It’s Orange!!!!

As you can see, after more than a year I’ve finally redesigned this here blog. It’s a kind of retro-y thing and I like it. I’m sure a few won’t like the color scheme though, especially for reading long posts so you’ll see that just below the left navigation there is a “I don’t like orange!” link, just click that to activate a green theme that’s easier to read, it sets the theme in a cookie so if you come here with any kind of regularity, you shouldn’t have to set it again.

So, comments?

[Update] Forgot to say, for those who like such things, make the font bigger and see how the layout expands with the text. Even the borders size in proportion to the font size. It’s EMs all the way down baby!

(Still some crap to fix with the piece of shit that is IE 6, I’ll see when I can get to it. Upgrade for god’s sake)

OMG! I’m blind!

Are you sponsored by Orange Julep or Orangina and you are not telling us.
Not sure this will last a long time… but good stunt by the way..

vanou October 6, 2008

Yeah, that’s REALLY orange!

Daniel Haran October 6, 2008

I prefer the green, although I mostly read you via RSS.

As for IE6… I recommend procrastination. How many people visiting your blog are still using that POS anyways?

Michael October 6, 2008

Great work! Very orange, yes it’s true. But lots of great touches in the layout.

julien October 7, 2008

everything is nice except for the color. that’s the nicest way i can put it. :P

So…you’re supporting the NDP this election?

I dig the new orange. And the new font/logo for i never knew. For some reason, this all looks like a vinyl LP dust jacket. I guess it’s partly that retro feel.

Em designed: J’regardais justement ça hier soir!

Nice stuff!

La Flamme Rouge October 8, 2008

Retro look, y’a pas à dire… je ne suis pas sûr que ca conviendrait à LFR cependant !

Comme disent les Français, fallait oser!

Jean-François Renaud October 8, 2008

J’ai mal aux yeux ! (pour vrai)

Patrick October 8, 2008

P’tite nature, switch à vert :-p

Alexandre October 8, 2008

To be perfectly honest, it’s the first time I see something that painful to look at since ca. 1995. Sorry!
The design itself is interesting, for those who care about such things. But the colour really doesn’t work for me.

Patrick October 9, 2008

Just in case : you did all read that you can switch to green right?

edemay October 9, 2008

y’en a plus de monde que j’pensais qui sont fait en chocolat.

Fagstein October 11, 2008

I don’t mind orange in theory, but maybe it can be a bit less deep – FF8F66 maybe? Or FF7033?

Seb October 16, 2008

Maybe slap on a popup color palette and everyone can choose their favorite color?

BTW, this here comment box retains the orangeness while being easier on the eyes.

BTW, what font are you using for your body text? It looks just fine on M.’s Mac, but it looks like ass over on this here windas.

Blork October 19, 2008

Oh wait, I see it’s Helvetica. But I’ve got Helvetica. But maybe it’s some kind of ass Helvetica.

Patrick October 19, 2008

Yes, Helvetica. It sometimes looks like ass on Windose but I’m not using Arial because Redmontians can’t render Helvetica properly ;)

Cool layout! Ça fait du bien de rafraîchir de temps en temps…
