IMHO, white text on black is nearly always an amateurish design, bereft of creativity and solid design technique. I avoid reading such sites because I find them tiresome on the eyes. Just give me plain ol' black type on a white/light coloured background. That provides the most contrast is thus easiest to read, for me at least.

Because lots of people don't get sick days, and no work equals no pay. Where I work, 3 sick days a year were eliminated a few years ago. Recent layoffs now mean I am literally the last man standing in my department, which is a critical cog in a production wheel. If I stay home there is nobody to do the work and I end up coming in anyway.

I simply dope up, gulp cough syrup with codeine, and stay away from people as much as possible. I have no other alternative except unemployment.

Some people claim that the UNIX learning curve is steep, but at least you only have to climb it once.
