If you look at the credits at the bottom of the site, you’ll see that the new PC is based on a WordPress template by Brian Gardner – I tinkered with it, layout wise, so anything you’re not happy with (ie the big grey space), that’s my call, not his design.
The one thing I wasn’t happy with was the big long list of archived months on the left side – given the lifespan of PC, that list was huge and only going to get huger. So, I went to the source, and asked Mr. Gardner for some advice. The result, as you can see, is a new Archives page. And it’s spiffy.
In return for his kind help, I donated to a run to raise money for breast cancer research – Brian and his wife have been doing it for several years. Personally, I’ve always made a point of supported breast cancer research, as it has hit close to home in my family.
PC has been running practically ad-free* for a long time, out of my own pocket. I’ve never needed donations or ads to maintain it – however, if any of you are so inclined, instead of supporting me (just reading regularly is all you need to do to support PC), please consider supporting Brian. All it takes is a measly five bucks to get involved.
I’ll sweeten the deal – anybody that contributes, I’ll send them some PC buttons at least (and maybe special swag, if I find any lying around). Just drop me a line when you’ve donated – either point me at your name in the scolling list of contributors or forward me a copy of your donation confirmation**.
And thanks to Brian for his help, thanks to you guys for hanging out, and thanks to everyone that pitches in.
* I ran ads once, for two months, way back when. It was a stupid system that netted me two bucks. So I dropped it.
** If you don’t have a credit card, or can’t use someone elses, like a parents (ask first kids) email me, maybe we can work out something manual, old-school, snail mail-y.
