I've made some significant changes to the site template, so... what do you think?
Note that the semi-transparent backgrounds will only display properly on decent browsers like Firefox. Internet Explorer renders it opaque, and the wrong colour to boot. So if you think it looks ugly, check that isn't the reason first. (And if it is, take advantage of the big 'Get Firefox' button I've added to the sidebar!)
Otherwise, let me know of any bugs, problems, or just general suggestions you care to offer. (I'm thinking of cutting the blogroll back down to about half its present size. Any objections?)
