An unexpected consequence

So, as I mentioned yesterday, I moved my archives over from Blogspot and have settled in. It's nice to have them all in one place. One thing is that they are easier to read here and easier to organize. Although, my wife does not care for the font this template/style sheet came with. Out of curiosity, is she alone on that? Anyone else dislike it?

So, the unexpected consequence of the archive move is that some brave souls are re-reading my older stuff. Older sounds more important, you see, than saying the posts from the last 90 days. And there have been a couple of comments, which is nice because I have not yet figured out how or even if I can import the Haloscan comments that went along with these original posts. Anyone ever try to do that?

It's as if the older posts have been given a new life. And I think that's kind of nice.

I didn't have Comments at blogspot when I moved, so, beats me if there's a way to import them but I'll bet there is.

I don't mind the font at all (it's easy to read), but you might want to spruce up the color and add a banner and stuff.

If y'need it, just ask for some assistance over at Munuviana. We've got plenty of Munuvians who'll be happy to turn a sparce template into a thing of beauty.
Really... Madfish just lives for this stuff!

Unfortunately you can't move the Haloscan comments. The template is a basic one but you can get a quick image boost by slapping in a new one. Check the sidebar at Munuviana for links to a bunch of free templates.

(If you put one in, don't forget to edit in the collapsing list formatting.)

Congratulations on your move RP, and good luck.
Template is fine by me . . . substance is everything!
Good luck again,

Thanks for all the replies. My wife thinks you're all wrong about the font. She told me so it must be true (remember, I have to sleep with her so if you think this comment is written under threat or duress, you'd be totally wrong).

Pity about the comments, but that's life.

Thanks for the suggestions about the various templates and stuff! I intend to do something about it, although, I am not put off by this very clean look Pixy gave me.

This is really a crazy world. How can anybody understand all this crazy stuff
all around? It’s so meaningless, but in one way it’s fantastic!
