Well I've got to the stage where I can change the header but I want to learn much more about WordPress and Content Management Systems in general.
So at the moment I've got a bit of a 'quick and dirty' design up. The header isn't quite how I want it (a bit truncated and I don't think I want the black bar at the top). But good enough.
I guess I should warn you that every now and again I'll put something like this up. The main aim is to write a blog about all the stuff that interests me and unfortunately the design of the blog itself interests me even though it's thoroughly boring to everyone else.
