    It's your monitor catching up to the image. Perfectly normal.

    Are you saying not all machines experience the psychedelic strobe effect your background created on mine?

    Dude - cool theme...I like the strobing! Thought I was having a flashback... no seriously its probably because it scrolls with the page as opposed to being position:fixed, no?

    EDIT: also fwiw, the search field breaks out of its box on ff 1.04 on mac osx..other than that - cool:)

    eragle, you should probably set your background graphic "fixed" in the css, like this: background: #fff url(images/background.gif) fixed repeat 0% 0%;. That would stop the strobe/flicker. (Note: "repeat" isn't really necessary, it's the default. You also probably should be listing the horizontal postition first - "left" is actually 0% - and then the vertical position - "top" is actually 0%.)

    Thanks vkaryl. The theme is still a bit "dirty" as far as code goes. I released sooner than I intended so I could get started on a redesign of my site.

    Well, it's neat, but it's hard to "watch" right now, if you know what I mean! I know how it is when you've got themes sprouting everywhere though.... have fun, and let us in on when the site redo is finished!
