Change this bit in wp-content/plugins/eventcalendar3/ec3.css:

.ec3_eventday a {
 color:#a00 !IMPORTANT;

I don't think it makes sense to do that. What happens if that day has more than one post?

I can see why people keep asking for this. Personally, I think the best solution would be to get the archive template to redirect to the post page if the loop only contains a single post. That's beyond the scope of the EC plugin though.

I can't find the calendar on your page, so I can't see what you're talking about. You are probably talking about the 'spinner' - it's an animated GIF that is turned on while we're waiting for the next month to load. The file is wp-content/plugins/eventcalendar3/wait.gif. Perhaps the GIF doesn't look right on your background?

To disable the spinner just comment out (//) wp-content/plugins/eventcalendar3/ec3.js line 202. So that it looks like this...

 //   set_spinner(1);
