I’ve been meaning to update the design on my blog for quite a while now, and I finally got around to doing it. I felt like the old design was a little too severe with all that harsh black and white. This new version is a little softer, has better fonts, and is better optimized for devices like the iPhone and iPad. This also gave me a chance to rip out a bunch of the WordPress junk, like comments and categories, that I don’t really use.
To go along with the new look, the blog has a new name. A few months ago a friend of mine posted on Facebook something along the lines of “It’s 10 minutes to midnight, and I’m just now eating dinner!” The line “minutes to midnight” jumped out at me immediately. My first reaction was, naturally, “That would be a great name for a band!” Since it’s unlikely I’ll ever be in a band, the next best thing was to use it as a name for the blog.
So, to sum up: new look, new name, everything else stays pretty much the same.
