These thing are a shocking, tragic loss. The loss will remain.
I wish all concerned the very best in dealing with it.

Hi Jim.
So you went to your 'Profile', 'forum profile information' section, added an image and you see the image there (top left under 'Personalized Picture', and yet it does not show in your posts.

Couple of things.
Perhaps try clicking the 'Personalized Picture' button (rather than loading your own) and choosing one of the supplied pictures, just to see if that works when you go back to one of your posts. If that also does not work then we have a problem ... and Mike should look into it (he has higher admin priviliges).

And perhaps the picture you loaded is not in the format or size the board accepts for posts (even though it is showing in your profile). Not sure on the exact size allowed, but maybe you should stick to images no more than 100 x 100 in size.

I actually read more non-fiction than fiction.
I even enjoy reading manuals ... odd but true.

Now reading
- Warblers of the Great Lakes Region by Chris Earley (what can I say, I like birds)
- Derrida: Margins of Philosophy (a re-read in this case. I have a doctorate in philosophy, and just can't kick the habit)
- Designing Interactions by Bill Moggridge  (a book you dip into rather than read from beginning to end. Its a fine big book on contemporary technological design, especially digital, its history and its effect)

This is a great new double album from Robert Davies.
Totally listenable, drone-based material in the tradition
of Grassow, Alio Die, Oophoi ... but unmistakably Robert Davies.

Here are some samples.
CD1 - Aura Sublime

CD1- In Darkness Dreaming
http://www.dataobscura.com/samples/do028-2-01.mp3
http://www.dataobscura.com/samples/do028-2-03.mp3
http://www.dataobscura.com/samples/do028-2-08.mp3
http://www.dataobscura.com/samples/do028-2-11.mp3

And a link to the album on the new DataObscura site
www.dataobscura.com/proddetail.php?prod=DO-028

There are also 2 full tracks on the Radio page on the site.

Please do listen. This is a fine piece of work beginning to end.

Talking of sci-fi ... recently finished Alastair Reynolds "Revelation Space". Found it to have some great concepts and ideas, but in the end an unsatisfying plot. Little ponderous.

Now re-reading "The Sybil" by Par Lagerkvist.  Not sci-fi. Classic.

I take that back ... Mesh does not color-separate posts and is narrower.
Back-n-black is better.


but could be time to head over to
http://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/
and see what others they have. Good to find something
easy on the eyes & with a bit of character.

Yep, I also miss the bottom of page navigation.

Mike: on the template thing, I particularly like Mesh ... another dark theme similar to the one you suggest.

I certainly don't mind you linking to images on the dataobscura site, John.
It has unlimited bandwidth.

Good to get comments on the design style. I keep things relatively simple
and clean. I especially like to have a recognizable 'style' that they
conform to. Each wth its own graphics, but with the same layout.
