So your position is that a physician would have recommended against getting daily, low-impact exercise.

That is the advice you think I missed out on, yes?

Stop trying to wiggle your way out of an I told you so. I started this topic specifically to highlight situations where I told someone so, this first instance just happened to be you, the next one here could be somebody else. I was considerate enough to not detract from your weight loss topic with this, so please just take your I told you so like a man and move on.

Yeah, this is fucking moronic. If pinback had got hit by a car you'd be singing the same song. Bring your fucking A game to the new board, if you want to post this dumb shit I'll give you all the room you want on the old one.

Only if the walking he was doing was blindly into traffic and the advice I gave him was to look both ways.

Well, he may very well have had a doctor tell him to do that, as well.

Pinback? Can we confirm? What's your doctor's take on the new BBS styling and features? (Sorry, we're onto the next caper.)

My doctor went on Caltrops and posted this, which I agree with:

"Having defined borders between posts and changing the alternating color to something darker would help a lot."

I don't understand what that means. The posts DO alternate between light and dark blue.

No:

1. The posts alternate between white and extremely-light blue.

2. The forums are all stark white.

By the way, I went to my doctor for the leg issue, and he said, put some ice on it and get back out there, fatso. So Billy, you're wrong on all counts except for the place needing a little more color.

Here's an idea for the color scheme: Robb, you like to use blue in your bbs design and Paul also likes to where blue shirts in many of his youtube videos, Paul's shirts are also always horribly stained in them...pick one of Paul's videos, set the primary color to whatever shade of blue his shirt is in it and the secondary color the same as whatever it's stained with? That would be both dark and gritty (literally) as well as satisfying pinback's desire for bolder contrast.

Pinback, I advised you to consult your physician which you eventually did (giving you the benefit of the doubt that your story is truthful), this is still an active I told you so. Even assuming it was merely a confirmation that you were doing the right thing all along, the value here resides entirely in your doctor's confirmation and not your assumption.

I don't know if we'll be coloring things the color of horseshoe, but I also think that perhaps that is not what you meant?

Can there be a base where all the posts show up as wording on Teh Commander's t-shirt? That would be aces!

I don't understand what that means. The posts DO alternate between light and dark blue.
There are conditions where society demands significant or "high contrast" between some elements to ensure they can be seen. Warning labels are black and white, with minimum font sizes. Look at a container of roach powder or an insecticide spray, and either in black or red, on the back with the instructions, the first fifteen words on that package will be identical: WARNING: It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

Contrast is important and what we look at is the significance level of the two contrasting colors. Consider what our society considers its most valuable cargo that is routinely transported 5 days a week, 9 months a year: school children. And what color do they use for School Buses? Bright yellow to stand out and black lettering to contrast.

What is being complained about is that the difference in contrast between the two post message colors is so low it effectively disappears.

your comment to The Happiness Engine that his idea was "terrible" makes you look like an asshole.

Billy, are you being controlled by The Commander?

I have this image of him lying in some ward, breathing through tubes, while on some bedside screen his brainwaves are bouncing around like an Arkanoid game. In some astral-psychic way he is channeling your ass-holiness and it's coming out here. I see a lot of of common behaviors and you never used to be like this. What's going on?
