You're right, it looks incomplete. :eek:

There's too much space between menu block and content for my liking.

Copy'n'paste the link into your browser ;)

You'd think anyone using :rolleyes: (*ahem* Zoobie) would have tried that :p

Your background graphics have a fuzzy feeling to it; I personally like crisp lines much better. Moreover, using such a huge background image isn't a very good approach: besides taking forever to load, even on a fast connection, it's very inflexible, which is proven by your content spilling over the border.

I strongly recommend not seeing a web page as a canvas where you paint pictures and paste text on, but approach it as a text document first, get the structure right, and then add adornment and graphics.

You should optimize it for an 800 x 600 res... and a 56k connection.

in moz1.1 (very capable standards based gecko engined browser) the content alignment and background alignment are non consistent.

I would suggest nesting your divs within a containment element, perhaps position:relative and absolute for secondaries.

The bio page forces the images (which simply must be optimized - photographic jpegs would be fine at 15-25% compression, which should shave an easy 60% off the filesize) over the underlying text and distorts the page.

Also, I'd suggest creating a page for viewing larger images rather than using a new window.

It does though look like you are heading in the right direction there, just a few glitches to iron out. Good work :)

I fixed the images (I think) made little thumbnails of them and I got the page to see the larger images up, but havent uploaded it.

.. Im workign now on the CSS thingy, but I dont seem to find a way to make the alignment consistent (Im not really good with CSS, a friend helped me a bit.. but hes not here anymore).. well Ill continue my work... =]

Hey, looking good man.

One prob though, at high resolutions your content and framing graphics don't line up properly. I attached a screenshot to show you what I mean.

IE6 1400x1050 resolution.

this may possibly be the first web site i have ever seen with actually good use of flash.
