DOS_FX Theme

[ DOS_FX Theme ] It’s pure DOS, Baby! Behold, locked in a laboratory clean-room for hours with only archaic operating systems at my disposal, I found myself amazed by the sheer and utter uncompromising utility of a Windows DOS console. After a few traceroutes I found myself recreating the precise DOS aesthetic using CSS and XHTML. Basically same font, same colors, font sizes, and so forth. The rest is history. After work, I fired up the WordPress machine and hit the codes. A few hours later, the DOS_FX theme was born. DOS_FX is ultra-lightweight, color-safe, image-friendly, and XHTML strict. Other than that, it’s so cool because it reminds us that DOS is really very special.

Mastodon social is a trip. Glad I found it.
As a strict rule, I never use cache plugins on any of my sites. They cause more problems than they solve, imho. Just not worth it.
