Lone Cloud

Okay, so I decided to go with a larger overhaul than just the right hand column. The site probably looks a bit different than the last time you visited.I was starting to get a little tired of the old look and wanted something a little lighter. I got the idea for this theme from a mix CD that I put together recently. I made a cover for the CD from a photograph of a lonely cloud I took on a hike in the Sunol Regional Wilderness this past fall.The name “Invisible Elevators” came from the fact that the songs on the mix CD were mostly uplifting (though not necessarily in a traditional sense) and because they are songs, you hear them but don’t see them. The name described the cloud in that photograph, too. Somehow it was just suspended up in the sky by invisible forces. That’s all well and good for a collection of songs, but it doesn’t really translate to the web, as it is mostly visual. But I liked the name anyway and I’m sticking to it for now. 🙂

  1. Thanks, Dave! I’m still working on a few little tweaks here and there, but I’ve been pretty happy with it so far. I haven’t figured out yet, but I noticed a little banding in the header and background images on a friend’s laptop running Firefox on Windows this past weekend. I’m not sure why, as I previewed it on my own work laptop running the same software. We bumped up the number of colors on his display with no change. Oh, well.

  2. Hmmm, I noticed a slight banding on the backdrop too, but I put it down to the slight ghosting I get on the second head. I run a dual monitor setup at home, using a Matrox G400 at 32-bit colour, so I don’t think it’s my colour-depth.It could be a jpeg compression issue.
