Looks like X11 standard beige. What else would it look like?

Completely white in a white box.
Um... what?

This is completely white.
This is beige.

If these appear as the same colour, there's something seriously wrong with either your display device or your eyeballs. :o

@Mylo and Loc: Just to rule something out (or in), what does this look like to you:


It should look like this:

Looks closest to the bottom right on my laptop to me.
And on my phone too, actually.

I'm not sure why, but on my laptop, I see either the left or the right of the bottom two images, depending on what angle I view my screen at.  As was the case for Mylo and Loc, Amy's original post looks like a single white block to me.

@Loc, redpaw, and redyoshi49q: Well, there's your problem. :D You guys are using crappy TFT displays without gamma correction, aren't you? For most such displays, a gamma correction factor of 0.45 is required for colours to appear even remotely correct. Go into your display driver configuration and set your gamma correction factor to 0.45 (give or take depending on your individual monitor). This will enable your monitor to display colours (almost) correctly, at the expense of being able to display very dark colours at all. Though TFT displays can't display dark colours correctly anyway, so nothing of value was lost.

I just hope you weren't using those displays for your art. If you were, you art probably has colours reminiscent of Monet's paintings before he had his cataracts removed. Sorry.

I don’t think that this is about gamma calibration…

Amy used beige text with beige glow, you can’t see what was typed without highlighting.

I think it is, since the question is what the aforementioned beige text with beige glow actually looks like. If it looks white, or any colour other than beige, your monitor is badly out of tune. I'm pretty certain Amy is not at all surprised by the fact that beige text on a beige background is unreadable, and is more likely to be surprised by the fact that it doesn't actually look beige on uncalibrated monitors (a fact which didn't even occur to me until multiple people all claimed it looked white).

I think it's more likely people don't know what beige looks like.

Maybe, …Amy hasn't said anything other than what's in the first post, so it's difficult to be sure what's the reason for the post.

There was a Beigefoot tribe attacking the fort in one of the early Earnest P. Worrel videos. You only heard them. "Beigefoot? What kind of tribe is that?" "More like-em tan." "Like off-white." "Like color-of-wheat." The late Jim Varney did all of the voices. He was Cpl. Davey Worrel, left all alone in the fort. So he play-acted a whole army of soldiers to confound the attacking tribe.
"We go now, white man, but we be-um back."
"The coyote is a living, breathing allegory of Want. He is always hungry. He is always poor, out of luck, and friendless. The meanest creatures despise him. And even the fleas would dessert him for a velocipide."~Mark Twain
