It looks fine at 1600 x 1200 ;-)
But I immediately switched to the user plain Times Roman font setting to be
able to read it without eye strain.
Which shows the impossibility of pleasing many of the people much of time.
I don't find the new Boost site appearance an real improvement over the
previous plain vanilla version.
I think we should stop obsessing about appearance and concentrate on content
- which is already pretty good.
