Notice anything different?

You might be noticing as you read this that the color and layout of the website have changed completely. You might also recall my post from last week where I told people who wanted me to change the color and layout of my website to go jerk off a mule. After that posting, I received a number of emails from people who read the website, giving me lots of reasons why I should change it and that it wasn't all that difficult to do so.

I also got a request from a hearing impaired friend of mine, who said that my website format was not compatible with the equipment he uses to browse the net. This particular format apparently is. So there you go.

There were a number of problems with the previous layout, I was just too lazy to give a crap about changing them. Blogger has a number of very easy templates to use, but I like the website the way it was. And when you make the sort of changes that I made today, it applies them to all the archives, as well.

All previous comments have been erased, so if you could go back and re-comment on everything that you commented on in the past, that would be great.

I have said from the beginning that my point here is not to have a cool looking website. I'll leave that to all the people that win awards for their websites. I am more interested in content, which is also severely lacking, but I at least have the skills to work on that.

Okay, I'll bite. Why would hearing-imparied people need special web-browsing equipment for a website that has no audio component? I think the Midget is just jerking me around. Sight-impaired people, I'd get it. But it's like saying that people with no sense of smell need special web-browsing equipment.

Actually, you just plain bite. :) But I was wondering the same thing myself.

Here's the deal:

Some hearing-impaired people, particularly those with shit loads of hearing loss, use their cell phones for a variety of functions, including surfing the net, on adaptive equipment that can also be used for TTY or text messaging. I have a couple of people I know who use this technology and also like to read the website.

Ahhh, cell phone web browsers. Gotcha. So it really has nothing to do with hearing loss, but visibility.
