yes .. you are right, they are still not the same. I'll change that,
to see how it looks.

And ..I just noted something, the square color in the messages is
affected, it seems not to be the same, make something transparent
until you reach the tone you like, than set the exact color without
makes it transparent. Note that they are not totally over white tone.

I think that we can try it too :D. Note that, maybe it is not exactly
the same because the random way it was created.
