I'm not sure why there would be a need for a different theme based on
the screen size/resolution. It should scale appropriately to your
resolution. TBH, I find it a bit funny as I've gotten both "You must
have a huge screen when you designed this" and "You must have a tiny
screen when you designed this". I actually go between testing this on
my 22" widescreen and my 55" TV (although both are widescreen).

I would like to see screenshots with annotations to what you don't
like. I've been tweaking it a bit these last few days and I'm open to
changes. Although I'll be unavailable to make changes again until
Monday as I'm leaving tonight to go on vacation.
