I didn't really care for the Gray Flame design as much as I thought I would when I initially created the flame. The design was intriguing but there was just too much wrong with it. The scrolling was particularly horrid; one, it was not possible to use a scroll wheel and two, the page was choppy when scrolling. I just didn't like it. For the past week or so I had been trying to come up with a new design to replace the Gray Flame. Well, today it hit me. What you see now (clear your browser cache) is not quite what I envisioned but it is certainly pretty damn good if I do say so myself. It seems that every time I sit down to create a design that is in my head I end up changing it while working on it. I suppose that is just the natural order of the process though. Work up a rough draft in my head and type out the final version when I get to the keyboard. Any way, I think I might be able to look at this design for a while. As always, feedback is welcomed.


I like the colors, I don't like having to read across the entire page. I guess it could be because I just bought a big ass monitor but it's hard to keep track of what line you're on all the way through.

That kind of makes me sound like a moron, so I won't put my name down!

I adjusted the line height. How is it now (Ben?)?

I like it. It is simple enough, but I don't know if orange and yellow go with you...or maybe I am used to read your gray post...I don't know

Simple and sweet. I liked the ingenuity of the previous design because it breaks the monotony of the web, but the scrolling was atrocious. This is very refreshing.

And Mr. Cuddles most definitely is NOT me!

Interesting. The writing style was very similar.

When you say our "writing style was very similar" do you mean that we both complain alot? :)
