TECH NOTE:

Just increased the font size on the blog... Better this way? Should I use a black-on-white colour scheme for the posts? Might tweak my stylesheets soon...

Coming from someone who followed you over here from Charlie's blog, I definitely prefer the black-on-white color scheme, it has the slight advantage of not making my head split within 5 minutes :-)

I'm new here, (I came over from Charlie's blog after reading your guest posts) so I don't know how it was with the old font size, but I find this quite readable. I don't usually like white text on black, either.

Cheers Anthea and Anon - thanks for following me over! I'll definitely keep this font size, and play with colour schemes.

Previously the text was actually grey rather than white, but with the smaller font, who knows whether anyone ever noticed?

...and of course if anyone really must read it in the smaller size, browser text is resizeable via Ctrl- and Ctrl+. Of course I'm a PC. Might be different in Appleonia.

Great posts at Charlie's, by the way. I followed you over there from here, but find the atmosphere there a bit opinionated and fractious for my tastes. Don't go changin'.

Thanks for following me over! I will be a good blogger (good-ish) and post more stuff soon... but I deeply appreciate what you say. I don't really need rants and flame wars, even if it would mean more visitors passing (trolling) by.

Having a team of moderators is part of the setup... they recently caught a spam attempt which - I have to admit - was very clever. It picked up one sentence from a post, removed the final full stop (point) and replaced it with a question mark, and turned that into a comment. Pyschotherapist-bot turned spambot. Clever but nasty.
