I've been muddling about changing the layout of this blog for some time. I found the white text on black background, among other things, to be kind of hard on the eyes, but since no one ever complained about it, I assumed it was just me. I was also leery of changing it after witnessing the chaos that ensued when Luminiferous Ether changed her blog. She lost a bunch of stuff and it took her days to get it to the point where she was happy with it again. Then Quakerdave mentioned in a comment that he couldn't even read it due to the unfortunate color scheme I had chosen back when I first started the thing. That was enough to convince me that the time had come, and here it is. I may play around with it some more, as I'm not totally happy with how it looks, but it's a start. I hope you all find it easier to view, and please let me know if anything about it bugs you.
P.S. A special thank you to QD. Without your comment I may not have gotten around to changing it for months.
