Welcome to the new look Fahrenheit211


It was time for a change at Fahrenheit Towers, so posting has been light over the last week, due to being busy with preparations for an upgrade to this site.

This new version of the site should have the capabilities for many more features than the last one.  Layout has been improved and there is an ongoing process of making things easier to find.

I’d like to thank ‘the ubiquitous librarian’ for their assistance in writing new categories for posts on here and advising on efficient information retrieval.

This upgrade is still ongoing, there are still older stories that are not properly formatted and categorised for the new layout and there are still a few ‘placeholders’ here and there.

Some items may still be liable to move to different places or change their names or categories.  If this happens, don’t panic, it’s not you, you’re not drunk or anything like that;  it’s just some technical adjustments going on.

Normal writing will be resumed soon.

      I know the other one was crisper and more text based, but I was being hampered by a lack of functionality and flexibility with the old design. The theme the blog was previously using was getting more and more technically clunky and unsuitable for things that need to be better highlighted such as video, social media etc. Placing adverts (yes this blog does need to be paid for) was also extremely difficult on the previous layout and it was a choice between finding a code monkey to fix up some workarounds for video, ads, audio etc, or go for a complete upgrade.

  2. You really need to change the font size so the whole name is on one line rather than the 2 being separated from the 11. Otherwise, it looks super – much more classy than it used to be.

      Thanks for that info. There’s going to be some issues with how the new design is resolved on different browsers. I’ll look into the numeral separation. If you don’t mind me asking what browser and what OS are you using?
