Wordpress theme for hashbang.ca

In the past month, a number of people have asked about the theme for this blog. I was particularly flattered that someone even asked where I bought it. It is just a customized version of Joey Robinson’s Minimalist theme. My aim was to keep the same design principles – fast-loading, minimalism, readability – but update it to have a more modern look. One major goal was to have a truly great font via @font-face on modern browsers, so I used the Junction font from The League of Movable Type.

OMG, is that WordPress?!

I’m a Perl guy. I like the language a lot – how it looks, how it works… Even if it isn’t perfect, I like it a lot. But I also love things that work, and Wordpress works.
