no, not gaudy at all!

the 'powered by..' has always been a great idea... 
the
pride involved in using apache!  :)

try left justifying everything.  <CENTER> is so mid-
90's...  also, include a simple stylesheet that will 
force a particular font and 'feel' for the pages...  i
know, in *all* your spare time!  :)

am i alone in thinking that in general the open-source
community has design-phobia??  and
i'm not refering to your page.  when a user sees
that 'congratulations' page, it's more about the task
at hand than the design of the page...  i'm not saying
that the apache look is bad or even gaudy.  it's just
funny to see so many open source websites that are
functional versus eye-catching.  the truth is that we
geeks are the only ones who see the pages, not the
general public... (or ms office 2000 users!  he
he...:)

for example:
www.sendmail.org  is kinda boring, but very functional
www.phpbuilder.com  is very nice
www.justlinux.com  is pretty nice
www.sgvlug.org  is kinda boring

i guess we open-source-o-philes prefer functionality
over design 'froo froo.'

your page looks fine!  ...for what it's worth!
