New Header - So Difficult it Looks Easy.

Yep, you probably noticed the new header.

Just to diminish my geek credibility, with my knowledge of HTML, that actually took me close to an hour to get placed right.

If you look at the logo, it's nice and simple. Have you any idea how hard it is to get something to look that simple and not look like ass?

Well, you're looking at is only about 10 minutes work in photoshop, but to get that look, you need a downloaded custom font, 5 different layer style effects, a gradient mesh and a rendered lighting effect.

Why am I telling you this? I have no idea.

Cool new header! It doesn't seem to go with the rest of the template though - is this part of an overall redesign?

Not that I can talk - I did no work at all and just dropped in someone else's template code.

I totally agree: It's almost impossible to make something simple and not look like ass. For instance, I was trying to use this picture of my butt for my header, and it kept coming out looking like an ass. After a few tries I realized that if I drew on googly eyes and wedged a carrot between my cheeks, it looked a bit like Nixon. What were we taking about again?
