I really like the default theme. I like that the sidebar can be collapsed, I like the colours but most of all I love the font and font size. It’s as perfect as I’ve seen on any theme anywhere. Octopress.

I am sure Google have bandwidth issues at Youtube. It used to be the case that I could load a video and if it was doing so slowly I could pause it. The loading would continue and I could then watch the whole video. But now when you hit Pause loading completely stops.

Very nearly bought a theme last night. The site has a 30 day money back, you get a heap of themes and it’s only $30. Reason I didn’t?
