rav, I felt the same thing, but couldn't put my finger on what it was, then I remembered that the background (not of the posts, but everything around) used to be blue before. I think that it looked nicer that way, and was also "easier on the eyes" as you said. I figuered out what it was when I was in the Survivor forum and looked at the the top pic that Wolf made of the contestants. I was wondring why it didn't look as nice anymore, and then I realised that it was the white background that made it look bland .Is it me or is the new layout a lot whiter?
Would it be possible to change it back to blue again, John?
