Trash it. Now, before it drives you stark staring bonkers.

I use black-text-on-white-bkgd for email, as well as for the documents I
write. And my on-screen desktop is a nice soft gray. No eyestrain. No
'color-shadows' when I look away from the screen at the real world.

Why do I get the feeling that most screen designs were committed by
four-year-olds playing with their first box of Crayolas(R)?
