First thing on my list of crap I want to be able to do here – edit CSS. I know I can do it (for cheap) already, but I think I need to keep a running list so I can add it all up in the final analysis. It’s also not because I’m the kind of guy who chews code for breakfast. It’s just that I’m not happy with the default width of this theme (it doesn’t even fill the width of the laptop, which is enslaved to 1024 x 768).
Why yes – now that you mention it, I could just change the theme. And you’re right – I could. But that’s beside the point. I like this theme (far better than any of the others I’ve seen) except for a couple of minor tweaks I’d like to make. I mean, really – changing the code just to increase the width of the document body is a ridiculously minor tweak. I don’t think it’s too much to ask.
Now, the other reason I want access to the guts of this thing is because I’d really like to add Roy Tanck’s WP-Cumulus – easily the coolest tag cloud I’ve seen.
So this makes the tally so far: $15/year (I’m pretty sure everything in this category will be a yearly cost).
