The Yellow skies are now blue and B&W is no longer sepia. The best part is that they are both free from the QuickGamma site. Google is your friend when it comes to fixing this type of problem.

Highly recommended by the wolves.

Worked today on changing the site theme for Sleeping Wolves. Needed something fluid / liquid to account for all the differences in monitor resolutions out there. Will be finishing up over the next few weeks but I’m pretty happy with the new look.
