Not quite as bad as the Digg or Delicious redesigns.

Well! This comments redesign of LJ's is kinda cool, in that analyzing its design mistakes will be an interesting exercise. They are legion, for it was an amateurish job. I think I shall do this later today because I am as always eagerly seeking new means of procrastination.

In the meantime, I expect Dreamwidth is doing a boom business today. They probably feel like the Pinboard guy does when the Delicious people roll out a new thing: woohoo it's Christmas!

Music choice is ironic commentary.

Hmm, the custom comment design for the layout I'm using right now is pretty sucky. I think I'm going to spend some time today mangling the CSS until I get a layout that has the information design I want. Compact, all information present, all expand/parent/etc buttons present. Then I'll post the CSS/layout I'm using.

This should be possible without having to wrestle with the S2 style system, which isn't very good. (I have done that in the past.) Will find out as I go. ... [edit] Though other people appear to have this already in progress, so maybe laziness will win!

But for now, I'm off to go do my max-effort squats and deadlifts workout. Oof. Let's see if I can rack pull 350lbs today!

EDIT: Didn't rack pull, instead deadlifted up to 290. Also, rack good mornings up to 275. Which was definitely an ooooooof moment. That is not a back exercise, by the way. That hits your hamstrings hard, glutes secondarily. If you're doing it right. Also, made custom-style comments less sucky. They're not great yet.
