    by the way you might think that why I'm asking for review now, considering that archives date back to feb. The answer is that until a few days back this blog was managed by someone else and he handed over the blog to me a day before yesterday. since hten I've upgraded wp from 1.2, personalised a theme, put in all the plugins, reformetted all the old posts, etc.

    I'd make the space between the sidebar and the main box a tad smaller. And the text of the last post on the page is a little close to the lowest border.

    But I think the side looks really good and fits the content.

    Do I get a blessing *and* appreciation now ? ;)

    I would suggest changing the links color to make them more obvious. Like in the side bar. A slight change in color or some other way of distinguish them.

    Sorry, I did not see that you asked about changing the sidebar links until just now. It looks like you have figured it out from look at your site. You change the background color of the side bar right?

    I learned alot about CSS by using the developer toolbar for Firefox. It give you the ability to change the CSS styles on a web page and see what the change make instantly. You can get the plugin here - https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=60
