No. You might get wax on yourself and burn it.

What are you on about? mine is normal white.

Which do you use, as in what URL?

 

I ask because http://www.google.com/ is black also, but this wouldn't effect pages like igoogle/google homepage. http://www.google.com/ig It also might not effect people who use browsers with sh*tty browser caching, if that's the case you could try a hard refresh.

 

I actually don't mind it at all. If it actually saved any energy (which it doesn't) and was normally an option, I'd use it.

Yeah, it's all for "Earth Hour". An international event where we are asked to turn off our lights for 1 hour during 7-8PM or whatever.

 

You can count me out of this, because there will be an LA Galaxy game on during that time.

Racism is not something I like to joke about, and racists aren't people I'd wish to associate with. Goodbye.

Anyone not realise that black pixels use more electricity anyway? tounge.gif

Depends on your monitor as far as I was aware, but as I'm not on a CRT, and my LCD is 22in, black would save me no energy.

Not always.

I'm not a racist. And yes it is something you like to joke about, especially with a new member like myself.

As to why we don't do this permanently - it saves no energy; modern displays use the same amount of power regardless of what they display.

To the contrary, on flat-panel monitors (already estimated to be 75% of the market), displaying black may actually increase energy usage.

 

Read much?
