This style is based off of Nicer New Gmail but it's really more of a slash and burn approach.
NO COLORS except tiny bit of red and yellow and some blue I can't get rid of.
I know just enough CSS to be dangerous and not enough to really make things work correctly. Some things it
chokes on:
- tabs! I don't use them so who cares what they look like
- hangout/chat tab - I disabled this as soon as they added it, maybe it's blue, I don't know

if passed, Congress would voluntarily give up its power to appoint its own copyright advisor and assign it to

If I remove these lines (they are optional) I get an error stating "The page isn’t redirecting properly. An error occurred during a connection to This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."
4. If I hardcode these URLs in wp-config.php to be an HTTPS URL, I receive the same error.
5. In both cases, if I am forcing HTTPS within the interface, my site loads without stylesheets and other things (because they are being served with HTTP URLs and can no longer be found) and I can't load the admin
