Out of the Blue

Unwashed heathens rejoice, the retro colors option has been added to the main news page here. The archive pages and most of the main static pages have now likewise been updated, though the forums and a couple of other areas generated by scripts still need to be worked on, so for now we have one retro colors option on the new format and a retro retro colors option on the old one. I am, of course, a monkey myself, and I have to express my extreme gratitude to Frans who has put in a yeoman volunteer effort at getting these pages updated, and thanks in advance, as he will be instrumental in updating the remaining pages over the coming days.

In the meantime, an issue has been raised about font sizes after the update, and how they scale larger and smaller across different pages, so I will be looking into creating a more consistent behavior in this area.

Play Time: The Hello World Project. Thanks nin and Wired.
Links of the Day: Paul Really Is Dead.

I love it. The blue is nice - but the black is refreshing -
weird how that works - Nice to see a step back rather than a step forward into ugly like some other sites have done.
