Same here. When it happened initially I noticed Russo was logged on. Suspect he gave the board a bit of a change. I used to know how to change the skins but it's been so long I don't remember.

Generally the changes are for the better, but the background colour (grey) does not have enough contrast compared to the text. Its more difficult to read than before.

If you want to go with a white background, try this:
using Internet Explorer
click on Tools
click on Internet Options
General Tab
Accessibility
click on Ignore colours specified on web page
OK

Makes it easier to read for me. Yeah, it could be that my eyes are a little older than they used to be. Smile

I liked the site colors before, but this isnt a bad change ether. None the less, I can't find the google search box... Any body know where it went? The site search feature really sucks if you ask me, but the google search works nearly perfectly.

Man thats REAL offensive. If that was the worst thing anyone ever said to me I'd be blessed. At my age nothing sits "comfortably" except my ass on a 650.
