‘My Name is….?’

Welcome to Outpost.

Each year the site goes through a bit of a reboot, whether its the appearance or the content.

This year it’s different; it’s the name alongside a slight layout change.

I became uncomfortable where people were looking at the site and they saw my name at the top, as if it was to enlarge something about me.

So instead, after going through many, many names, Outpost is the one.

Why?

Well, I like how it gives the impression of observing and looking out for anything in the distance, and in technology and games, it’s apt.

I can also tie it into features and even Twitch, without saying ‘DARYL BAXTER LIVE‘ without making me look ridiculous.

I’ve also tidied up the menu in the header, alongside slightly changing some of the fonts to make them all match up with one another.

I’ve also added something I’ve wanted to for a while: Search! You can finally look for something from long ago if you wanted. Posts from ‘the beginning’ do exist, so have fun there while I look the other way.

There’s much less white space in the content area now, so it’s less of how Twitter for iPad looks and more Tweetbot instead. Of course I can have better control on the right sidebar, with custom text and tweets, but in a way to not distract you.

The url is still going to be ‘darylbaxter.com‘, but I’m currently in the middle of setting up a redirect to another.

If there’s any feedback you’d like to give, send it across to Twitter.

Enjoy.
