The old IBM's put my developer back into a not-so-pleasant nostalgic days of early programming. Now that I think of it, he also dislikes a light font on dark background, despite being told repeatedly that it is healthier long-term on eyes, reducing strain, etc.  LOL  When my son had one of those fancy eye exams done at the junior olympics this year, I picked the lead doctor's brain during the very long test about why I feel so tired after a (typical) 14-16 hour day in front of the computer. His #1 recommendation was to work as often as possible with a dark background and lighter text to reduce the amount of strain caused by the bright light from the monitor. Even though that echoed my own eye doctor's recommendation, my developer didn't buy it a bit.   Phhhht IBM  Angry

I can bump the color up a little bit brighter. I tested it a bit brighter, but I thought the contrast was too high. We'll see how it turns out...

I bumped the text a bit whiter, and increased the size to make things a little easier. Hopefully that will help.

No problems, Tom  Cheers  and thanks for the kind words.

DJM, I have known more than a few RV owners who purchased RV's so that their little yappy dogs could go anywhere with them, and be comfortable while they traveled. years ago I worked for Tom Raper, and I found that was certainly the case with him.  LOL

Thank, Guys!  Penny--you can play around with the color themes in the top right corner of the page. There are 12 to choose from, each with its own logo photo.  They all have this same dark background, light text combination.  I may be able to tweak the color of the text a small bit to bring it closer to white, though.

Ooh, I love this idea. How'd I miss this post??   shrug

Let me noodle it a little bit, and see what I can come up with that will dazzle and amaze.

PJ, the 85 lb dog is a 11 year old Labrador Retriever named Bonnie. The 124 lb dog is a 3 year old German Shepherd Dog named Charlie. Charlie loves his milk bones with all those vitamins. He stands 30" at the shoulders. You can see a picture of them on the "Adventure Anywhere" page. It did not make the main page as the motorhome was really dirty that day.  Between the PC's size and looks, and this big shepherd, we get a lot of comments from people passing by. It is amazing how many people stop to pet him because of they had a German Shepherd Dog at one time or just because they think he is a "real" dog. Like you said, there are a lot of really small dogs in some really big rigs.

I just want to go on record as saying I love dirty motorhomes!  LOL  Adventuring isn't tidy work. ;-)  The photo didn't make the main page because the really dark shadows in the foreground of the photo weren't playing nice with what I needed it to do with directing the eye around the site. When I cut that part (or some of it) out, then the shape was wrong to fit in the spot. Very cute pic, though! Heart Shower

So if somehow you didn't get booted out, or managed to get in even though we are closed down for maintenance, you'll know what's going on. Wink

I highly recommend this foam topper, if you're getting a memory foam one.

I don't know if it will work in your configuration, but I do know that we own two of them for our beds at home, and the difference is amazing. I've been using mine for months now, and grabbed one for my mother for her birthday. I'm going to get some for my kids' beds too. Everyone's amazed at how much more comfortable my bed is after.

Hope you find a solution that works for you!

Thanks so much to those of you who have sent in photos last week and this week. I haven't forgotten you, and aren't ignoring you. I'm hopelessly buried in work, and have been digging myself back out.   Help  I hope to be all caught up tonight, and add the images and reply to you tomorrow morning!

Dick, As I said before, I'm so glad you guys are safe!  Thanks so much for sharing. I've been checking back every week or so to see if you'd posted your warning yet. I think it's a very important bit of information to share for an owner of any brand of RV.
