The End Of The Camels With Hammers Dark Ages

No new posts today as I have been and will be bogged down with preparations for the blog’s formal move to our new host.  There are a lot of things to take care of before tomorrow.

Tomorrow ends the “dark ages” at Camels With Hammers as we abandon our black and orange scheme entirely for something far brighter and cleaner and we simultaneously add some really great new features.  Looking over the posts in their new home and doing restoration work on them, I am extremely excited at how good they are shaping up to look.  It is something of a shame we did not have a design like our new one from the beginning.  But at least tomorrow we will!

See you at our new home (at the same address—no need to change your bookmarks) tomorrow!

    Great to hear you’re moving to the new scheme. The samples you posted of it on facebook look fine, and to be honest (and I mean no offense by this), the present scheme is kind of hard on the eyes.

    • Daniel Fincke

      Indeed, at long last I have overcome my stubbornness and accepted that I’ve been hurting the blog (by hurting the readers’ eyes!) by keeping it dark. No more.

  • Sean Baxter

    Great work Dan. I always thought your website needed a visual freshening up and I’m pleased to see the direction it is going!

  • George W.

    Are we gonna see a recent comments box??

    • Daniel Fincke

      Yep, it’s one of the things I’m most excited about. And it will be a really nice looking prominent, clean box. I’m really, really happy with everything you’ll see tomorrow!
