So ...

... what do people think of the new background? Yucky? Worth keeping? Needs a touch-up or two?

I don't know - I tend to associate the fixed starscape sort of background with the sort of diseased mind that has a website with lots of text made up of randomly ALL-CAPS words, extra-large, bright-colored fonts, a sprinkling of gratuitous animated GIFs, and a focus on either crackpot religion, crackpot newage, or crackpot political conspiracy theories. I may, however, be kind of jaded (and maintain a probably-unreasonable curmudgeonly attitude against darkly-colored backgrounds and backgrounds fixed against the scrolling foreground anyway.)

Less jokingly, I'd suggest that your blog's actual content is generally interesting enough that anyone who finds themselves staring at your background rather than reading your postings has "issues". (I actually had to scroll down a ways before I saw that background - I wouldn't have even noticed otherwise.) It doesn't actually look bad, though.

Thanks for the input. I think I'm going to KEEP IT FOR THE TIME BEING *ahem*, I mean I'll stick with it, at least until the government stops watching my site.

Thanks. I'll take that as a complement.
