About this site's lack of design: Yes, it's supposed to look this way — I'm using a sandbox theme for WordPress (see it on GitHub).

Ephemera Rules

I know it’s not much, but for those of you arriving here via Zeldman.com I’d just like to say: “hey.”

Take a look around, kick the tires (this public-redesign is pretty tough when no one gives you feedback…) and let me know what you think, or what you find in the way of problems. Be aware that the deeper you delve into this site, the more inconsistencies you are likely to find…

Almost all my readers are coming from the link on Zeldman’s site today, and I’d certainly love to hear from some of you!

UPDATE: It was pointed out that the site was missing its archives, so for those who want to explore, I present to you: SuperfluousArchives

    I hope I’m not missing something… but,

    Other than using the search function, how does one view previous posts?

    Oftentimes I don’t have a clear purpose or search keyword in mind when I’m browsing, and just like to stumble onto an interesting topic (that might prompt a subsequent search).

    A ‘Previous’ button/link at the end of the page, or some sort of Archive link in your Internal sidebar would be nice.

    Regardless, everything looks wonderfully crisp, and I am enjoying the Purple Dream color scheme very much.

    Hi Arikawa, thanks for reminding me about the archives. I’ve been meaning to finish marking up the archive templates, and adding them to the sidebar, but it obviously became delayed :-)

    I’ll be finishing the redesigned versions soon — in the meantime, here’s a link to the original archive page: SuperfluousArchives

    I love the clean look to your design. It makes me want to go back and rethink my site, which is a work in progress. I know a design is good when it inspires me.

    Thanks for the kind words Carl, it’s wonderful to know that this design does more than just coat my site :-)

    Post your URL here, I’d love to take a look!
