...but the text is a little harder to read.
That was one of my biggest concerns. Not sure how to fix that, but I will play with it and see what I can do.
#1 could be an atom with a very slow electron.
LOL... okay, I get the message
I'd go with #2 because it makes puts everything into a defined space rather than floating on and blending into the rest of the page... plus it has stars
I didn't like the way the image looked like it was just thrown into the page when it had the black background, so I was tending toward the first one, but it seems unanimous that others prefer the second option, so I will work with the second one, and try adding a frame around it so hopefully it won't look so much like it was just thrown onto the page.
Thanks everyone for your feedback!
