why should it be anywhere in particular?
also black because its easier on my eyes. I never understood the skeumorphic tendency to make the background 'light' and the text 'dark' in value like a computer should emulate a piece of paper. giving off as little light as possible makes sense as I do most of my time on the computer after dark. all my word-processing software is the same--templated to be light-on-dark. Export it to paper standards when it needs to go elsewhere.
anyway have a comfy pape
