Let Us Give Thanks For Once-Every-Five-Years Or So Redesigns

Those of you who get your Just Well Mixed on via a feed reader probably haven’t noticed, but I’ve done some surgery on the templates for this site.  It’s not really a total redesign as many of the basic design elements have remained the same, but I’ve tried to clear out some of the cruft that has accumulated over nearly six years of blogging here. I’ve also implemented some best practices (things like making the title of an item be a permalink for it) that have emerged since the Wild West days of 2002, which was the last time I put any serious thought into the design of JWM.

Right now the new layout is only deployed on the home page and some miscellaneous pages, but you should see it roll out across all the archive pages soon.

Whaddaya think, improvement or not?
