What's that Strange Munching Sound?

Changed the font used for headings on the home page .. to Trebuchet MS, known for its modern, artsy style. (You like?) Before this, I was using Courier New, which seemed more computer techie-ish (which I also like).

Genghis KhanThis Font is Trebuchet MS

A better example of black text on white background can be found » HERE (VPS guide).

This Font is Courier New

Courier New is a mono-spaced font, which tends to consume more space (per character), forcing me to use shorter headings/titles (.. tho not necessarily a bad thing).

Regarding the text used on the home page, I still use Verdana, which can't be beat (I feel) for pure readability. Many times, I've tried to replace Verdana, but could never find another screen-font as easy to read.

Ye Olde Rad Blog II uses Trebuchet MS as its normal-text font. Not as readable, if you ask me.

On a more personal note, I am in the middle of "stuff." (Which is why I'm lagging on entries.) The kind of stuff you find wading thru a swamp infested with hungry crocodiles. (A particularly toothy one is chewing on my butt right now. Munch-munch.)

It will take a while to pry this thing off, but I'm confident it will (eventually) be dislodged. So if you don't hear from me for a while, you'll know I'm busy .. searching for a bigger crowbar.

In the meantime, I've been studying Photoshop .. learning how each tool works. Technology is far more enjoyable when you have insight into a program's inner-workings. And Photoshop is such a cool program. Included on most Top-10 lists.

I put away (for now) the 1,000-page PHP/MySQL book. Need more focus for that. Alligators proved distracting. (Hard to concentrate with all that chewing going on.)

Speaking of chewing .. movie I want to see » Mongol. The Untold Story of Genghis Khan. (Born 1162.) It's supposed to be historically accurate (cool), and contain lush cinematography (which I always appreciate).

When he was a boy, everything he loved was taken from him. When he became a man, he would take it all back. One day, he would rule the largest empire the world has ever known.

Directed by Russian (Sergei Bodrov). Haven't been to a theater in a while. Lotsa people talking about this flick. Critics complain it's filmed in Russia, not Mongolia, which is sandwiched between Russia and China. (So I doubt there's much difference.)

Strong reviews. (Academy Award Nominee, Best Foreign Film.) Trailer. Playing down at the Lido .. an old-style theater, with upstairs balcony.
