|This is Kvetch! 2.0, launched in March of 1998.
I wanted something a little lighter and less intense than the black. I also added a live chat feature, which meant adding additional layers of complexity to the interface.
This time around I drew my inspiration from an old reel-to-reel player I saw in a second hand store. I had originally wanted it to be chrome, but that's almost impossible to pull off while staying true to the 216 color web palette.
Still, I'm quite pleased with the revision. It now feels less like a place and more like a device, and that's what I wanted.
