Scroll me to the moon

Meet my latest RSI-inducing implementation:

This is the scrollable text area required for the 'rumours' component of the bar, as well as certain other locations throughout the game UI. Having planned out the entire space station UI is a big help to me in terms of identifying problem areas -- this was definitely one of them. Another obvious problem here is the size of the scrollbar thumb. It's virtually impossible to hit with a trackpad, so I'm going to make it bigger and beefier.

So what's next for Dr. Rav? Well, I'm going to go off and watch a bit of TV and have some lunch. Because that's how I roll.

Oh, and to inspire further comments on this journal entry:

The animated GIFs make it hard to read the entry. I'm not sure if it's intentional, but it encourages readers to skim over the text and focus on the moving image. Ducks are so purty.

This is an interesting concept, that people largely raised on videogames, movies and PCP would be distracted from trying to read by a quickly moving image. [grin]

However, as you can see, there's not much to really read there; more will come out when I've actually done something more significant. At that point, I won't post animated GIFs to distract you tweakers.
