    It's more of a personal site than something the scale of say MacRumors but we'll have some news, reviews, and tips for OS X on it, check out TotalOSX @ http://www.powermac.at/osx (I disabled the link here because Im new to the board and not sure what your policy is on open links in here)
    Thanks.

    I assume you mean "www" not "wxw". :p

    I tested the site with Mozilla 1.0 and OS 9.

    Other than what I have been able to define as a Mozilla error, I would like to suggest a few things. But first, I found that when in the news sections I try to click on the article scroll arrows, but the arrow is behind the image picture for one of the links on the left, so I keep clicking on that instead of the arrow.

    Now, to suggestions. The OS X theme is all and well, but I was wondering if you can make the orange text with blue a little less painful to the eye (apps/download section). Second, if there is a way to scale the entire background and stuff to not look so "wide" that would be more attractive. Finally, is there something you could add at the top of the background, like the white/gray theme in OS X? It doesn't have to be file menus, but maybe you could put the links on the left up there and have the links act as pull down menus.

    Out of a 10 point scale, I'll give you a 9. You have a solid theme going and there is not too much variation that detracts from it, but these little errors and stuff can be improved to make the site look more interesting. :cool:

    funny... your site doesn't work with OmniWeb, Total OS X.

    Now, for my site: http://homepage.mac.com/g4scott

    It's actually a site for my boy scout troop, but it's all I got...

    I could post the link of my IP for my streaming server, but my ISP would sh*t bricks on me if I started to generate tons of traffic...

    hitman, are you sure you wanted to take out ALL the periods in your quote? I did suggest earlier not to have as many. Are you sure you don't want to put three at the very end of the quote?

    Scott, excellent site(s). That's about as close as perfect you can come to something along your theme. (Mozilla 1.0, OS 9)
