    looks pretty good, but it looks like you've basically created the template in photoshop, sliced it, and exported the html. This might be easy, but you end up with a big table and a huge number of images. It over complicates the markup and results in an excess number of server calls. Some of your images are quite large as well. The banner image alone is 73k. Maybe compress a bit more?

    for example, the left and right bars are a single images, while it can be easily implemented with a repeating background. I think your site would be very well suited to use a css layout, since it's very boxy and composed mainly of straight lines and gradients.

    design wise it's not bad, but the lines on the side complicates the layout without adding much to the experience. I find the best designs are the ones that strip away everything that does not add meaning to the design. Flare for the sake of it is.... just not good :]

    hope that helps

    It's very very narrow, and consequently the text is very small (and hence can be difficult to read) and there is a huge amount of whitespace on the left and right of the screen.

    Any reason why it's so narrow?

    I'm with seanmiller on this one. It's all too small and narrow for me. I don't find it very comforable.

    As far as the style of the site is concerned, I can imagine it's cool if that's your cup of tea. I have never been a huge fan of the style because it reminds me too much of clan websites but no doubt others will like it.

    I certainly think things need to be made a tad wider.

    it looks like somebody just got a razor blade and chopped ff the bottom of the page

    I think it is a very creative site! I do agree that it is a tad too narrow, but I'm sure others would like it...You did a good job with the design and graphics..I'm in the process of redesigning my page and I like the way you have things set up there.. Great folio!

    is there a particular reason you have more than one stylesheet
    anyway an easy way to get rid of that space at eh bottom is to place it inside a div container and set the bottom margin and padding to zero
