
In the totally cosmetic department, there are now nice rounded headers and footers on all posts. These employ the transparency features available in Firefox, IE7, Opera, and Safari and are broken on IE6... but how broken I don't know because I haven't figured out how to test IE6 on this machine that already has IE7. So, if you're one of the approximately 35% of people still rocking IE6, please inform me if the resulting breakage is unreadable or unattractive and I'll get on it.
There's a bunch of broken crap. Working on it. It's really late. So I'm working on it later.
I also liked the yellow highlighted boxes around quoteblocks.
Hooray blogger comments, boo word verification, though it will probably significantly delay SoJ from posting.
Looks great, too.
ps. i hate times new roman. arial? verdana? any random sans serif? please?
Anyway, I also have issue with the font, whether too small or not the right one, I don't know.
Overall, new look: A+.
Help! I am afraid of things which are new!
I think the layout is well, kind of ugly. A little too busy perhaps. Also the asymmetry between left and right is unsettling.
I liked the yellow quote boxes, you should bring those back.
(I had to do verification twice also. This is probably not your fault.)
Also, I detest Blogger's native comment system. Haloscan is so much better.
Oh, and here's another vote in favor of yellow comment boxes.
Also, if you're still looking to fix transparency issues with IE6, what if you just used HTML if statements with the CSS?
That's what I do on my site -- but you're the computer engineer, not me.
