I spruced up the site a bit, applying one of the new templates, cleaning up the header, and generally making the site look more up to date. The hyperlinks color is a bit jazzy for me, but otherwise I find it interesting that color does seem to improve readability (at least for me) rather than simply having black text on a white background. This blog is at maximum width (1000 pixels). In Firefox, the description (Musings....) renders in white font. In Chrome, it's in black font. I've got no clue why, but I'm not going to worry about it.
I didn't say banana.
