    I just published my new website today. The url is www.stuckups.com. I'm wondering if anybody is noticing a considerably slow load time for every page on the site??? I know it must be something I did in the design process. Most of the site was created in Photoshop so I'm guessing the images that comprise the top part are what's causing the problem. Does anybody have any suggestions on how I can speed things up?

    Thanks in advance!

    ok i guess for a table-based layout, but i would at least center the site. I'm at 768x1024 and its hugging the left side.

    wow ... LOTS of images in there. Most of them could have been one simple background.

    1- The menu could easily be achive with CSS.
    2- no DOCTYPE - how are the browsers suppose to know how to read your code?
    3- <title> index </title> ... not very informative. Search engines love the title element
    4- Table-based layout with spacer gif's are outdated. Do yourself a favor and learn CSS
    5- <font> should be replace by CSS

    on good side ... yes... there is a good side I think the design is very nice. I would somehow elongate those curves to continue off with whatever screen res the user has. It looks cutoff this way.

    Holy sliced up JPEG Batman!!!!!!!

    There are way to many images in there. I visibly aged in the time it took to load!

    I've not seen someone use <font> for ages... I though those days were dead. They should be!

    Get looking at some CSS showcase/tutorial sites. See what's possible and never...ever use <font> again.

    As it stands... A piece of toast will validate as better HTML than this site.
    No ma'am, we in IT don't have a sense of humor we're aware of.

    That last line is too funny!
