I exerimented a little bit with some widgets! I found a really nice one! Its a shoutbox... I had to make an account at www.shoutmix.com and then got a free shoutbox widget! the best part: you can configure nearly everything (colors, fonts, css ...)!
And I made a new banner, with the name of the blog. I used gimp and inkscape for that, I must say: inkscape is great! The picture I used for the banner has been taken by a friend of mine, on a summer vacation (in 2007 I think) at the beach at rimini (Italy)!
