This is actually just a short post to warn you that there will be a pretty major overhaul to the site in the near future. The majority of this will consist of a redesign to improve readability, as well as making the site play nicer with mobile browsers, specifically Opera Mobile and WebKit. I may add a few new features as well, such as a few different media types. Right now the site has clear demarcations for browsing the different types of media, although I am considering also enabling a more tumblelog-like experience. Right now, you can get the tumblelog interface in the primary feed for this site, but I’m going to present a way of getting that experience on the site itself.

I also have a few other surprises in the works that I’m not ready to talk about yet, but they should be pretty cool.

Stay tuned.

I had to respectfully withdraw from the TTLB Ecosystem because the JavaScript required, which updates my status on it, was causing serious drag at load time for the blog. I no longer shall fight for my meat in that food chain, so the infuriating white screen while you wait for the Ministry to retrieve content shouldn’t happen anymore.
