I'm not really a friend of those grayed out sections - IMO they look
too much like the "disabled" look in BeOS and elsewhere. Maybe a
smaller font size would be enough to keep the attraction on the content
that matters?

Well, you're right. There is a parallel between the color and being "inactive". My primary concern is that there is too much information on the front page and the most important content should get more visual attention, somehow.

I'm dead serious. It's too much! I've seen many people (including
myself ;) ignore the whole front page of a website because it was too
overloaded. Jorge, please have another look.
