I'm liking the new changes, took me a while to adjust to the change perhaps. But I still find it slower.

I like the blue/gray in the background and the way the main part of the page has a shadow around it so that it stands out like reading a page of parchment. I haven't seen that done before.

What is the image in the bar at the top?

There's a swirling vortex in the center that's covered by the ad and also something that appears to be...er...something...on the bottom (both framed in orange in the below image.)

I sense contest potential...what is the banner image on top of the Site? :scratch:

*NOTE: Coda in particular is very reliant on transparent .png file support. Internet Explorer versions less than IE7 cannot display the transparancy correctly. Internet Explorer tends to be rapidly deployed therefore the chances are low that someone will not see it correctly. Nevertheless, it is mentioned here in case you are concerned about supporting older browsers with your blog.

You know none of those light ones have a cool picture in the background, or cool backgrond colours...

Working on anymore?

Is there a way to filter out the "bots" on "who's on line"? They show up as "registered users".
