    I've heard more people say that. However the majority thinks black looks better, especially for a photo website.
    I have been thinking of toning down the bright white text a bit.. that might help a bit I guess.
    Anyway, I think I'll stick with the black background. Thanks for your input though

    I have something like that in my current layout as a background.
    I'm sticking with black for now though. Look at my previous post about toning down the bright white text. That might also do the trick.
    Thanks for your opinion

    the white seems too cold\stark. but then it all depends if you are looking for a mored media oriented or more science oriented feel. not sure why white is so prevelant on the web. seems to me to be a throwback to white paper and black type.:shrug:

    You mean the background right, not the text ?

    yes. the combinations of text colors on your site, imo, works very well.

    It's a female (or perhaps a juvenile) Libellula depressa (Broad-bodied Chaser). There were loads of them out to today.

    Edit: I found the picture, so it's coming your way

    i think insects are disgusting.
    other than their bodies being remarkable feats of engineering i consider most of them loathsome.

    Why ?

    personal opinion.

    they just give me the creeps.

    i must however say this in their favor:
    in any doomsday event the insect is the most likely to survive, not man.

    There must be a reason for it ?

    Yes, lets hope so

    (Stands up and claps..raising a lighter in the air.)

    Wow Enmos...you done out-did 'urself. I think that's the best pic I've seen from you for overall quality. You can really tell the difference with the new camera. The clarity and crispness of the details is much better. Geez..it looks right out of National Geographic.

    and I'm not blowing smoke up yer chimney...that's some really fine work. Now if I get you to switch over to taking pictures of boobs.

    weeeeeeeelllll fuuuuuuuuuck. let's see.
    very few insect have lips.
    ever get a good close up video of an insect chewing their food?
    i base my observation on tests carried out at hiroshima and other a-bomb test sites. insects were the first forms of life to appear and survive the radiation.

    bugs are pretty cool but they are ugly. for me it is that they are crunchy that gets to me. as i stated before, i would look to ways to see if we can do away with some and trim the herd a little.
