My 2 cents and thanks to people for letting me have a look!

-    There are too many conflicting shades of blue
        - blue links on blue background, black text on blue background, blue
underlines on tabs and so on.
        - you guys like blue eh?
-    I dont mind the idea of the bar at the top, branding is fine
-    I do mind the idea that is 32 pixels in height being unused. stick the
copyright, refresh options, time of day up there, if the space is being used
more effectively, people wont mind as much. There's a ton of stuff you could
put up there and still view on a laptop..
-    No chance of getting no case sensitive object listing (or at least
having it as an option?)
-    the select/deselect all is great but changing the button is generally
considering confusing..
