Today, a new era dawns here at Pr3++yG33kyTh1ng. No longer must we labor under the default Blogspot text-only banner rectangle.
No longer must this blog blend into the "Safe Weight Loss Herbal Supplement" blogs, the created and abandoned husks of derelict blogs spinning in the blackness of cyberspace forever emitting their tiny trails of sparks and spam-laden comments, and the "Tokyo Subway Phonecam Upskirt" blogs.
No, my friends. Today we have a banner.
And who do we have to thank?
Andrew Freaking Moore. He provided the winning slogan in the slogan contest. He went far enough in a later submission to reduce my age by two years. While picking a single slogan from all the choices was not easy, Mr. Moore has not only solidified the past 400+ posts into a single unified meaning . . . he has given Pr3++yG33kyTh1ng a vision for the future, a purpose for typing this stuff out every day and configuring countless mobile devices to vibrate whenever a comment is posted.
What thanks could I possibly offer? I believe the customary gift is a T-Shirt.
It will be provided as soon as Zazzle can churn it out and ship it.
I also must thank my lovely and supportive wife who sat for far too long with me "backseat banner editing". I think the traditional gift for that is socks, but I'll Google that later to be sure. Those would have to be phenomenally nice socks, believe me. If only backseat banner editing were the most annoying thing I do.
I'd also like to thank everyone who submitted an entry. They were all completely awesome.
Tomorrow we may go back to the regular topics, but Pr3++yG33kyTh1ng will never be the same.

I love the image of the keyboard. It's so glossy but texturized as well; great job!
