It may just be me again, but the links across the top only have the top half of the text until you hover over them. Not so good to look at. The orange? I'll get used to it.

OK, I'm copnfused - when I use my laptop, the menu text has a paler orange strip behind it. That doesn't show up on my desktop, even though they're both using the same version of IE... Oh, the joys of modern technology!

The format seems to work best when it's opened up wide. Starts to freak out a bit when i drop below 900 pixels wide on Firefox 2.0.0.3 on my Mac.

It's going to take some getting used to. I was just on here a couple hours ago, and it suddenly turned into tie-dye! They're pushing it with the orange. I don't care for the color, but instructables has been the only place subtle eniugh to make it work. Now it looks like a paint can exploded on their HTML.

The look is ~OK, but the site now loads rocket fast! (seemed like the advertising links were slowing things down before, but the ads have changed...)

Overall, the layout is great, but why the heck is there so much orange? It looks like we never changed out of fall colors.
