I've made a few changes to the site's appearance. Hopefully these will help with readability, which was the intent.
To start, I've pretty much gone with a black and white color scheme. Body text is now a dark gray and links are black. The only place we see color, really, is in the rollovers. Hopefully this is easier on the eyes than the muted blue-gray I had before.
But perhaps more importantly, to my tired aging eyes at least: body text size has been increased to 16 pixels and the line height has been increased as well. This (for me anyway) greatly increases the readability of posts. Before I found myself hitting command+ all the time; now it feels just right.
As I've said before, I'm not a designer by any stretch of the imagination, so I'm totally open to comments and suggestions. But hopefully most folks will find the changes to be an improvement.
