Blog maintenance: Sidebar updated

If you’re following the blog in a feed reader, you won’t have noticed this, but I just updated the right rail of the site so the blog has a two-column design instead of a three-column design. There was a lot of stuff over there and it was looking awfully cluttered to me, so I’ve changed it to look a lot cleaner. Hopefully it’s also easier to read and use. If anyone runs into any problems with the new design, please comment on this entry with your browser and platform (i.e. Internet Exploder 7 on Windows XP). If you find anything hard to read or use, feel free to comment too.

However, if you’re running Internet Explorer 6, please don’t bother to comment at all, just upgrade already. You can get Microsoft to send you a CD for free (UPDATE: I’ve been informed it actually costs $5. Sorry!). I won’t bore you with the details why, but IE 6 is a piece of crap that has wasted literally millions of man hours around the world. Please, do it for the sanity of all web designers across the Internets.

Hey! Nice design–you’re right, it’s a lot easier on the eyes (and brain) now.

Hey, don’t fault us if our employers make us use old IE! :) Another good reason I use a reader most times… I am smart enough for Firefox at home at least.

I like the new sidebar – clean and simple. And I agree whole-heartedly about IE6. Many many hours of my life have been wasted trying to accommodate that buggy browser. It just shouldn’t exist anymore. Or ever.

How do you get the IE Explorer CD for free? When I click on that link, and enter USA as my country, it tells me that there’s a $5 charge for the upgrade CD.

@Tina – I’m sorry, I thought they sent it for free. I apologize for the bad information.
