Too much of a good thing is wonderful
"Women with 'pasts' interest men because men hope that history will repeat itself."
- Mae West

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas! As much as I hate to say goodbye to Santa Mikey, he's back at the north pole resting up for next year. So enter...Mae West! Thus far I've only noticed the skin acting funky in Netscape 4.7, so if you're on that browser still, well you pretty much deserve what you get. If anyone else has any issues with it please let me know (as it's now also the default skin, replacing Gwen). And 800x600 users will need to choose this slightly scaled down version to prevent scroll. As always, if you don't like the view head on over to the skins page and reset it.

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

I love the colors in the new skin, they're great! The only problem I noticed is the images at the top, when I mouse over them, it doesn't show another image. It shows an image placeholder... :-\ I'm using IE6.

Works aok for me w/ IE6. In preview mode, the mouseover was broken, but when it's live, it's perfect!

Great work again, Robyn.

Very, very nice. I'm using the 800x600 version (Gotta keep my resolution there as I get stuck programming for 60 year old women a lot). For me it's just one click away from not scrolling. I wouldn't waste any time fixing it though. It's good enough to bump Christina off my screen for a while.

Aha. Lisa is right. I didn't put it in regular mode, as the mouseovers were wiggy... and... well... Mr. Maguire is a hottie. Anyway, in regular mode, the mouseovers work. So it's just preview that it's weird. :)

Has anyone else noticed how much that looks like Sarah Jessica Parker?

... Or is it just me?

Bill -- ya' gotta read a bit better. This entry links the 800x600 version as well. ;-)

And I tested the rollovers on IE 5.5 and 6.0 (and Mozilla and IE on our Mac). They worked, but not as cleanly as I'd like -- so I'll probably retweak with new code again this afternoon. At 2 a.m. it was time to say, "Eh - screw it!" though. Thanks for the heads-up!

Ok...for some reason it's all copacetic now, though I swear I clicked on the "slightly scaled down" link. I swear. Really.

I love the new look, but my poor cell phone web browser that I use when the MAN is trying to keep me down won't like it at all! It does much better with sidebars on the right thanks to how it loads text. I'd use the stripped html page, but I can't comment from there! (I can leave comments from the phone, short & sweet!)

But this baby looks GREAT on my PC!

Love the new look, but Gwen is my favorite, hands down (although you DO have an awesome collection of skins I plan to plagarise when I make some for my site :)
