As you may have noticed, I've edited the site so it's not so incredibly stretched out on wide screen monitors.
My own monitor died on me recently and after getting a very wide screen, I noticed the site doesn't look very good on it. After checking other sites I decided on the current width.
For those on small screens, let me know if this becomes a problem viewing things. If so though, the other color themes (can be chosen to the right) are still the same as before the change and I may decide to make a seperate 'width' choice like the colors.
