Hmmm, the bar should not move vertically (but will adapt to window's
size horizontally). I chose it so it can align with the main central
column, but this can look back for other parts of the site. I just
fixed the left margin, I will fill the empty centralHeader space with
some feeds/tweets/fb shortcuts, but that's for another day.

Its a matter of tastes, many sites nowadays have a "fixed" main
central window and fill the empty sides with a pattern. I find that it
wastes space, but I have no strong opinion on that.

Tried it. It looked... dirty and sad, but I am not an artist.

They do, however I do not think that I can find a layout that will
satisfy everyone's tastes. Well, except if you can point me to a site
that does, I will take inspiration from it :)
