The Spoony Blog gets a facelift

June 14, 2009

I’m lazy. I’m also not a web programmer. Put 2 and 2 together, and you’ll infer that I have very little motivation to stylize this blog. But as both regular readers of this blog have probably figured out by now, I’ve gotten off my lazy ass and given this blog a new theme.

I recently stumbled across Charles Nicholson’s blog, liked the theme, and decided to shamelessly steal^H^H^H^H^H copy it. In adding the new theme, I’ve put in a few more tweaks as well. I updated to the latest WordPress version (currently 2.8.0), which has a much nicer dashboard. I threw away the useless calendar widget on the sidebar, and I’m now working on beautifying <code> tags.

Next up is installing a snazzy syntax highlighter. I really like the look of the Google syntax highlighter (also shamelessly stolen from Charles Nicholson), so I’m going to go with that. When I’m done with that, the following code snippet should be a little more than just monospaced text in the same color and style as regular text.

#include <stdio.h>

int main(int argc, char **argv)
    printf("Hello, world!\n");
    return 0;

Edit: Success!
