I OCD sometimes. This is one of them but in the process I turned that last splash page to be fully image free. Its now entirely in CSS+HTML.

It also shows up much nicer across more platforms according to Adobe’s BrowserLabs and Browsershots.
Few cool things I learned from this: you can do pretty cool gradient and other effects like shadows in CSS. Have a look at this Gradient Generator. Pretty neat.
Lastly, not sure how long Web Fonts have been around but they’re pure awesomeness. Here’s a good tutorial on CSS3 web fonts.

The thermostat in question is by Globe I bought at XS Cargo a while back for under $20
