I do apologize if this is the incorrect forum to ask this but I am new so please don't chastise me for this.
My suggestion is to ask the web designer/owner of this site to change the look of the site. While I like the format and the overall theme of the site, the white lettering on black background can be bothersome to my eyes. I find myself straining at times reading the threads.
Maybe a black on burgundy background would be better and softer on folks eyes.
If this has been suggested already, I would respectfully rescind this suggestion.
Hey Mr. Trashman,
If you have Firefox you can do this Tools>Options>Colors>uncheck Allow pages to chose their own colors, instead of my selections above.
That will give the page a black and white look that might be easier on your eyes.
Hope that helps.
