    Looks neat but me thinks it could stand a little area where the colors contrast more sharply between stories.

    It looks great! But are there other themes? The problem with your screenshot is the contrast. There is no contrast for the article titles. This makes it very hard for someone who has problems with his eyes.

    I hope in this new version, the bug that makes my preferences not to stick (well, they stick, but are not applied) is fixed.

    (Rob, I have 'nested' in my settings, however, I always see comments as threaded. what gives?)

    I am shocked to see you're using the same gkrellm theme as I do. And soon everyone will have this nice thing on his/her desktop and I have to find another one to be unique man!

    BTW my gkrellm panel is longer than yours 🙂

    Not good at all. Change the color of the text.

    Light grey text on slightly lighter grey background?

    Hmm.... non-optimal for me at least.

    Some more contrast please.
