Oswald.us has undergone a minimally invasive overhaul. A while back, I upgraded to WordPress 2.0, and today I’ve implemented a couple of WordPress Widgets. Specifically, menubar on the right is now “widget-powered”. The first useful widget I’ve added is the calendar. The calendar not only shows standard calendar junk – days and stuff – it also highlights the days that something was posted. Hover your mouse over a highlighted date for a second, and it’ll give you a popup of the titles of the posts for that day. Slick, huh?
A casualty of this process was the theme (“Almost Spring 1.2”) that I was running. Poor little monkey wasn’t widget compatible. So I bolted on a new theme – the wordpress default one – and here we are. The default one is actually pretty good… maintains the plain, spartan, protestant look that I seem to like. Have you seen my wardrobe? It’s downright puritanical.
