But then... What nicely goes with dark green?



OK, that's somewhat hefty...


And that is still impossibly hefty!

So, simple answer is no. We have whatever it is the kind people who put
together the Wordpress theme Atahualpa 3.7.13 have done, with whatever
differentiating tweaks I've done/undone.

Suggestions for tweaks or other themes welcomed ;-)

Atahualpa is very definitely not a mobile responsive theme. However, it
is kindly enough to render nicely on my old mobile. You do then need to
zoom and scroll around to view and navigate.

An alternate mobile-friendly theme can be tried... Is there anything
that would fit with the sort of thing we have at present? The main
headache is for holding onto the calendar...

And for critique/comment, I've added another links section:

Linux Publications/Magazines
