Past Site Headers

One of the things that Amalasuntha and I enjoy about maintaining this site is the ability to add custom headers.  This is a feature available on many (though not all) WordPress blog themes: each theme has different size requirements for custom headers and will result in different effects.  The current theme – called ‘Mistylook’ by a contributor called Sadish – provides a reliably reliable background for adding all sort of piccies to.
