blue crack hurting eyes

I aspire to be a blue crack addict one day. This site is massively addicting in a good way. But I don’t know if I’m the only one who has trouble actually reading the site because of the color scheme. On my computer at home I have changed the settings to black and white so it doesn’t hurt my eyes as much, but whenever I try and get my fix from another computer I remember how hard it was to read before some kind soul told me how to change the settings.
Does anyone else have this problem?
Is there anything else that can be done about it (I don’t like messing with the settings on other peoples computers; they tend to not look kindly on that)?
If not, I’ll just be quiet about it.

I know, I know, I like blue crack. I promise I do. It’s just so hard to see. I kid you not, I was on the site for less than thirty minutes at someone’s house with the blue and my eyes are still a bit sore. I know my eyes suck; you don’t need to tell me that. But, but Bono has a problems with his eyes too, so go easy on me.

No worries. It just made me laugh.

I don't find this particular colour/design combo hard on my eyes (now U2.com is quite another story), but I remember the screens at one place I worked made my eyes spasm. It was awful. So I do understand.

black and white works better for me at u2.com as well. I even have my computer at work set on black and white and font so big that my coworker can read it from her desk!

I don't think I could refer to myself as a "black crack addict."

What about "Puke green and burnt orange crack addict?"

It does have a certain ring to it.
