And as We All Know, It Is So Hard to Readjust a Font Size on a Computer

So if American voters have so turned against your party that even electronic vote tampering may not be enough to pull your fat out of the fire, what can you do?

Well, you could try setting up your electronic voting machines so that they’ll leave the party affiliations off the candidate’s names.

(Just be sure to blame it on something else, like nobody expecting in their wildest dreams that any of the candidates might have more than ten letters in their names.)

I mean, come on, some voting machine manufacturers slipped new (and secret) vote-tallying programs into their machines on the very day of the elections two years ago, but they can’t change a font size because two weeks isn’t enough time to do the reprogramming?

Construction Work

I haven’t posted anything in several weeks. Partly from being busy, but partly because I’m in the process of switching over to WordPress instead of MovableType as the software that drives this blog. I like some of the features WordPress offers, and maybe I’m also ready to change just for the hell of it.

So my blogging time lately has actually been spent lately in fixing up the style sheets and such for the new blog. Rather than write the files from scratch (does anyone write them from scratch?), I downloaded a “skin” that I liked the composition of, and have been revamping it. The new banner looks a lot like the old banner, and the color scheme of the blog is mostly the same, so the changes won’t be terribly striking.

It’s pretty nearly done, or at least I’m nearly satisfied enough with it to start putting it to use soon, maybe this weekend, knowing that I can still continue to tweak the colors and layout as I go. And knowing that however much I tweak, there’s going to be someone using a browser and/or settings that will screw up all my obsessive nitpicking anyway.
