    Well, I've been working on this site for oh say an hour tops, pics n all

    And I threw it together. So far so good. I know needs so major touchup HTML wise but its all coming along nicely

    http://mac15.ambitiouslemon.com/ let me know what you think

    PS. the links don't work yet

    Looks nice.... there seems to be more and more sites with this "simple" touch. But the pixelated words are kind of blurry... need to make it more pixelated, if you know what I mean.

    Check out my test site.

    not a bad start, but you've got a long way to go.

    My suggestion to you is to flesh it out a bit more, add all or most of the links and then come back and tell us. There really is little to comment on unless there is actually something to have an opinion about.

    Not only turn off the anti-aliasing - you're going to need to create the image as a gif and then enlarge it. The png format you're using (I'd love to know why) is true color and when you enlarge an image it interpolates.

    Here's a fast test I did - not the same font but you get the idea. And I made it a gif with 2 colors and then enlarged it 400 percent.

    Good luck,

    yeah, wtf I was looking at the site saying 'what are they talking about, there are no links, just 1 image' so I guess I'm not (entirely) crazy

    Kepp going... looks good so far...

    My mantra when I'm working: "Better and better, better and better...okay just a little more...that's good! Good good good!"

    or

    When I'm done:
    "That'll do, pig!" :D

    Just kidding about the last part. :D
