Hi Craig Colton. You said the following on 11/12/03 03:05:

Greg has pretty high resolution so he noticed it sooner then most of the 
rest @ 1024x768. I expect the max-width will be a bit bigger.

Thanks. I like the new colors (obviously, otherwise I wouldn't have 
chosen them). The header color can be adjusted a tad though. Why don't 
you experiment a bit with some colors, perhaps add some green? IIRC you 
applied the amber in the logo because I did it in a mouse over :)

Oh yeah, when's your replacement for "le chef" due? I thought you wanted 
to change it because Gerard didn't like it?
