Site-related: Template tweak

I'm looking for feedback about whether the new, wider blog template is working okay on computers other than my own. I haven't fiddled with the template much over the years, mostly because I'd figured out how to get the blog to do more or less what I wanted it to do and look more or less like I wanted it to look, and didn't see much point to changing stuff just because everybody else was changing stuff. But then I got a look at the site on the husband's new, football-field-sized monitor, and realized you know, there really is an awful lot of blank space on either side of the text.

If it doesn't display well for enough people, I can change it back, or expand it in a less drastic manner, or something, but for myself, I kind of like this version, so I'm inclined to keep it like this if nobody has any huge complaints about it.

Here is a picture of the Euphorbia milii hybrid with the big yellow flowers, just to keep this post from being completely unrelated to plants:

Works fine for me. And I still have blank space on either side. Which I never noticed until you pointed it out.

Yep. Didnt notice any change and there is free space on my 1280x720 screen. It can stay as it is right now :)

Does your hybrid have a name? I love the size and color of the flowers.

Lots of sites have blank space on widescreen monitors. As long as the content is centered, it's not a big deal; one learns to tune it out. What is jarring/annoying is when the content is all jammed up against the left side of screen.

You're fine. :)

I'm sure it does, but I don't know it. There are a few of this sort of thing out there, though, with bigger leaves and flowers -- try searching for "Euphorbia milii Thai hybrids."
