    Am I the only one whose old eyes are having trouble with the bright white background and the small light blue type face on the Forums page? It does not help that I have a 21" PC screen, but I find myself squinting against the bright light and trying to read the thread titles......
    Thanks for taking a look at it..

    At the bottom left.... click on the style. Prolly says OSA Default Style. Choose OSA Blackened Style and see if you like that better.

    I really like the green version...it's easy on the eyes, and has the best contrast.

    I wish there were some other options. Not sure how that works... wish you could choose your own. I had my old screen set to a blue and gray theme, I think, but it's different than the current default. Just none of these really work for me all that well.

    Of course... I'm only 2 feet from my monitor which is a 42" LCD, but still. It was comfortable before, I can't find any of the three styles now that are truly comfortable for me for some reason.

    I like the green too, but with a 42' monitor can you adjust the contrast on the monitor to dull it down some?

    Sure... but everything else seems ok, or at least I'm used to. Don't wanna change things globally, really.

    Ctrl + will bump your zoom up. That might help.

    Ctrl - to zoom out
    Ctrl 0 to reset

    Thanks, after trying all the options, I seem to get less eyestrain on the green. I run 125% on my monitor all the time, and can read the print on the green OK.

    There isn't an option I really "like" either, but the Blackend seems to be the best option for me. Cannot stand the green.
