I am quite pathetically pleased with myself. I deleted my visitor panels a few weeks ago after they got squeezed out of the sidebar again, but I really like seeing where people have come from, so today I thought I'd go back to the Neoworx site and try again. I hadn't noticed that you can adjust the width of the panels. I took it down from 200 (mm) to 170, and hey presto! It fits! It's out of date, but that's ok- it's handsome and interesting. I may even remember some of the flags.
Aaand I changed the default colour on my desktop to silver, made a particularly fab photo of Habibi the new desktop image on my laptop and changed the font so that I could read it against the new background. Yay! There were a few hair-raising moments with large print and high contrast (Don't do it! Though it might be good for your Grandad, Trailing Spouse - a black background with monster white letters - Have you seen it?)
It may not be much to you clever people, but I think I might be getting almost competent. Yay again!
