Midnight Sun's new look

Dig the new 'do?

Midnight Sun got a makeover, a la Dining@Large and some of The Sun's other bloggys. Now that you're staring at the new Midnight Sun, I'll bet you don't remember what the old one looked like.

I do, and I like this one better. It's less cluttered, and my posts aren't being squeezed by sidebars. We're movin' up!

And moving left! (In terms of sidebars, not political viewpoint.)


i like how the darker font on after-hours scene makes you be all like, "what's in there? i don't know! it's darker lettering, which normally is a bad thing, but in this case i'm kinda intrigued!"

for realz though, it looks nice.

sweet, it doesn't render correctly in IE 6.0.

now if your sun webbie guys can make drop down list for the blogs on the home page...i don't like to work for my fun too much!

this is awful! The Sun should just leave well enough alone! It was fine the way it was! Now the type is too small! You should think of your older readers! Where's my Phantom comic?

(just wanted to be that "one" in every crowd! Looks kick @$$ dude!)

Don't know what version this browser is - prob'ly be bad form to call IT and ask, huh? - but I'm getting blank white space the length of the left-side (Baltimore Sun) sidebar and and then this blog. Several of the other blogs - although not D@L do the same.

For me it looks a lot better today than it did last night. IE7
Good job overall

Eve - hit F5 a couple of times or clear your browser cache. I got the same problem yesterday. (also IE7 is really really horrible for "new" blog templates use Firefox yall)


Anyway, bold, very clean and rather chic, but like chrome and glass, a touch cold.

That's why we need commenters like you, GDA -- to warm it up!
