Im creating this site to offer my services... its far from done, started it the other night, no real content yet, but what do you think so far? The main text i just took from another site to fill in some space for now. Im working on content now, so if you check back a few times, it might be updated.

Well, as far as the external design goes (the part you look at), it's very clean... very well composed. I really like it.
The downside: You use tables for layout. Don't do that. You can achieve identical results using XHTML 1.0 and CSS 2, meanwhile cutting down the size of your website by about 50-60% judging by your code.
Also, by making your site standards compliant, you will be able to provide your pertinent information (being the company it looks like it is, this is important) to nearly every single browser, Palm, cell phone, screen reader, etc., on the planet.
Think about it...

I think the site looks excellent -- I would make the image to the right either larger or more prominent -- The painting you did to feather the image has caused it to lose some of it's pop. Bring some back into the center of the image and I think it'd be fine.
Great job, but the CSS would be fantastic to impliment and definately more standard compliant.

how about that? I changed the image to an iceberg... is it obvious that its an iceberg?

It would be really nice if you'd invest some time in exploring what CSS could do for presentation and layout; you seem to keep ending up with endless nested tables, and that really isn't necessary.

I liked the design... Can't think of anything to improve visually.
I can't find the iceberg you're talking about!!

The menu seems a little out of place compared with the rest of the site, otherwise, it seems fine.

In Opera 6.0 your drop down menu fails. You still have the normal nav links to work with, but unfortunatly Opera doesn't recognize the change in background color and your links become invisible.
In both Moz 1.2a and Firebird 0.6 when your menu is moused over the cursor does not change to a hand but rather stays as an arrow.
Your page is without a Doctype and you should put your CSS in an external file rather than having it in the head section on each page (though you may just have it this way for development reasons).
And like everyone else has said, you may wish to explore using CSS and XHTML for your page. It could be done easily without the use of tables.
On the looks of the page: It is clean and looks nice, but I feel it is somewhat like everyother corporate site out there. Also, the date that you put on the page is kind of confusing as it makes me wonder whether your welcome message was written on the date or if the date is just there to look cool.
I do rather like your logo though :)
As final statement: asp? yuck! me likey php. :D
