Yeah, I didn't use the Fedora blue color, sorry about that, will be
fixing this asap and testing with the default color theme.

I will try adding that vignette or some similar thing to the left to
"flatten" the image a bit. And maybe reducing the blur a bit can also
help with the dizzyness.

I think I will be able to make it to the meeting, I will be connected
from freenode's webclient though, hope that's not a problem.

See you there!
