Where Did The Articles Go?
I doubt this is causing much of a stir, but given my schedule and other commitments I don't really have the time to scratch out regular articles or blog posts. Besides, there's already enough of those types of blogs out there already.
Twitter This And Twitter That.
My new Twit-handle is going to be @pixelomatic. Hope to see you there.
A small collection of very simple WordPress template frames that can be easily customized and adpated to suit your needs. They're built for WordPress 2.7 or later and set up to use widgets in multiple locations.
CSST Simple Blue
Basic, three column design with a touch of light blue flavoring.
CSST Simple Orange
Another three column design but with the "heavy" column to the left and the other two narrow columns on the right. If orange is your thing, check it out.
CSST Simple Red
To be totally honest, this one looks a hell of a lot like Simple Orange but with a cherry flavor though.
Installing A Template
To install one of these WordPress templates:
1. Download the archive and extract the folder containing all of the files.
2. Using an FTP client to access your host web server, upload the theme to the wp-content/themes directory in WordPress.
3. Select the new theme in the Apperance > Themes admin screen.
As with any WordPress template, you'll more than likely need to adjust the styles a bit to mesh with your current settings.
(NOTE: Web geek tested and approved in Firefox 3.0 (Win), Firefox 2.0 (Mac), IE7 (Win), Opera 9.6 (Win), Safari 3.2 (Mac). IE6 can go to hell.)
Here you'll find fixed-width templates that will remain at their given horizontal size regardless of how large the viewer's browser window is.
These here templates are the flexible or fluid kind. They will re-size horizontally to match the viewer's browser window.

Open Source Templates With Some Frills
This group of templates have a bit more styles applied to them. I originally submitted these to either OSWD or OpenDesign.org and I'm offering them here as well.
