Needed: layout feedback

I'm getting around to changing my layout- take a look at what I've got done so far. Still need to add a header and my links to the top.

What I need to know is:

-Does it look weird with your browser/resolution?
-is it too wide?
-any opinion on the colors? too dark, too bright, too blah?

So check it out and then do my poll:

I tend to keep layouts up anywhere from 6 months to a year, so please do say if you hate something ^__^

I'm viewing it in Firefox, and I like the colors and everything. But the boxes in white with the border aren't on the middle tan part of the background. Although when I shrink the size of my browser window, they move on to the tan part of the background. I'm not sure if that made any sense. -_-
I get what you're saying - the margins need to be adjusted so the entries are positioned correctly for all resolutions *nods* So central alignment needs fixing. Thanks muchlies - I don't want to implement anything permanently till bugs are worked out :)
Yes, what she said. Your entries are aligned on the left and not in the center, which I assume is what you're going for?

Also, the curved borders only show up on the right side and not on the left. I don't know if that's intentional or not but I've enclosed a cap just in case. ;)

There was a clash with the code for width and margins, I think. I've adjusted them and loaded the changes - any improvement?

The screencap helped me figure out what was the problem so kudos ^__^
Oops. Sorry, I didn't see your reply until now! *kicks gmail* I checked but it still looks the same. *kicks LJ*
Lol, that's fine XD Could you give it a check one last time? If you're using firefox, check it in IE too - just want to make sure that it's cause of the resolution and not the browser. If its still weird, I'll holler over at s2smoothsailing :)
Ah! It's perfectly centered now! In both Firefox and IE. It looks lovely. :D

Only thing is the links under 'Particularly Shiny' and 'Links out of town' only show up in FF and not IE.

Wow, get rid of one problema nd another shows up >__> and its in the latest IE too! Will bug the comm now X(

It's always a pain coming up with new headers - though I've realised DeviantART usually saves the day, lol.
If it's not one thing it's always something else. XD

At least you're aware of them, right? It's better than not knowing and maybe if you figure it out this time, next time it will (hopefully) be easier. :D
Sorry for not being more helpful, but i actually like your current header very much. (Apart that it seems one or two pixels out of your entry column for now?)
Not that I'm not sure that you come up with something very worthy yet again. :)
I just the urge for something new after several months :) And I still haven't found a header image I'm excitd about - granted I haven't been looking at the stock image sites but lets see.

If all else fails I'll try translating my current header to the new style :)
