    I think the text in the nav bar needs to be silver, the black stands out too much and draws your attention away from the body of the page.

    What is the purpose of the big silver box on the homepage? I'm pretty sure you could do something fun with that. Maybe some flash?

    You don't really need to give the server time, it's kind of a redundant feature which clutters up the page.

    The pink support box looks out of place. It doesn't really go with the rest of the theme. I'd make all those boxes white, like the two in the middle, and have images behind them. Just looks alot more fluid.

    I also get a runtime error on all the pages, on line 14? Remind me to remove that annoying microsoft debugger. Also, what's the point of the "design start button"?. It doesn't do anything, and I don't really get why it's there or what it could possible evolve into...

    You could also experiment with making your body text size a pt of 2 higher. I find that size hard to read, just doesn't flow too well.

    Oh well, that's just my opinion.

    it looks quite good!!

    some comments:

    i would recommend that you fill the big grey space on the homepage with a simple flash movie..

    There is a alot of spelling and grammer mistakes throughout the site which doesnt give you a very professional look.

    I like your graphics alot but whats the go with (c) 2003 - 2070 ..


    ditch the 'start design button' if it has no purpose.

    overall: very nice!

    I like the site but there is something that doesn't look right. It feels that the site is clutered and disconnected with every thing else. Like everyone else is saying getting rid of some of the stuff that doesn't really need to be there. Like server time ect.

    Move the quick notes in to the rest of the site. It out there by itself. But I like how you can move it around. Pretty cool.

    I think you need a lot of work up top. I think you need to have the name of your site stand out more. With some kinda logo.

    Other than that site looks good.

    peace

    I think the problem is probably that you're going at it from the wrong perspective. I find one of the key ideas in "design" is negative space, or to put it another way not to think about what you can put in but to think about what you can leave out.

    Let's take apple's design for example. On the homepage they have navigation, a spotlight feature, hot news, four more news bits, and legal info stuff.

    I find a lot that people making personal websites, such as the ones you might find hosted on geocities and free domains, try to put it as many scripts and extras as possible because it gives them an "edge". Not only does this often lead to all kinds of browser incompatibilities and script errors [although apparently not in your case], but it often clutters up the page with completely random nonsense, therefore destroying the edge and making it look very amateur.

    Psychologically, therefore, whenever I see a script that has absolutely nothing to do with the content of the site, my first instinct is to look elsewhere.

    So, back to apple's site. They follow this idea through and through. There are very few extras, but it still looks very classy.

    To summarise, there's a time and a place for 'scripts' and random things - where they are needed to increase the usability.

    Keep It Simple Sunshine!

    Hope this helps [And Remind Me To Get Out More... :S]

    i like the new design alot. It is nice and laid out and i like how everything flows. I didn't like the pop-up for the search engine not running. the big grey box is very empty. and the last thing i will coment on is that the top looks like a rip from ign.com

    When I try to view your page I get prompted for a password to access this Private Directory. It looks like your images are protected, because they don't load, and every image prompts that box.
