Nice beetle there.
It's very easy to create your own template. You can use any software to produce a good looking page, and then go in and add the pixelpost tags to the template.
Remember to put it in a separate folder and name the files correct (as they are in the default templates).
Just ask away if anything comes up.
I got to clear out some stuff at work. Next release will be a "bugfix" release, I won't introduce any grand features, but the date and time thing I will fix. Will serve it chilled in a few days, during the weekend I guess.
