New Site Design

December 28th, 2008

The last few weeks I’ve been working on a much needed new design for UltraRob.com. I’ve started on it a few times in the past but never had the time to get it done. I got laid off from my job a few weeks ago so I’ve had more time. It’s hard to believe though the time I’m spending looking for a new job in the current recession.

The design still isn’t anything fancy but I think it’s a big improvement from the old one. I’d love to hear what you like and what you don’t.

The only change here on UltraRob’s Adventures until last night was the header. I worked on the new design on the blog last night until I ran out of brain cycles. I still have a bit of tweaking to do on it.

I changed the home page, about page, most of the photo pages and some other pages over the last couple weeks. I still have the cycling and outdoor gear pages, a few older photo pages and some miscellaneous pages to change to the new design.

How are the changes looking so far?

CycleCluster – Digg for Cyclists

July 30th, 2007

Today Fritz over at Cyclelicious posted about CycleCluster which looks pretty much like Digg but it’s just cycling related. It could become a cool way to get cycling news.

I added a CycleCluster submit link to the bottom of my posts. While I was at it I also added links to Digg, StumpleUpon and Del.icio.us.

I Couldn’t Take It Any More

July 26th, 2007

I just couldn’t take my blog template any more. I haven’t liked it for a long time and the last few days it has been really bugging me. A while ago I had started doing a complete redesign including layout. It was just taking too long to get the layout right in IE and in Firefox. I also was thinking I was moving to the new Blogger Layouts but discovered they aren’t supported when you do your own hosting.

At least with changing the colors it looks more like the rest of my website and I like the look better. You may disagree and that’s fine. You are welcome to tell me how you’d like and I may consider doing it.

It’s simple without any 3D graphics to give cool borders, etc. In some cases I do like them and may add a few but I do like simple in web design. Maybe that’s why some corporate branding person has to help get our apps to look they way they want them.

Let me know if you see something that looks funny or doesn’t display correctly. I’ve done a quick glance on several pages but I’m falling asleep so I’m calling it a night.
