The Next Cool Thing

I’m working with StarOffice 5.2 today — it takes Word documents and uses them seamlessly. I’m in the process of trying to figure out how the hell to change the text to white and the background to dark blue, though, because a paper-white background on a monitor kills my eyes, due to the many hours I spend looking at the screen. Hell, I’d be happy with a black or green background and white text — anything to make most of the screen dark and soothing, not bright and painful.

The story should run well for me today — I have a cool scene mapped out and I’m looking forward to setting the characters loose in it. They did some things that surprised me yesterday — seeing what they’ll do today should be fun.
