I'm having the same problem. But, will check again later.

Drat. Well, could be one of two things: one, Siteground, where this is hosted, often has little outages and you guys may be hitting one; or two, I've noticed a LOT of people from a LOT of different places around the world saying recently that they're having problems with their connections in very small ways, which sounds like another security attack problem (again).

Thanks for checking again though -- I think I've figured out how to do this, involving greyscale PNGs...

As something of a geek, for me it's just automatic to hit ctrl+ to enlarge text as I need. I don't even think about it.

I think it's a very nice looking site and I also especially like the image you used for the header.

I'm of Irish descent myself, last name is Mullins (I know, that's like Smith here ) and some day will visit over there to look up distant relatives.

I've bookmarked your site and will try to visit when I can.

.png files can be pesky buggers (I think that's what the "p" stands for ). If you haven't already, give the free image editing program The Gimp a try. It's all I use and I find it very helpful. Of course it comes from the Linux community but there is a Windoze version.

Always have to be different, don'cha, Mason?!

Yeah, the geek partner has mentioned Gimp too, Mason -- the problem is that my copy of Photoshop is SO old that I don't think some of this stuff is on there in any kind of automatic way. (It's been a long time, in terms of computer years) since web design was my business.)

I'm trying to keep this old Macbook from dying as long as possible, but when it does, I'm going to also pop for all new versions of all my programs. He's got a new version of PS, but I can hardly go borrowing his laptop every time I need to do a new graphic...so I may well try Gimp out.

Hi Zina!

I also want to comment on your generosity of spirit! You have created a wonderful knitting blog, and I know it takes hours and hours of effort and time to do so!

Thank you, Zina! It is a beautiful thing! Very informational, well thought-out, and makes sense, too!

Things like font and colors are small things in comparison to CONTENT! In the end, a perfectly beautiful website with nothing to say is really just nothing! Your website is beautiful, relevant and informational!

Kudos, kiddo! Kudos!

Aw, thanks, D! I'll be relieved when I get the writing done on the design primer, though. That's going to be a slog to get through!

I know, it's really very difficult for me to actually get anything done these days...I tend to think, "oh, I just need something for the blog" and then end up playing with whatever it is for hours...

Tinkered around with a few of the TOYS on your blog, Z!
Fun! Took the 'color/hue' test! Meh. I scored 24.

The first time you posted the link it ended it .net, the second time you posted it, it ended .com so I think that is the cause of the confusion of it working for some and not for others.
