alright, let's ignore the grump (someone tell him to surf in netscape3 -
text is perfectly legible ;p), but take on the list of things to change.

also, someone tell him that i'm the designer and he can come around and try
and shoot me anytime.

can we start by doing 2 things:

bump text colour closer to 000000 to increase legibility
make links more obvious

our options with the links:
use blue
use underline
use white text with dark bg

blue is gonna struggle against the green bg
too much underline on small text is not the best...
white text with dark bg will look good in articles, but horrible in the
i'd suggest underline on links...

re text sizing, can we bump all text up 1px and see how it looks?
