DIG-B Update

Apologies for the lack of content recently. Things have been a little busy for me and I haven't had a chance to get out and take pictures for a while. I've also been working on a couple small but significant tweaks to the layout of DIG-B that I would like to finish up before I make any new photo posts.

The primary difference will be changing the width of the main column where posts are displayed. Since DIG-B has morphed into a very photo-centric blog, I feel that it's important to be able to display larger images. As a result, I'll be able to show pictures that are about 50% wider (and 50% taller -- for the geeks out there that results in images with 2.25 times as much area).

You may have also noticed that my pictures currently get displayed with jagged lines and other strange effects (also called aliasing). I'm tweaking the way images are displayed so that the blog will display alias-free images with 640 pixel width and you can click on the image for a version with 1024 pixel width. If that's too technical for you, just know that things will look a hell of a lot better and if you're on a slow connection, things should also load noticeably faster. I should be done with all the tweaks I'm working on sometime this week.

You'll have to let me know how you change things. I'm still looking at minor tweaks on mine and always interested in fresh perpsective.

This test template is pretty much what I'm going to drop over here tomorrow or Wednesday:

Most of the stuff is surprisingly easy to do. Just let me know if there are elements you like and I can let you know what I found about how to do them.

Have you considered posting pictures of the old Winona Memorial Hospital building at 32nd and Meridian? Interesting history behind that building.
