I did that, the site was unreadable, We have a saying, "Clear as mud"...

That sounds like you used the sliders instead of just ticking the "Invert colors" boxes Vic, the sliders here gave me those results.

Cheers.

No I did not use the sliders, I just clicked on the boxes labeled invert

Did you do both back & foreground.

If you did both then I can't understand why as they worked perfectly here.

Anyway, I'm off down the hill for some live music to party with and try and stay out of trouble. ;-)

Cheers.

Wellington actually seemed to take the brunt of the quake. Although there were no casualties a lot of larger buildings suffered structural damage and will need to be demolished as they are now weakened. This has only become obvious in the weeks after the quake as they get inspected properly.

This is actually "by design". The buildings are designed to be able to take quake damage without falling down and killing people. But they can be damaged beyond repair in the process.

Every quake is different in terms of frequencies and acceleration forces. So it's hard to design a building that's safe from ANY quake, as the next one may rock it at exactly it's harmonic frequency and overstress it.

Your new buildings are now going up to Japanese code so stress will be significantly decreased across the ditch as they're now built on "Floating Raft" methods. ;-)

Cheers.

Well a lot of us have known for quite a while that David has lost the plot Chris, Credit New should be the best example here, but there are alternatives to alleviate the eyestrain problem buddy. ;-)

[Edit]Thanks to Hal I'm liking light shades of grayish brown with black text after a little fiddling. ;-)

Cheers.

Many Thanks. πŸ˜ƒ πŸ˜ƒ πŸ˜ƒ πŸ˜ƒ

Inverting both fore & back grounds looks great to me, but still not perfect though it's way better than what's being shoved down our throats ATM.

Cheers.

Cheers, and good night.

I'm sorry Gordon, but that stuff sits in my guts like a huge lead weight. :-(

That's why I much prefer lagers. ;-)

Cheers.

Well I come back here after a long absence and see this CSS rubbish.
My first reaction was "Somebody died?"
Slated is what the designer should be.

If you're using Firefox you can add an extension called "Color that Site!" (maybe available on other browsers) and invert both back and foreground colours.

Cheers.

After inverting all the colours on this site it's actually very readable now and no longer giving me headaches. :-)

But I shouldn't of had to do that.

Cheers.

It looks like some reconstruction is now taking place on the Server Status page.

Cheers.

Yeah, looks like someone is taking care of the main functional issues.

Now if D.A. can change the type to black on the servers status bars it'd be fixed enough for most to see properly.

Cheers.

Oh well and my last brew is going to get bad since i`m still not feeling good enough to bottle it. :(

So long as you don't open the airlock you should be ok for up to a week Mike.

Well I just got my brew down so all I have to do now is empty another dozen bottles before it's ready to bottle.

Anyhow it must be near time to take a wander down the hill for a few, but by this time next week I'll be having beers back at the top pub seeing as the current Licensee has been given notice to move along.

Cheers.

There's no reason to be hostile about it -- the person doing web stuff is probably a volunteer just like the rest of us.

The culprit is right here. ;-)

Now just remember that this change has been brought to you by the same person that gave us Credit New and it's very likely that just as much thought went into both. ;-)

Cheers.

They have time to spend hours and hours creating this crap, but spending a minute to post about problems or progress with the project, is too much to ask.
Yeah, there went that excuse for not keeping us peons updated about the project.

What a joke this has become.

It probably took as much grey matter to work this change out as it did to bring us Credit New, and we all know how screwed up that is.

Cheers.

Speaking of "Black Friday", I ordered my Xmas presents, 2x GTX 1060's, and hopefully they'll be here by next weekend depending on the Xmas transport load (maybe just after if very busy).

Cheers..

Very dark and ominous plus the Server Status is absolutely horrid on the eyes let alone trying to read it. :-(

Cheers.

Wiggo the SSP gives me this:
The setiathome.berkeley.edu page isn’t working

It's working for me here, http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/sah_status.html, just don't try reading what's on the green or white areas as it's near impossible. ;-)

Other colour layout options should've been made available instead of just "Slate" so that people could choose a better option.

Cheers.

The Server Status page works here, but trying to read it is another story.
