This version of Blix has been modified to support widgets and tags, and work with WordPress 2.1 and above. I have added style sheets for a flexible width layout.
The original readme with updated instructions is below.

Hey, thanks for downloading Blix, you're definitely one of the cool kids!
I've had some trouble lately so do me one favour: Please use Blix for projects that don't offend anybody. You musn't use it for pornographic websites or something similar! I'd appreciate if you'd just use it for your personal blog. Really.
But nonetheless: Enjoy!
Blix is licensed under a GPL license, which basically means that you can modify it in any way you like. However if you choose to re-release it, the license has to stay the same and you've to credit all authors that have worked on the theme before.
That's simple, just upload the Blix folder to your themes folder which probably is wordpress/wp-content/themes/.
If you're not familiar with WordPress pages I highly recommend reading this introduction.
Note that each of the following pages is voluntary. Blix will still work properly without them.
The About Shorty will be displayed on the front page and will be automatically linked to your About page in case you've set up one.
The contact form's target e-mail address is the one you've specified in WordPress as your admin e-mail address.
You can set up as many pages as you like. All pages will be automatically added to the navigation.
In case you've got more pages than fit into the main navigation Blix offers a secondary navigation in the sidebar.
Blix supports Gravatars.
Just drop your own banner called header_bg.jpg into images/spring_flavour/ and you're done. Dimensions should be at least 690px x 150px.
If your custom banner already include's your blog's name, open layout.css, go to line 139 and remove the comments (
/* ... */). That's it.
A big "thank you!" goes to Kevin Potts for allowing me to use his excellent blog icons for this theme.
