- Out of dismay over a blogsite so bereft of artistic design value?
- Out of compassion for the elderly, infirm, and techie-challenged?
- Out of boredom one "nothing-better-to-do" afternoon at Tsukuba -- with cherryblossoms yet to bloom, Nippongo exams a month over, and doctoral dissertation still a year away?
- (Simply) Out of goodness of heart?
- (Simply) As a way of saying: "What are blog buddies for?"
Whatever his reason, Dimaks of Ctl + Alt + Delete did the incredible : Design, without being asked, an exquisitely customized theme graphic for ode2old!
It was everything I wanted the theme to be -- the title bannered over a magnificent sunset, setting off the best of light and dark. The yellows and golds do not dazzle, the blacks and grays do not forebode. It is a graphic expression of: "the day is done, long live the night!"
How he knew exactly what to do -- I will let him perhaps blog about. (ha ha)
The good news is Dimaks answered, when I worried he might be deluged with header-customization requests after this gets published: "No problem."
The line forms to the left, buddies! Hey, no more freebies now. Dimaks got himself a manager. And she doesn't only like sunsets but also $$$. $eriou$ :)
