I would like to ask a few questions in my defence :-)

I don't read many blogs and the ones I do read differ quite a bit, so could 
you elaborate a bit on "bloggish", so I know what to tweak?

Also, given Jean-Philippe's new mockup (dark on white, which I personally 
think is nicer BTW), I assume the main difference would now be layout, not 
color? I prefer sites where the navigation stays at the same spot, that's 
why my front page has a menu on the left as well, that's one of the other 
main differences.

Also, a question on implementation: given your care that MythWeb should be 
(at least) useable on browsers without scripting, flash etc, what's the 
concensus on this for the main website? I think my design is doable without 
all these, with getting something quite similar on all browsers (yes, I 
think IE is a main target :-)

Finally, a question for Jean-Philippe: what happens when the users resizes 
the window, or requests a larger font? Do the boxes resize, where do 
scrollbars appear (and how would these look on your gradient background?)
