This recent design was driving me a bit batty. Generally, I love it. But with this sudden urge to write longer pieces again, I’ve been _hating_ the narrow text column.
With a few keystrokes, I’ve converted it from a very narrow 300px to a much more reasonable 50%. For the non web geeks out there, this means that the text column will now resize as you make your browser wider or narrower. Don’t make it too narrow though, or the sidebar will drop to the bottom (yes, I know I could fix it…)
