"Why?" you may ask.
While the computer at work that I am doing most of my journal entries and replies to folks' posts and comments is a nice, snazzy new system with all the cool features that one could ask for from a computer, the system I am using at home is... Well, let's just say that it's not as stylish as one would like, and it was taking forever to load the webpage of my LJ (or anyone else's for that matter). Not to mention at times, the system was freezing on me and so forth. So it's back to the old, original style which is fine and dandy, and works well for me.
Besides, you're not interested in the snazzy look of the journal with bells and whistles, right? You're reading my LJ for the content? Right? :)
