C'mon Justin, as a member of the digerati, don't you have some kind of responsibility for making your site work better - not worse - with Opera?

Right now, I'm forced to view it in user mode, which really doesn't do it justice.

If only your main page looked as good as your mobile pages. Simplify. Something you should also probably do with your life (shouldn't we all).

I use Mozilla normally, and IE once a month. I just downloaded Opera - we'll get to the bottom of this!

If anyone has any suggested fixes or design changes, I'm all ears! How can I fit all that information on the front page in a different layout? Maybe that's the point. I can't fit all that information on the front page. Humph!

Okay! I think I fixed the front page display problem in Opera. A misplaced /div!

I may not have solved the ugly/cluttered problem tho - if you have any ideas, post 'em up!

Thanks for your patience.

>How can I fit all that information on the front page?

There's a hint about the source of your ugly/cluttered problem.

Have you asked yourself WHY you need to fit all that information on the front page?

I prefer link access to the extra stuff. I find it more pleasing to the eye and less overwhelming to the brain. I have extras on my blog, one click and you can see them. It works for me.

BTW, nice article on you and Joi.

Woohoo! is Opera-enabled!

Thanks Justin.

This site is ugly as heck. But it's readable, in a chaotic kind of way.

I far prefer it to the pretentious "designer" sites with their tiny fonts, their illegible light gray on white backgrounds, the stupidly minimalist feel.

Justin, since you downloaded Opera, try Ctrl-G on unruly pages - voila! All the ugly colors and fonts gone, replaced with your choice of readable options. It's the perfect way to read the world's purple and orange color-themed blogs...

I'm not entirely sure I want to be reading your spastically-typed notes, as reported from your mobile device, in the heat of some conversation or other.

Processing is good, as is white space. Time to ponder, consider, reflect - what happened to all that zen game you were talking three months ago, my friend?

Are you on a quest to provide a never ending stream of real-time data to an already overloaded public? What's next, a live feed from you back molar?

ouch! ah! ooch! oo - stop that! don't!

- the feed from my right, bottom, rear molar - heat and cold beverage sensitive.

justin...your ADD is showing again.

Glad to see it opera friendly now.
I agree with Robin. Take time to think it through before presenting it and reduce the clutter.
But stay with the text based site with minimal graphics, its a nice change from all the flash you spend hours waiting to download these days.

Think of it this way: not everything you do (and you seem to do a great deal) is important enough to warrant being on the front page of your website. If you enjoy, you don't mind clicking on links...
