Blog Squirrel, now in HD

Believe it or not but this blog uses a template! One designed by Google/Blogger in 2004, and though it's nice... it doesn't really make the best use of monitors designed after 2004. Perfect for those classic 800x600 and 1024x768 displays, but anything higher gets treated to big vertical borders at either side of the blog posts. Now I don't know about you, but that doesn't seem to be an efficient use of space to me, so I've converted those pixel widths into percentage ones.

The downside is if you're using an 800x600 monitor, this blog will look horrible. But to be fair, everything looks horrible if you're using an 800x600 montior. Things might still look a bit strange with crazy 1080p monitors, but the point is things shouldn't be as cramped anymore.
