Brent called to congratulate Leo on his Webby nomination. You can vote on it at vote.webbyawards.com here.

Brent also wants to know the best way to make his screen darker to make it easier to read in Linux. Leo says that Gnome is what Leo uses. He likes to flip the window so it has dark backgrounds and white letters. That won't stop a website from changing it in his browser, though. He'll have to modify the style sheet in his browser to reflect that, and that's harder to do.

Chrome makes an extension called Dark Mode for Google. It can also change the style sheet for him. Firefox uses one called Stylish. He can also get it at UserStyles.org
