About a million little things

July 18, 2008

I have been slowly making small adjustments to this site’s theme locally on my computer for weeks.  Every now and then, as I’d find a bug or something that bugged me on the live site, I’d open Coda, make some adjustments, check them locally and save them for publishing later ((I’m a publish once and fix a ton of things kinda guy.)).

These changes are really, really small.  Unless you come to this site on a daily basis (you do, don’t you?) you may not notice any of them.  A pixel here, a color adjustment there, an array sorting issue here, a speed improvement there. But these changes were mounting up.  Even browsing my site myself, looking for old entries, I became annoyed with some of the existing bugs because I knew I had already fixed them on my local install.

So today, while I’m running out to spend the weekend in The Finger Lakes region of New York for a wine festival, I published these “little things” to the live site.  I wish there was a way I could calculate the changes (perhaps I should be using Subversion or something), but my guess would be somewhere in the hundreds.  I still have some things that I’d love to get around to adjusting, but they’ll have to wait for the next update.

So, if you’re feeling adventurous, go ahead and poke around.
