    Overall, I like it. One point is that the main content area looks sort of half empty, as the left column extends all the way to the bottom. I'd consider another block of 3 content areas below the existing 3.

    Nice and clean, be interesting to see how it renders on a 800 x 600 resolution - do the gey center blocks get pushed out?

    Overall, a nice and clean site, very un-offensive and navigatable.

    Good work, keep it up!

    It looks clean and nice. I think optimizing the border will be better.
    Good job and keep going!

    It does not look right in FF. The main image overlaps the wording.

    There are big problems viewing in Firefox.
    My screen res is 1680 x 1024 and I have a horizontal scrollbar !!
    Also the menu is underneath the body text.

    I have the same problem as above in both Firefox and IE6 with a 1152 x 864 res. If you can fix that and make the fluid layout work properly it will be a good site.

    I like the colours and the simplicity. Text is good size and easy to read.

    sorry dude, but there is anything wrong with your css!

    XP SP2, IE, 1280x800 screen and the layout looks horrible. fix that, it should be a stylesheet problem, you changed maybe a little bit and deleted an important tag...

    another point: what's your business? a good site always 'tells' you a little bit about the product/service, maybe a short introduction. change the startpage, put only the important stuff on it. the user will click through your site if he wants more informations.

    In order to improve usuability I'd have placed a meniu to left side of your layout.

    my first impression was I liked the look and the feel.

    the logo and the header are nice and clean.

    colors and fonts are good.

    the layout and navigation menu is what threw me. For a liquid layout it is very narrow on my monitor, with waty too much padding on the sides. I didn't like the navs being on the bottom of the page.

    viewed in IE 6 on a pc running xp <-- yuck. I want my MAC at work!!

    very nice, it looks very professional right now. Keep the way it is, and edit all the text for your use, otherwise, nice.

    i just viewed the site again at home on a mac running mozilla 1.5 and the site looks GREAT.

    Since most of the world, excluding programmers and web developers/designers and a few other geeks are going to be viewing your site on a PC runninig IE6, I'd say you have some serious problems to fix.

    But on the good side, I had to open and run this version of Mozilla (rarely used) so I could run sitepoints forums because it looks like crap running on my latest version of safari. (everything pushed to the left and real narrow) on a 14 inch iBook.

    So you see the moral of the story is even those who design and push the latest standards, still screw up and cannot control how a site will look on every machine.

    If your target audience is that narrow (ff, mozilla, opera users) leave it the way it is, while the rest of the world (majority) quickly move on to the next site.

    I like the site - very pleasing to the eye. But content wise I was confused with the big blog box below. Maybe make your content headlines alittle clearer or make the boxes different sizes? Beautiful headline and colors.
