Modify base theme (UB Minim) to include an options page in WP-ADMIN that can manage static or rotating color palette (styles) changes, add/manage page background images, and render uploaded PNGs as higher Z-level elements (bursts,etc)
Second part is to add a third column to the layout that displays SimplePie parsed RSS feeds with the existing style sheet.
Basically add an options page to allow me to tweak the presentation layer, and mod the template to include a third column of aggregated content.
make sense ? pretty easy, i just dont have the time.
