I have revised the look and feel of the site to a less doom-laden countenance, eschewing what might appear to be an eco-friendly blackle look to a more polar-bear roasting look.
Frankly, considering most people view blogs via LCDs, the more light from the backlight set free is more likely to help REDUCE power consumption, not raise it, as an LCD is a subtractive form of display and a black rendering just shuts up the light behind closed pixels.
Just shows what a bunch of misguided numpties the eco-nazis are.
UPDATE: I have switched back to black for the moment, using the layout and font changes picked up as part of a fleeting Pipaluk moment. An aggressive, in-yer-face reminder of our Governments Fascist ambitions is an important point to make. A colour scheme can be considered distasteful, but in light of the hard, systematic, premeditated, cynical, authoritarian and treasonous actions by the Government, it is just a mirror exposing their crimes.
