    I have no idea what you're talking about ;) but the Quick Style Chooser in the bottom-left corner may be of interest to you.

    No way, it's just some greyscale, how can that hurt your eyes? It's just playing tricks on them. You expect to see one thing and get another.

    It's a great prank. Perfect one for Q to pull too (he's colour blind)

    It will only be for a day, I'm sure. :)


    (I noticed the quick style changer too, just didn't want to say) :)

    Actually, when I think about it, it's quite pleasant on the eyes. :cool:

    That was my first thought, too. :)

    can we get this as a skin option for the future? It's nice - it's actually nicer reading text on a grayscale site without colour distractions.

    When I woke up this AM I sat down to read and thought I went color blind over night. I went back to my night stand to get my glasses. Sat back down and figured out It was not me. (Hahahahaha). I just had a Birthday yesterday and was told I was getting old. Whew.......

    I had to laugh at myself.

    TOUGHEN UP, PEOPLE!

    One day, and the complain has started already.


    And this page is not harder, or easier, to read. You're just not used to it, as iBlue said already.
