    First impression is that the squiggly thing that follows the mouse is annoying.

    I'll be honest I didn't like it at all, the first page didn't load properly for me, the gimmicky javascript is very annoying, some links have mouse overs and some don't, there is no flow in terms of the page naming, some have been named completely in capitals which I think is poor planning.

    And finally the graphics are not very good quality...

    I guess silky has taken the thread title too seriously.

    I agree with SilkySmooth in most points, so long as the page is viewed with M$ IE. In lynx, it's actually quite OK, apart from some weird things, like the "Forum" link being called "Share with your peers" and a nice rendering of their URL on top of the page as
    Code:
     CIW HomePage HomePage   HomePage   HomePage
    (for CIW, maniac, ., com). Of course, the "More Links" thing is completely invisible, but, more than making up for the lack of it, so is the stuff that follows the mouse.

    I'm on a cable modem and your About Us page never did download...just kept flashing that it might take awhile.

    That little menu on the side doesn't really go with the rest of the site...

    oh wait...the about us thing finally loaded. That's pretty nice looking, not really functional for anything, though...

    I like it


    Yeah, I quite like the page - not too much info in one hit

    For some reason takes longer to load up into Netscape 6 (anyone notice this?)

    Also the whole look is different in NS and not as good in IE - esp where color borders slice through a block of text, changing the contrast and making it less... er.. striking.

    I like the JS notes tab to the left, but maybe it's a bit too big and bolshy, (an error on Lennin's part and maybe an error on yours)

    Marks out of 10 - I give it 7

    Oh yeah, and why does the theme change when you navigate down to lower level?
