    I love the design! A few things I'd like to point out:

    • I think it seems a bit odd to have orange in the logo and then not have it anywhere else in the design. Could you incorporate it into links, tags, or something?

    • It needs a simple favicon. I hate going to sites and seeing the little blank page icon, it feels unfinished to me.

    • It takes a while to load. Most users will leave if the load time is > 5 seconds.

    • Possibly add a | to the page titles? For example Webfari | About, Webfari | Contact, etc.

    • I'm all for simplicity, but it feels like theres a bit too much white space. Maybe you could add a texture or background image (not one thats too overpowering, of course) to give it a more completed feel?

    Other than that I love the design.

    Thanks for the critique. Its only been 5 days since the site has been up. It needs a lot of work.

    I will make a favicon.

    I will change the Logo color or perhaps use the tags or catagories orange.

    I am not too sure about loading time since I have tested with many other computers and it seemed fine. But I will look into it.

    But other than that, thanks and please book mark! I will have many useful articles everyday!

    At two minutes of load time on dial-up, I gave up waiting and closed your page.

    The W3C validator at http://validator.w3.org/check?charse...w.webfari.com/ reported 9 errors. You might wish to correct some of them.

    I worked for 35 years in a university IT department with the best equipment available. I had a multi-processor desktop computer with two-screen display and a pair of T1 lines to the internet. I didn't need much of anything at home, so an old Pentium II with Windows 98 on dial-up was OK for what little I did at home.

    Then the economy went sour, I lost my 35-year job and the great 'net access and my pay check. None of the cable / dish / whatever internet stuff will work on my old machine and I don't have the money to upgrade. I'm not complaining; I use what I have.

    If you REALLY want to laugh, I used to do it with a Comodore 64 at 1200 baud!

    The W3C report may be crap, but it's still worth considering.

    Validation may be overrated, but having well-formed markup isn't. Many here would not assist you should a problem pop up without valid code because it simply solves so many problems.
