Hi Abhimanyu,

Thanks for bringing this up. I’ll change the color as soon as its possible.

It seems that I made a mistake when I deployed that version of the
homepage [0] and the texts should be in a different color [1].

It was already in my TODO, but unfortunately, I cannot change this right
now. I’ll do that right after i’m done with a major server refactor that
i’m working on.

Also, all your feedback is welcome.

Regards

Renoir
