Brand new me

Oooh, look! I've changed ...

After nearly 4 years on the blog, I've finally got a brand spanking new look.

I need to tinker a bit, update the links etc, but whaddya reckon?

Forward to the future. Yeehah!

Seems every silver lining has cloud tho - I've lost my site meters and most of my links embedded in posts.

Anyone know a way round the obvious laborious route of going back and inserting them all? (Several hours work, I'd guess ...
