Out of the Blue

As discussed in this space and in the forums yesterday, in order to really be able to test this new format it was time to just take the plunge at put it up live. Feel free to offer feedback about the design in general, ways you feel it could be tweaked, and as important as anything, please let me know if there are any problems, as there are surely some browser/OS combos that it has not been tested on. Depending on how all this goes, I may or may not be switching back and forth between the old and new formats as we work through all this.

My initial comment so far is that that's a hell of a lot of wasted real estate in your top space now. Apart from your logo, it's almost 3 whole inches of *wasted* vertical space (on my 19" at 1152x864). We have the logo on the left, a whole horizontal spread of those pointless falcon-wing looking blue lines that could be much smaller to save room for other stuff, then another huge blank space under the logo to make room for the ad on the right. Blegh! That's way too much space for nothing.

Surely it can be tightened up somehow?
