November News: Minor Redesign and more

As you can see fudgegraphics got a slightly new look. The main content area has not been changed, but I felt the header needed some spicing up. I actually used on of the paper textures which you can get here in case you missed them. Anyways, I hope you like the new look.

With the design come a few new features. They are all about RSS. You now have to option to subscribe to fudgegraphics either via your regular reader or you can get all the updates via e-mail straight to your inbox. Furthermore I finally added the feed count widget. I was thrilled when I broke the 1000 subscriber barrier and I hope to break some more soon.
