    Once you reach 1001 posts, you get to choose from a list of site themes based on actual bourbon and rye bottle labels.

    I've been swapping back and forth between the Pappy 20 theme and the WT 12 Gold Foil theme. I can't decide which I like better.

    I don't like reading a on black background. So I have a blue on white color scheme. Of course I get an occasional post that looks blank because poster has a white font selected (Leif - I'm talking about you). I do have a Java sript bookmarked for firefox that removes all colors and makes those posts instantly viewable.

    I'm lazy, I just click and drag to highlight the post and read it that way

    I've been using approx, no reason why, but I don't like the red and black. If you highlight the white font it become more visible.

    That's a good tip. Not often I run into a post that isn't showing well on my red/black, but click & drag fixes it... cool

    I'm having a little trouble finding those bourbon based themes there Scott. Joe

    By the way I'm going with the red/black as it was what came up when I first joined. I guess I'm just comfortable with it.
