Trying a new thing for the blog with a template change, since many had complained about the dark background and similarly dark text on it.

Along with the change I am trying this 'new' background image.

I will upload it here and see if all works!

Nice layout Murdock. I was told a long time ago that if you are doing a presentation and printing out handouts that they should be dark text on a light background, if you're doing the presentation via a projector (powerpoint or similar) then make it light text on a dark background. But for viewing on a computer dark on light is better.

You'll have to forgive me though - I'm not familiar with that print. Which battle is depicted?

I like the new look. Noticed it right away.

Also, since I'm suffering from a nasty bout of something myself right now, I'm glad to hear to hear that there is "no more rampaging sickness" in your house.

As for the new look, I particularly like the gentle fade of color to white from the top down. The look of your battle photo goes very well with this new layout.

Good choice.

Thank you gentlemen.

The print is of the battle of Libino from the early stages of the 1812 campaign.

I 'adjusted' it for use on the page by 'dodging' out the color, making the image 'greyer' so that the text could be read overtop of it better.

I have plans to change the images from time to time, maybe doing some of the miniature battles as well...
