    Before I was using some of Root's templates but I decided to make my own, more customized look. I took a look at some different sites to see what I liked and popped open trusty Firefox's EditCSS. It took awhile to get all the kinks worked out but I think it is solid now.

    There is a bug in Firefox that causes it to render the sides of the page incorrectly. This bug will be fixed by Firefox 1.0. It is no fault of mine and renders correctly on every other browser.

    Once again, I've found a great web log with intriguing content and a clean design. Just by visiting the WordPress SYS forum!
    Great site! And it looks fine in IE6 as far as I can tell (at a screen res. of 1024...)

    Food for thought:
    # TOTAL_OBJECTS - Warning! The total number of objects on this page is 18 - consider reducing this to a more reasonable number. Combine, refine, and optimize your external objects. Replace graphic rollovers with CSS rollovers to speed display and minimize HTTP requests.
    # TOTAL_IMAGES - Warning! The total number of images on this page is 16 , consider reducing this to a more reasonable number. Combine, refine, and optimize your graphics. Replace graphic rollovers with CSS rollovers to speed display and minimize HTTP requests.
    # TOTAL_SIZE - Warning! The total size of this page is 319685 bytes, which will load in 63.91 seconds on a 56Kbps modem. Consider reducing total page size to less than 30K to achieve sub eight second response times on 56K connections. Pages over 100K exceed most attention thresholds at 56Kbps, even with feedback. Consider contacting us about our optimization services.
    # IMAGES_SIZE - Warning! The total size of your images is 295358 bytes, which is over 30K. Consider optimizing your images for size, combining them, and replacing graphic rollovers with CSS.

    Yeah, after I move some of the images into my gallery and make them into thumbnails it will get a bit smaller..but considering its got images its a bit difficult to keep the size way down.

    I dropped the total size down a few hundred k, so that should help a bit.

    I know exactly what you mean-- have the same problem myself.

    It seems as though your link is broken, and after a little browsing of the parent domain /weblog/ is broken too. Might want to fix that =P
