Out of the Blue

I'm feeling that much better since my cold, but it has killed my appetite for most of this week, and it's still not right. I guess that's one way to get one's beach body (yeah right) back for the summer, but it's left me a little weakened. I was hoping to fire up the first steaks on my new grill today, but while that would certainly be a good way to restore some of that lost vigor if I could eat it, I'm worried I'll just end up picking at it, so I think I should just hold off on that.

Having the exact same design since, I dunno, 2001-2002 is simply due to nobody putting any effort into making a new one. ;)

Don't discount us cranky old PC gamers! Blue has polled before and most have been resistant to change. I love this design, maximum readability and little clutter. Nice and simple (on the frontend at least).

So great job Frans and Bagpuss!
And fast! Even for dial-upers assuming they block the annoying bloated ads.!
