    Alertra, Use of Background Image

    I've been working feverishly on the many good suggestions I've recieved on my site, I hope to have an updated posted very soon.

    This will seem like a very small issue, but I'm kind of hung up on it and a few responses would settle if for me:

    I've had comments that my background image is distracting when it's outside my main table, and when it's inside. Please click the following four links and tell me which way to go.

    1. http://www.alertra.com (bg everywhere like it was)
    2. http://www.alertra.com/?bg=out (bg outside the table)
    3. http://www.alertra.com/?bg=in (bg inside the table)
    4. http://www.alertra.com/?bg=none (nada)

    Thanks a bunch.

    Of all I prefer the out. The background texture is great for outside the table, not having it in means the text is clear and easily readable.

    Again, good stuff on a great service!

    btw, is it live yet? Can I register my site? I used to use Netwhistle and they were amazing but they had the ire to try and charge me

    Thanks for the response, and positive feedback. Please send all negative feedback to my other address bgates@microsoft.com.

    It is live, you may definitely register your site for once per hour checking, and I won't have the ire to charge you.

    By the way, this question was supposed to have been in the form of a poll, but I haven't done that before and had trouble with the form. I think I inadvertantly ended up submitting a couple different things. Hopefully it won't end up being confusing.

    I decided to go with background texture outside of the page only. I've updated the code so the links I gave above will no longer have any affect on the background.

    Thanks.
