... Well, all right, then.  I agree, so brighter yellow it is.

For purpose of background imagery, http://www.eilertech.com/stories/2010/index.htm

What?  Substance over style?

Yeah, I can see how a search function might be useful.  I can slam
something in from Google.  The main challenge will be, letting you
search stories only instead of the web logs, travelogs, and everything
else on Eilertech.com.  I've already got an RSS feed for the web logs,
but (1) that trick works better on entries I'm not continually
rewriting, and (2) it doesn't work well enough to interface with
Facebook anyway.
