    Anyone got any new/different colours for winboard or blitzin/dasher (ICC chess clients)? The default colours for winboard look like commie colours :-

    ;
    ; WinBoard 4.2.7 Save Settings file
    ;
    ; You can edit the values of options that are already set in this file,
    ; but if you add other options, the next Save Settings will not save them.
    ; Use a shortcut, an @indirection file, or a .bat file instead.
    ;
    /whitePieceColor=#ffffcc
    /blackPieceColor=#202020
    /lightSquareColor=#c8c365
    /darkSquareColor=#77a26d
    /highlightSquareColor=#ffff00
    /premoveHighlightColor=#ff0000

    I tried out a few different ones for winboard-

    /whitePieceColor=#ffffff
    /blackPieceColor=#1d1d1d
    /lightSquareColor=#d3d3d3
    /darkSquareColor=#8e8e8e

    and -

    /whitePieceColor=#ffffff
    /blackPieceColor=#1d1d1d
    /lightSquareColor=#ccbda4
    /darkSquareColor=#a88964

    but I'm not happy. Who knows what colours RHP uses?
