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.

If I follow the webmaster's logic, MICHAEL JACKSON IS DEAD AND THE CURRENT MICHAEL JACKSON IS AN IMPOSTER!

This would be far more plausible that Paul being dead, I think...

well, I've had a fever every night for the last five days. It's no fun, especially when you break 104F.

You tried aspirin? That always seems to help me...

Hope ya get to feeling better...

And don't forget, if you get the flu go to the doctor quick! Within two days of getting flu symptons you can get help, after that... well, I've had a fever every night for the last five days. It's no fun, especially when you break 104F.

Here's hoping that I don't come down with another fever tonight.

Wow, I never thought of that, but perfect!

Everything he points out is easily accounted for with make-up, lighting, angle, etc. That boy needs to take some photos him-self, or get something else in his life to spend time on!

I like the new color better as well.

But then again I am one of those people with my monitor adjusted right. So black looks black, not a warm fuzzy gray, so I can see people better in MP....LOSERS!

So the black on bright white yellow is just harsh on my eyes...ahh well

Don't worry tron, your not alone. I too am a fan of the blue background; it must be my affinity for washing daily.

I thought the same thing, but look at this board with Retro checked...

okay, i did that and i still like the new blue look way better...

The beauty of this is: both sides get what they want! How many times does THAT happen in life?

so true.. although i think i'm all alone on this "side"... i hear tons of cheers for retro, but no one pulling for the new look. i guess i just like change... and i like to be able to think back in my mind "remember when blue's was very black and yellow looking??" it was a different time in my life...

Paul isn't dead. Though maybe he should be, rather than John...
