Tweaking Project Cerbera (24th December 2007)
Doing a little bit of pointless tidying up from time to time keeps this website feeling fresh to me.
Removed the Tagline
The tagline for Project Cerbera used to be this:
Mods, levels, cars, handling setups, editors and tutorials for the Grand Theft Auto (GTA) series.
The stuff I released for GTA is still available. I still get e-mails from people who have found it for the first time. Lots of things happen on Project Cerbera these days and the navigation list makes pretty clear what they are, so I’ve removed the tagline. It might come back if I think up something simple.
Default Search Colours
The Google site search allows custom colours using markup like this:
<input type="hidden" name="cof" value="GALT:#336666;GL:0;VLC:#882211;AH:left;BGC:#ffffff;LC:#882211;GFNT:#000000;ALC:#882211;T:#000000;GIMP:#000000;AWFID:ae27ead7684cc06f;">
It never offered enough control to tie in with Project Cerbera, so I’ve removed this.
The title for the blog index used to be this:
Blog of Ben ‘Cerbera’ Millard
It is now called The Life of Ben ‘Cerbera’ Millard.
About Me Box
A common and useful design pattern of other blogs is to have a tiny summary of the author and their blog in the sidebar. I now have one of these, saying this:
The Life of Ben ‘Cerbera’ Millard features web technologies, user interfaces, cycling and friends.
Each of these is a tiny thing. That’s what refinement is all about.
