New look Suburbia!
Just a quick post to announce that I've finally had a chance to do a bit of work on Suburbia's design. I've actually gone for a bit of colour this time! I've also used it as an opportunity to include some photographs in the form of a randomly loading image whenever you view a page. The photos are a mixture of some taken by myself, Annie and also other people (well, at least some by Colin anyway!).
One word of warning, as of the time of publishing I haven't tested this on any browsers apart from Safari, Firefox and Camino on Mac OSX, so if it looks funky on Internet Explorer 6 on PC then you'll have to wait until I get a chance to test it and fix any problems.
I've also been doing a lot of work behind the scenes too with the actual code of the site, basically improving it and optimising how it works. Also you may notice a change in the format of the links for blog entries on the site, I've basically made it a bit friendlier than the old "?entry=20061020211436" format that the site used to use. Fortunately the old format still works so any links to pages will still work just as before.
So, any problems, comments etc then feel free to post them in the comments!
EDIT: The site has been redesigned again since this post!

What resolution is this site up for dude?
It's difficult to read the left and right text as it's on top of the bg pic. And the right text is on the desk next to me...

Loving the pictures!!
Agree with big bro...difficult to read left and right text.
Also (minor) it would be better if the page was smaller so that you don't need to scroll right or left.

Yep, I'm going to do something about it I just haven't had a moment to do it!

Ok, made a few changes to the background, it's lighter and I've also cropped it down a bit, should be a lot easier to read now!
