Phil, if in a year he's doing fsck-all to keep the site maintained, I'll 
buy you dinner at Tiny's.

Or fixing it.

I've been maintaining David's design for quite a long time, and not
wholesale replacing it, in part because I wasn't so egotistical as to
believe I could improve on the aesthetics.  Anthony comes waltzing in,
and you _know_ his sense of artistic design is pedestrian at best, and
he even acknowledges that fact, and suddenly you're in a hurry to have
him shitcan an existing site design that you haven't even yourself studied.
