For the longest time, I had been against "dark" themes on my computer. Much of the time the colors were just not optimized and so many things were hard to see because of that. That was a long time ago, and now dark themes have gotten more love than they have in the past so I have been using dark mode on my gnome desktop for close to 2 years now.
I noticed that when I posted things here and would check them, the bright whites of my own blog would destroy my whole desktop aesthetic and I'd be inconsolable for hours. Ok, maybe not that extreme, but it finally got on my nerves enough to want to do something about it.
At some point I found the Spaceduck theme for VI and have liked that. With that in mind, I am trying to apply that color scheme to arachnitech.com. It's been a while since I have done much with CSS, so things could be a little "odd" here while I tweak things.
