In between my ongoing attempts to buy a house I am still playing on and off with making Sledge into a thing I might actually want to use. First on the list is showing the currently-playing track name and not just its length. Second will be some slightly nicer play/next/previous buttons. Third, maybe making it more robust against pressing "refresh". Ongoing and not yet finished, stripping out the cheesy CSS text shadows etc to make it look less like a 1990s OSF/Motif application and more like "flat UI" - a design trend of which I thoroughly approve. I will be terribly disappointed when the fashion pendulum swings back towards requiring artistic skills for a web page to look modern, because (as you can see) I have none.

(Why is this blog entry titled "Plank"? What else would you call a flat sledge?)
