The Storm - "Buckle your seatbelt, Dorothy..." (http://www.angelfire.com/mo2/cbch21/index2.html)

I've been lurking around the net for a while and finally decided to put online everything I've learned so far. Above is my very first site, can someone let me know what they think?It's coded for IE5+/Win only, so please excuse.

:D

yeah, i've been to your various sites on more than one occasion. the only thing that bothers me, is that you block people with other browsers, from even getting in. that's a pain in the butt. especially since your site works fine in mozilla. other than the browser blocking, the site's really nice

since you seem to be a fellow countryman I don't want to be too harsh, but I detest chromeless windows, the first window after clicking "The Storm" took forever to load, and much of the type (like the links) is very small. I have good eyes, but that gives me a headache... Layout and concept very nice, by the way.

Block other browsers? In Moz and Opera 7 I get this page:
http://www.angelfire.com/mo2/cbch21/xBrowser.html
In Opera 6 I get a blank white page.
In Netscape 4 I get a black page with an iframe containing Anglefire's 404.
In IE5 I get more JavaScript errors popping up than I can be bothered to close.
In Lynx I get in fine after fighting some frames off. Is this a site for text browsers maybe? :)

In that case - lose the frames. Not popular among text browser folks. :D

Thank you! :D

I't not really my first design... it's my second - that's been upgraded for 7 years. :eek:

i would say the only downside (as posted above) is the slow loading through the chromeless. :D

Slow loading, huh?

I'm on a T1, so can't see it (loads in ~10 seconds). What's everyone else on?

Just wondering...

Chromeless windows aren't XP friendly are they? I read once on dynamic drive when I was going to use the script they had there for it that it wasn't so I didn't do it.

:confused:

[edit: I left the window open and loading while I typed up this post, so when I whent back to look at it :eek: I was shocked that it hadn't loaded at all..
Sorry Quiet Storm but I didn't even look at your page... wouldn't even if it had something I wanted. WAAAY to long a load.

56k by the way.

Quiet Storm's a seasoned pro imo :D

Very nice page, there seem to be a scripting error, I didn't look for it but otherwise I like it alot.

Pretty nice but the scrolling area is a bit small. I can deal with it though.

By the way... take off two hits on your "no war counter" for my visits... as I support the war... but thats a whole other issue.

Im on 56K with windows XP and the page didn't take long. about 30 seconds.

Maybe I was lucky :p

Using auto-translation, especially from altavista, is definitely bad idea. I've read your page in Russian - it's awful. :(
Nice design, btw :)
