New Flash fic site

New flash fiction site for those of us who prefer our mysteries dark, dank and filled with cordite.

It's white on black, REALLY hard to read, but maybe if I whine enough it will magically change.

Beware--were the website to change for the better, people will come screaming about the power of the mob
*wonders about the US without "mob" leaders like George Washington and Martin Luther King, Jr.*

If you go to the comments page of any post on a BLACK on WHITE blog,
the color scheme reverses, click on "show original post" and read BLACK ON WHITE.

I hate eyestrain.

That link results in a page that says: "That address is not valid."

There's an extra / in the url - great site, though! Right up my alley, so to speak

Love flash fiction.

Despise white on black.

New glasses just cost too damn much.

Therefore won't read.

Shame.

There's always cut and paste into a word processing program...

Gotta love that flash fiction!

Filled with cordite might even be an understatement! lol

oh bummer, I typed this wrong: Sorry about that.

When you go to the comments page of any post on a WHITE on BLACK blog,
the color scheme reverses, so you can click on the link "show original post" and read BLACK ON WHITE.

Easier on the eyes

Also, white on black is muchissimo more readable if you bump up the type size, an easy chore on both PC and Mac. (And *&^@# the fact that I know how to do that. Cuz I'm gettin' too old.)

(I'm using Firefox.) You can go to View, Page Style, No Style. The text is black; background white. The advantage is that this way you can read more than one post at a time.

Good advice, Dave. Thanks.

Anytime I hit aqn unreadable color combination like this, I do a quick "Control+A" - this selects all the text and generally renders it visible for a quick scan. If I decide I really want to read it, I copy and paste it into a ext editor. Just one geek's way of asserting my right to choose my visual poisons .....
