yeah, it's purple on my machine too.  still looks good.  i came up with a
nice blue when i was playing with the combinations you can make with the
current rgb triplet for the background.  can't remember what it was now

: It is cool. Pretty easy to figure out once you
: start playing with it, too.  Are we going to set
: up lists.e and browsers.e like that?

yes, of course.  browsers is already on the same box (just a different
folder) as the main site.  all we gotta do is adjust it's location a bit and
it's ready to go.

i'm not sure what bringing lists into this will entail though.  if we can
get it moved without a problem then it'll be easy.  if not, there'll be
additional maintenance overhead when updating things that affect the
external template.
