The continuing adventures of Beau Yarbrough

Blog 2.0

Section: Miscellany

A month shy of three years later, I’ve updated the site’s look and feel. I believe that the Internet gurus (who will be happy to handle the service for a small fee) say that sites should be updated every 18 months. Obviously, I’ve got a ways to go there.

I looked at a number of “magazine style” themes for the blog, and the idea of having the front page display a grid of posts appealed to me, but they all took far too much work to adapt for a site with hundreds of posts already made. So I went with Conestoga Street instead, which still is nice and newspaper-flavored (at least now it is, anyway).

There’s a few quirks on this site I need to fix. The first one is that there’s no link to older posts on the front page or on archive pages. In the interim, use the search window to look for a specific post.

If you see any other glitches on the new site, please let me know here. And stay tuned for the 3.0 version of this site, coming in 2011.

(Oh, and if the name of this site confuses you, I explained it back in 2005.)


  1. What happened to all the color?!

  2. Color has left the site to pursue other career and educational opportunities and to spend more time with his family. We wish color all the best in his future endeavors.

  3. It looks great. I like it without colour. I like the minimalist newspaper look a lot.

  4. Another glitch: If you click on an individual story, and then do a search from there, it just searches that story. I need to get it to search the whole site, which is definitely outside of my personal area of expertise.

  5. I really like the picture you put up top. I’ll get used to the lack of color….
