Has anyone done a nice replacement stylesheet for the new forums? Not very colour-blind friendly!

Now I'm not one of those militant "I have a problem so I want it my way" people, but for a colour-blind person, the new forums literally cause a headache, even with fiddling with controls on monitor.
For example, the light orange on the background is readable, but uncomfortable, and where there is a link in the middle of bright red headline text, yes, don't laugh, but I really can't see the link! The only way I know it is there is to move the mouse over the text hoping it might go underlined.

I'm happy to use a custom stylesheet to over-ride it on my PC, but with roughly 1:10 men being colourblind, I was hoping someone else might have done one already, to save me re-inventing the wheel :)

yes, i find the color sceme a bit hard on the eyes as well.
My LCD is a bit faded here, but even on other LCDs i find the new colors to be a bit hard to read. too light.

other than that ... site is MUCH MUCH MUCH faster than the old one. Good Job!
