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.
