Hello.
My name is Isaac D. and I've been doing this for a while. I have much experience under my belt over the new people to these industries but there is still much more to learn and I do love learning. I live in Florida. Yes, it is hot. And it is always hot. So no asking how the weather is because you'll always receive the same answer. I love to do things. Here is a list of things I like to do: [list removed].

Love me...

Pants.

I don't think I'll be spending too much time here because the text is difficult to read and I'd like to have eyesight when I'm a half-dead old man.

You'll get used to it, we all do. In fact, anyone who's been here longer than a week will tell you the scheme is soothing to the eyes, and that sites with white backgrounds and black text should be forbidden.

Edit; dear pantsman; do you have any previous work you could show us?

I think it was all about:
www.ozoneasylum.com/Forum1/HTML/007755.html

And I am always amused when people say they can't deal with the colour scheme - I'm not sure if it is the pills, the electro-shock batons or our eyes adjusting to the eternal gloom in the halls but it seems just right..........

This forum has indeed a problem. Not this forum, but the software it uses, UBB, that I don't know if it's configurable or not (probably is).
You just can't change the size of the fonts, it's fixed, and this is very bad CSS design decision. I think some browsers, like Opera, can deal with this problem, but since 95% of the general public uses IE, this is a problem because IE can't deal with it.
Smart madsci's, do something... and then if someone complains about the color scheme, just say: "make the font bigger and you may have a workaround".
Or, you could just add an alternative CSS.
Or you could just do nothing and to hell with the finicky new visitors...

Actually I have a tougher time reading white text on a black background. These colors here are much easier on the eyes.

mmmmm... 9px

sometimes I figure it would be nice if the Asylum had more features like phpBB or something, but I always come around and realize that its great just the way it is (maybe the meds help) - fast dl'ing and simple.

Welcome Isaac!!

I didn't really like the font here either when I started but it grows on you. Now I think the other forums have wierd colors. You just need to give it some time .

Hmmm - Safari obligingly scales the type up with command +, and down with command -

Your browsers don't do that?

As long as there is not a fixed size with pixels for fonts, I can quickly change it with the secret arcane power of ctrl + mouse wheel spin.
