A Poll

But first, two things:

I didn’t take this amazing photo of luna, but I wish I did.  (Alas, I don’t have access to that kind of equipment.)

Second, my blog is now table-free; it’s formatted entirely with CSS.  If you’re viewing my site in the "simple" theme, then there isn’t a single table on the whole homepage.  (If none of that means anything to you, don’t worry: that just means you aren’t a geek.)

[Update: I forgot to say that the reason this matters is, when I was using tables, the text of posts would sometimes spill out the right side of the page.  I don’t know if that’s a browser bug, or if I was doing something wrong when formatting my tables’ widths etc, but without the tables it doesn’t happen.]

Finally, a poll, and I’d really appreciate every one of you responding to this.  It’s simple and takes only 3.7 seconds.  I have two different computers running here, and the box on this page is a completely different color on the two different systems.  What color is it on your computer?

I looked it up (http://www.yaelf.com/colour.shtml) and it’s definitely gainsboro

EAEAEA / 234’s

aside from the literal report, looks light grey to me

Gainsboro, eh?  I was thinking more along the lines of papaya whip, but whatever suits your fancy :)

And yeah, I know it’s #EAEAEA, that’s the color that I programmed it to be... but it doesn’t show up that way on one of these here computers.  From the looks of this little survey, it’s some isolated problem with that box and isn’t widespread, which is good news.  #EAEAEA is supposed to be gray.
