    its so cool! I know Im already over there too, but I saw this here, so Ill post here. some audio might be nice, the loading page is cool, when I say audio, I mean cartoony stretch effects for the logo.

    Specs:
    17" Flat Panel iMac -15" 1.5GHz, 80GB HDD, 128MB ATI video card, 1GB RAM- PowerBook
    I think it looks way cool.

    A couple criticisms:
    1. The blue's in the Finder logo/icon/graphic appear washed out, but that could just be me.
    2. It takes a while to load, I'm on cable at 3Mbps and it still took too long, IMO.

    Otherwise I like it, but I have a feeling anyone viewing on dialup might not.
    Looking for a PowerMac G4 for $500 or less USD.

    My comment would be that the animation is waaaaaay to big for anyone not on broadband. You either need a way to scale the size way down or an option to skip it for those with dialup.

    Oh and BTW, if you're going to take our guidelines, etc....you should probably at least give credit

    But seriously, good luck with the site, you can never have enough Mac sites!

    Its cool, but waaaaay too long of load time. Im on a T3 and it took five minutes to load up. The countdown is cool, but the numbers dont mean much because they seem to repeat themselves even though they are in bytes. Otherwise looks cool and I agree with macman in that it needs audio.

    It looks good, I'm not a huge fan of flash intros, but this one is pretty cool. If i were you though I would make the enter now or skip more prevalant. I read a stat once that said 95% of all users hit skip, so I've never entered them into my designs. You have to remember the 3 second rule. If nothing happens in that time period people will close out and you will lose visitors.

    Just my $0.02 dollars.

    ok... its a nice intro... but... it was what... 15-25 seconds? and its waaay too big... cant you compress it somehow?
    - It's like - he was got - they'd just like. It was like so hush hush. They were so... quiet about it. And then the next thing you know...

    That's fine, but you need to give credit to the site you took them from. That's not only polite, but it's also copyright law
