Default Can someone change the background?

Make it darker? The white background is starting to hurt my eyes.

It'* the most professional looking.

Black is easier on the eyes though, but less appealing.

Change the default background for windows or your browser. Tell it to override the html settings for the page you're viewing.

While MNBC & BA is using > Powered by phpBB 2.0.6 2001, 2002 phpBB Group ::

This can be accomplished with a simple windows appearance or browser setting by an individual user.

The background specified by our phpBB software doesn't matter if you override it on your local machine.

Yeah true, but....wouldn't ALL the web pages you browse then have this "adjustment" to them too then? Instead of just this one site?
