    Pink banner is a Very Best in itself!

    Thanked by (3)Not_Oles Falzo nullnothere

  • Woah @Not_Oles - I'm honoured (or should I be distressed?). Thank you for your kind words. I wrote that up purely as a tribute to our local IPv6 champion @Brueggus - his wit, impishness and repartee over at the OGF have always been fun and inspiring - I wish I could double and treble witticisms like that. I felt he needed a note of appreciation and this was my way of paying a tribute. I hope it was received as intended and I'm happy that it was noticed by at least the connoisseur crowd around.

    Muchos Gracias for noticing and hopefully egging me on.

    I'm surprised at how not-so-jarring it actually looks (to me). I'm rather unimaginative and pretty colour blind/obnoxious I think - so I never "experiment" much and typically go with some rather lame defaults. So it was refreshing to say the least.

    Back to lurking...

    Thanks, your bandwidth has been quadrupled.

    It's hard to resist considering the frequent opportunities for snarky comments over there. Sometimes it's really funny, sometimes I feel bad when people just don't get that I'm messing with them and send me their root credentials via PM since they think I'm a rep of $provider.

    Thank you - I have enough bandwidth to run circles around the globe many times over and still have some left over bits to spin some tails with.

    Oh wow! Now that's evil genius for sure. Just imagine what the nefarious like yours truly would do :smiley:

    I'm appalled though. I can't even begin to imagine how naive they seem to be. You're too kind sir - lesser mortals would have made things ahem... interesting.

    I wish there was a gentle way to teach them to laugh at themselves and learn... perhaps a good willed April's 1st of sorts.

    You've got me thinking now... beware pranksters at play.

    I can't see so well. Especially with the modern web's low contrast and small fonts. So, in addition to lots of zoom, I use Chrome's High Contrast Accessibility extension which I often set to "inverted Color." The text then shows as white on a black background and the green LES banner becomes pink. :)

  • Boom! Today's post by @alento beautifully exemplifies the courteous responses so characteristic of LES!

    Well, I am just one guy here, and without any official authorization to give "awards." Indeed, I feel silly about maybe inappropriately calling out @alento or anybody and maybe embarrassing them. But I want to share what it is about LES that makes me love visiting here so much! 💖

    See how @Ganonk subtly and cleverly reduced the $7 price mentioned by @vyas by $2! Or, could it be that prices mentioned here at LES automagically reduce themselves with each mention? I got a really good laugh out of this! Thanks @Ganonk!

    You guys might remember that I am looking at LES with lots of zoom and also with Chrome's Accessibility plugin set to Reverse Color. I was amused by my view of the new Donations Graphic!

    Just for the record, I did not find the donations link intrusive, and I am delighted to count myself among the donors. Congratulations to Anthony, Mason, Mikho, and everybody here on the success of the donations!
