James, I thought I was going mad or had changed it myself. Change it back!
Gimme your Pile and gimme your tail.

I live in New York, and I was thinking about the lagoon in Central Park, down near Central Park South. I was wondering if it would be frozen over when I got home, and if it was, where did the ducks go. I was wondering where the ducks went when the lagoon got all icy and frozen over. I wondered if some guy came in a truck and took them away to a zoo or something. Or if they just flew away.

Change is bad! We fear change!

Seriously though.. it might be just because it's not what I'm used to, but it seems a bit harder to read in verdana? Especially the bold titles. The un-bold stuff seems a bit weaker on the eye too. But I shall give it time to sink in.

It's one of those things you'll grow to get used to. I'm not fussed either way, it's only a font. There are like.. whales dying and stuff ;)

I quite like it in the actual posts... but it looks weird on the index page thing with the topics. :/ Not too bothered though.

it's never looked good in bold.
if you unbolded it, and make the normal fonty bits (that arent bold) teeny, THEN...it'd be alright.

but it's not & baaaah!
