    No bloody joke, guys. It's so surreal, shit ain't funny. Now this is NOT a joke statement. So far so good, I can recall blokes from Russia (?), Netherlands (Tur=mastermind?), France (...), Ukraine (......), Germany (wtf?), and lastly but not least, 3 from Japan (W...T...F) and 2-3 from South Korea (kallery.net=referring URL/site? o_O). Somehow or another my hit/stat counts are still below the 1K mark. But then again, this kind of figures=international status? :eek: I suspect my latest post might be my final undoing. :saurumon:

    P.S: I know I dun have to worry abt Australia b/c for all I know, AnalAlex might have gone anal-blackmail mode on the potential viewers. :fart:

    Final P.S: Anything weird in Google's loading speed? My side would always hit random snail pace. :devildl:

    Edit: Forget to add this in... no comments in my blog barring that one net buddy?:confused:

    Can we see an address to the blog?

    At moments I've had views from all over the world on my various websites (hand-coded) but never many.

    And I've noticed that with Google too! It might be that it's encrypted? Or Google Drive? Weird...

    Blogspot is actually a subset of Google so as to speak.

    P.S: Greatest evidence on my words being legit... (for the past 24 hrs some more)

    And to think why got Norway LOL! :p But still got this funny feeling that Google translate has been really wonky. In fact via personal experience, I actually understood that there's no such thing as a one-for-one translation system. T_T

    Add: Now even got Vietnam. WHAT THE *BLEEPGOOT*??!!! O_O

    Yes I remember your Avatar! Haha!

    But it's really impossible to read you know; with the text that colour and the background has it is... At least I already have glasses... heh

    At least it wasn't this:

    At the end of the day, I guess it's down to the nature of the background. It's not really the font colors' issue. But ironically, that would mean that the readers can still pause the scrolling w/o any major beef in visualizing. And yeah, I should have knew it. Kim Jung III's stamp of approval LOL! :D

    P.S: Funnily enough, I do have the impression that I might have created a word-background fading effect due to the scrolling. o_O And now got one bloke from Belgium. Suspect it might be our very own Darth Vader. Unless he's now bumming somewhere in the Scottish highlands drinking tea with William Wallace. -.-'

    Dat bloke from Belgium is your very own european reflection! Moi, ik, ich (yes the three languages of Belgium).

    I'm more like Padmé, coming form UK but living in Belgium.

    And three things about readability:
    - never have blue and red when text and background (or other way round)
    - always have a large amount of contrast between text and background
    - don't write directly over a picture. Have some box the text goes in or something (can be translucent)

    lol forgot that you're a Belgian as well. Good thing Met wasn't around. He might go off on a ranting session on why Belgians=pedos. -.-;

    Also the biggest beef I'm right now asking myself was down to the font colors. The funniest thing yet? Everything should never be a fixed deal on my end in everything I do here.

    P.S: So any nice suggestions on the font colors. tbh I could have come up with better alternatives if not for my own sense(?) of aesthetics going horrbily wrong. Quite a few chop & change and things still... :(

    Looks like a cool blog. With that font colour and that background image though I found it a little hard to read. Very difficult to concentrate on the words.

    LMFAO! You did tell me to do my worst. :p

    @Crouton: Well, I did take Druid's advice on board. Sorta anyway since I still can't find the perfect color for the font. :(

    Is there a way you could get a sort of plain colour block to the put the text in, like a white or a grey, and they have the picture surrounding that? I set up a blog on blogspot ages ago, I don't use it anymore but when I did all of my posts where within a type of text box, while the background was separate to it.

    I'm a very visual kind of guy so as to speak. If you can't give me an actual graphic as an example, I can't really start things off. :(

    I actually found it, I don't use it at all anymore, but this is my old blog:

    http://iamglados.blogspot.com.au/

    See how the text is sort of in a box, instead of just directly on the background? If you did something like that it could make it easier on the eyes, a bit easier to read.

    So should it be something along a mere text box border? imo if its a colored text box, everything will be screwed if not careful. anyway will try and find css for this kind of thing. Either that or template page has it. Hopefullly not the Dynamic view crap srsly. :S
