Installing and tweaking Geeklog has been a great learning experience for me - I knew nothing about PHP when I started, but now have Geeklog up and running! There are still a few tweaks to be tweaked, but I am extremely happy with it overall.

I'm pleased to announce that Miss Archy.com, "The place for young women in architecture", is geeked!

You have a very nice site. I'm curious what percentage of architects are women today? I also went into a non-traditional field myself. When I started off, we didn't have female mentors or support sites like yours. I wish we had had them, but there was no robust internet back then as we know and enjoy today. Unfortunately, the glass ceiling still exists, but it's been pushed quite a bit higher. After not succeeding in moving it up even more, some of us older timers are opting to just leave the corp world and start our own companies instead.

Thank you Smile I don't know any of the very recent statistics, but in 2000 about 13% of registered architects were women, and about 35% of architecture students were women (both numbers are on the rise).

Just thought I\'d mention that I\'ve created a new theme for my site, if anyone wants to check it out Big Grin I don\'t think I\'ll be releasing it to the public anytime soon, mainly because it\'s so highly tweaked/customized to work with my site specifically Smile It\'s great that so much can be done to customize Geeklog, beyond simply changing colors Smile

I assume I\'m not your target audience, being a male who is not involved with the architecture industry (and perhaps because I am using a mozilla based browser on Linux), but the fonts on your site are way to small to be legible. Luckily it\'s easy to increase the font size on web pages with mozilla (ctrl+) but doing so breaks the page layout. Just thought I would mention it. Decent design otherwise, but I wouldn\'t stick around if it\'s too much trouble to read the content.
