Guess I could add that. It's all kluged into the ZIP file at the bottom of the page but I guess it does deserve a page.

Guess I could work on the logo, as it is a little large in file size.

I've never much been a fan of the bloated displays and source code that most "modern" sites use nowadays, so it's nice to see yours is fairly neat.

Even now that I have broadband access, I still do stuff like compressing images to reasonable sizes. Broadband is supposed to be useful for downloading music, videos and large applications, not giving web developers an excuse to re-invent the wheel with shiny crap that adds little to the site functionality.

oh, and I agree with JSR, the logo is a little annoying. Not much, but it could be a bit more subtle.
The styling and source is a little more bloated than I'd like, but transparency and rounded corners are hard to do minimally at least until more browsers start supporting CSS3. For now it uses a grand total of 2.3 KB (:D) of imagery to achieve the desired effect.

Content is coming. I plan on doing a tutorial or two now that my tax return is in (plus to make a couple of plinkers to have around) and I need to finish the fuel metering page. I guess a search box would come after I have some more content...

Thanks for actually giving some suggestions. I asked for them on two other forums and nobody even bothered. :roll:

EDIT: Thanks labtec.

I frgot to ask what you would fancy up on the barrel support?

Barrel has to be detachable, because I want to be able to take it with me on my bicycle.

It's also meant to reduce barrel flex, because 2 m of 50 mm PVC hangs down quite a bit.

I want to see some modded celebs. (or other well-known people)

I'll kick off, with Ivan Skobrev :wink:

Maybe it is a good idea to do a "before and after" pic?

I wonder what job the figure at the first desk has, being apparently tasked with hitting the Ctrl key very hard in a constant "1, 2, 3, pause, 1, 2, 3, pause" cycle.

Mind you, one of the turrets is at the second desk in the second row.
I can see problems when people hang up on it during phone calls: "Are you still there?"
Does that thing kinda look like a big cat to you?

The President just left our auditorium. He got a fab tour before the speech.

Our CEO has been asked to advise him on job creation. This could be interesting as Paul has been critical of some of his policy.

Police and protesters were both in attendance.

Michelle Obama visited Slidell when I was still working for Public Operations. I called in sick the day she visited (:roll:) but the day before (talk about last minute) I got some sweet overtime cutting and edging every blade of grass in Old Town. :D

He was here.. :D

Here is his speech here..

He even managed to step in the fab for 10 minutes without wearing a bunny suit. The secret service did suit up in the white suits. Where he was in the fab, got a complete cleaning after he left. This is where I work.

He even got the privilage to visit our SEM lab. Very few people get to visit here. I don't work on that particular SEM, but I have been by it several times.
