Well, here it is: I designed the logo yesterday afternoon in Adobe Illustrator, and have spent all my time since then scraping at the White As Milk WordPress theme until the colors, sizes, and layout were closer to what I had in mind. I was a computer science major once upon a time, but it’s been a very long while since I had to muck with any code, so please let me know if I mangled the theme so badly that something actually stopped functioning.
The title above says “More or Less Complete” because some odd CSS inconsistency is making the text on Archive pages start lower down, and I have to manually add the title. It’s six in the morning, though, so perhaps this is something that can be revisited tomorrow. I welcome you to send suggestions if you have any. (Update: Now that I have two posts I realize that there was extra space left at the top for links to adjacent posts. I still wonder how the Archive page is supposed to line up with the others, though.)

Your logo is fantastic, as is the site itself.
Thank you! I think you are swell.
And it turns out the “odd CSS consistency” is not really an odd CSS consistency. It’s something to do with the fact that I can’t embed PHP directly in pages based on the default template, so I had to revise the theme’s Archive template instead, which presumably is leaving space on top for links that will never appear (or something). I found some plugins that should make my CSS work on a normal page, but they all manage to screw up the actual results somehow. Still working on this, and comments still welcome.
Okay, never mind, fixed it. Silly me for throwing in extra divs and mucking everything up.
As a side note, I recommend Exec-PHP over other WordPress plugins that allow for PHP in posts. Hefty documentation, and works quite well when you don’t mess up yourself.
