Hi Folks,

great work you allready done here, but i've got
something that could be improved.

some of might already have experienced that dark green
and dark red are colors which both are hard to
distinguish from the black color of already downlaoded
chunks.

Why not change the colour of aviable parts from bright
red (not aviable) over yellow (med aviable) to bright
green (lot's of sources)

this is how it will work:
x in range from 0 to 510

0 <= x <= 255
rgb(255,x,0);
256 <= x <= 510
rgb(510-x,255,0);

just select the number of steps between bright red and
bright green.
then
dx = 510 / numberOfSteps;
x = dx * aviableScore;

    It's an idea, but I'm not really too keen to change the colouring
    scheme like that and introduce and additional colour (ie.
    yellow), because I think this would confuse people even more
    than the current scheme.

    However, I plan to make the progress bar colours configurable
    at some point, then you can just change them to something
    which looks better on your system. (This will be done only
    after we've changed the options format from binary to ascii
    though).

    Cheers
