I’m past all of the technical hurdles in building my new server for this site, getting bandwidth adjusted, migrating the database (which will now include real-time replication to another machine), tweaking the template, etc. I still have a few things to do – like merging my customizations of the WordPress PHP from the old site to the new one – but generally, I am close to done.
But since I have a big weekend planned, and then a big US Holiday week of over-indulging in just about everything next week, I may not finish it tomorrow. So just in case I don’t, below is a screen shot – and yes, it is very green.
I chose green specifically to serve as a reminder to me to post more renewable energy stories. I am not a “tree-hugger”, and I’m not out to “save the world”. I am out to save some money though – so I’ve spent a lot of time studying ways to save, and even create energy. This site won’t become a site about energy conservation, but I do plan on spending more time sharing with you what I’ve learned. So the “green theme” is meant to remind me of that.
Love it or hate it, here’s what it is. I’m sure I’ll change it again in a few months or so – so if you hate it, don’t fear.

I don’t know where the basic theme came from – I found it in a Zip File with about 180 themes in it – none of them attributed. If you know who created it, I’ll happily give them credit (I did do a lot of modifications to it – but it started out as someone else’s work).
