Hi Marian and all,

Thanks for posting those links. When I tried accessing the first batch
I enabled in no script and unblocked with adblock plus and still got
nothing, so I tried Opera and nothing there either. :-/

I'd vote for number 2. Number 1 looks like it would have large areas
that rely on having flash enabled (slideshow) and I'm not a fan of that.
Sometimes I'll land on a site that requires flash to see the page at
all and if it's someplace I haven't been before I usually just go away.
Not to mention TUV's desire to only include items that are 'free' vs
'proprietary' so flash isn't included in the sponsored repo's.  I know
it's 'what everyone is doing', but ...

I would also suggest variable width vs fixed width on whichever theme you end
up with, if it's possible.  I think fixed width is more prone to
break in some cases. And I wanted to add a thanks to Yury that pointed
to cmsmadesimple, I'd not heard of it before and I'm going to check it
