Little tip for those new to Invision based boards...

When you use the buttons to set a font, size, or colour, click the button again after typing your post. Either that or use the 'Close all tags' link. The board won't accept the setting unless you do.

Edit: If you do feel the urge to use colours, be gentle on my eyes - light colours really don't work for text, and it's awkward having to highlight posts to read them.

We are at war with Eastasia. We have always been at war with Eastasia. We were never at war with Eurasia. Eurasia is our ally.

Ooo! if this is right this should be green I think lets see...

hmm.. not green right second attempt this will be blue

Ok not looking good here hows about orange?

Im thinking now is the time for a hasty retreat whilst I rehearse my all too rusty colour theory! Are there other colours out there? and how on earth do you train them to sit still and behave whilst trying to concentrate on letters? Eep!

Now lets see if you sit there quietly and I type this you should be ... ah! ... hmm........

Little observation from when I was messing around on the spoonguard thread.. You can use hex values for colours.


Like so.

What's a hex value? Hex (hexadecimal) is a numbering system, like decimal. It goes through the numbers 0-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-A-B-C-D-E-F. Hex colours use three colour strains, red, green, and blue, aka RGB. 0 is the darkest, and F is the lightest. (so #000000 is black, and #FFFFFF is white). Each of these strains has two digits, and you preface the whole thing with a #.

That example above looks like this:

(with added line breaks so it doesn't trail of the edge of the post).

You can of course go for even more shades by using 01, 02, 03, 5B, F3 etc., but I'm too lazy for that and it's more shades than the human eye can distinguish anyway.

Well, I'm done.


JERUSALEM, Israel (AP) - In response to Israel's denial of water to the West Bank, HAMAS released three cheetahs in West Jerusalem, where they went on a killing spree, mauling four Jews and injuring thirteen.

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) - Following a cheetah attack on West Jerusalem perpetrated by the majority HAMAS party, the Israeli Air Force retaliated by detonating twenty kiloton nuclear devices over Gaza City, Jenin, Nablus, Rafah, and Ramallah.

ASHDOD, Israel (AP) - As a result of the atomic bombings of five Palestinian cities, a 50-foot tall reptile has woken from its million-year slumber in the Mediterranean Sea. The monster has made landfall at Ashdod and obliterated the city. Eyewitnesses report that the monster left the destroyed city heading southeast.
