steve_hoge: When are we going to be able to turn off the black background?

Seriously, I spend alot less time on this site than I would otherwise because the excessively high-contrast layout is so fatiguing to read.

The eye works a bit like a camera on AE with average metering mode. Looking at a predominantly black page with some white text opens the pupil, which in turn reduces the acuity of my vision (OK, I need reading glasses too). A predominantly white page with black text is easier for me to read because it looks sharper with my stopped-down pupil. An option for black vs white background would be helpful.
