    I like the site; but my I had to enable my block up popper to go to it; other's might just think its borked. I've only been to one other site that had its entire contents in a window like that; I'm entirely anti that whole theory. I despise sites that take away my ability to resize and use toolbarls; and won't visit their sites a second time.

    Another thing, I can't read that italicized white text on the lightish blue background - maybe others can, tho.

    All that being said remember the first line - I like the site. I think the design is cute and well laid out, just a few minor modifications (like leaving it in the main window and making the text easier to read) and it'd be perfecto.

    For some usability tip, you need to warn your visitors that you are popping up the site in a new window. Personally, I'm one of the people who DESPISE it when a website commanderes my browser and starts popping up windows unless I am expecting it.

    What is the dimension of the popup as well. If you're over 770 or so pixels, it'd be a hassle for 800x600 visitors to view the site. You may want to add a javascript to center the popup after warning them.

    Take a look at www.ultrashock.com

    They offer/warn a popup to either a window, the current browser or full screen browser. But they tell you before they do it.

    ok, the warning sounds like a good idea. i'm only using that set up because of my layers and the absolute values....if i make it full screen it will rearrange everything...so i'm gonna keep the set up but i'll add the warning.....
