Theme Problems

I have have the new theme working on IE/Mac. If it's working on the old Mac version, I can only assume the latest PC version would render it fine.

If you don't see the user login block, scroll down to the bottom of the page.

The user login block is now located on the right. It's size was apparently breaking the theme, but this isn't an issue on the right side. All the world loves a workaround!

I've looked at the site in IE/Mac, Safari, Firefox, Camino and the whitespace/left column dropping issue is gone.

I created this new thread to report any theme problems you're experiencing with the theme. Just leave a comment with what's going on and the browser and version you're using, as well as whether you're on xp, osx, linux, etc.

Tendonitis be damned!

My hands & wrists continue to limp along (get it? limp-wristed?), so the other day I stopped by Michael's and bought a Knifty Knitter round loom set (all 4 sizes on sale for $10). Basic stuff, but I figured out how to knit & purl. The day my hands went verkacht, I had bought some Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick to make scarves for the Bundle Up New Orleans project. Since my hands weren't cooperating, I tried it on the knitting machine, but the yarn is just too bulky, even on every third needle. So the looms seemed to be the logical choice and are working okay, though I'm not trying to be fast, in order to spare my hands.
