I agree with you isaac, partly, but here's my pow (oh no,
not again :-):

the khaki scheme is soft on the eye, everything is smooth
and silky
however the red scheme (and partially the blue scheme as
well) is a little harsh on the eyes, and I'm afraid that it
will be even more so, if you darken the background, things
need to be smoother and not too dark.

will have color suggestions later tonight

*the interfering one rests*

background (try at least

internal style in shades

black for
| headings, dark red for links (and bright red for hover).
