I wouldn't compare it to different websites. This is OUR website and we 
should agree on it, no matter what size. I now miss the "search" box 
that could be in the header as well.

Please note that "shrinking" the masthead will also take the "air" out 
of the design and I suspect that it will give a cluttered and crammed look.

And don't forget you guys voted for the "blocks", so you have to live 
with it. ;-)

I fully agree. This is our home page and the eye catcher. Other pages 
will not have these green blocks, so don't worry.

I resized the page to 1024 x 768 and it still works well and leaves 
plenty of space for the content.
I assume that the majority of (potential) users will be developers that 
will have screens at that resolution or better. So I'm all for a minimal 
"best" resolution of 1024 x 768 and improved aesthetics.

Bye, Helma
