      You say it like Christmas and snow was just in 1997 year. I think it’s important to change site a little bit according to season.

    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    CSS Beauty which is built on top of vanilla is the only tableless forum I know. CMIIW. Hard to find tableless forum on earth. Even drupal, the CMS I love, still relies on table for the topic listings, the way tabular data go, it’s just inevitable :) What is amazing, most traditional forum softwares rely 100% on tables and they still survive this far after all CSS rising.

    Hard to avoid table with tabular data, I guess. Anyway, content is the king, right?
