You might notice that the look of the graduate student blog has changed. Why has it changed? Simply put, I think the last theme, though attractive, was a bit more difficult to read and navigate. The starker contrast between black text on white background (as compared to black on brown) should make it a bit easier to read.
And, on that note, I would like to point out that this blog has now surpassed the 1,000 view mark. Happy millenium, blog! Unfortunately, though many are reading the blog it seems that many are partaking passively. I would like to again remind everyone to sign up for an account (see “getting started” link at the top of the page), create their user page (come to me if you need help) and enjoy the joyness of blog.
