New Theme

WordPress 2.02 introduced a lot of new features, including “Widgets” – which make structuring the sidebar much easier. So I upgraded GonZoville to a new template to take advantage of this new technology, and also to get a cleaner look to the site. […]

WordPress 2.0 Upgrade

WPWordPress 2.0 is out, so figured I may as well upgrade the site. They did a nice job updating the back-end.
