In the beginnings of template modifications, I've modified the setup so the menu no longer has colors based on your settings.
Why is this a good thing? It means you no longer have to worry about color schemes that might make your blog menu unusable. This has also laid some of the groundwork for making it customizable as well. The reason is that I'm removing the band-aid coding from my rush to launch and replacing it with more modular (and more editable frankly) code.
Expect more customization features over the next week or two, including the ability to change post headlines, and various other do-dads.
