Amusing people is very profitable to many people, if not mroe than on a personal level...and that's all good n fine...however....that's not me. I don't pay anything for my site to be hosted, and I paid only $8.95 for a year for the domain name (and that was about a yr and a half ago...so I bought it for another year..what's 18 dollars for two years of amusment?). You can't be that....my friends own a web design company, and give me webspace for free...this first website was to practice html and css....and to work with the programs my friends use.....so, if I was having to pay more money, or a monthly bill to host the plastersquirrel site, I wouldn't do it....but I don't...so I do....it was originally more for my friends and I, but the whole world should know about it.

and of course I love the squirrel..it's a vital part of my life....it's also the first website I ever did...and it was all code...no perdy dreamweaver or photoshop...I knew nothing of dreamweaver at the time (could have done photoshop)....I also knew next to nothing about html or anything to do with building a website straight from code. So, there isnt' really much I could do with design at the time....and there isn't really a whole lot to say about the squirrel, other than what you can see for yourself, and the story...which I must admit is a bit hard to read....I'll try and work on the format sometime, so it's easier on the eyes...

besides...I'll have a "worthwhile," and better designed site, up and running in about a month...I'm working on it right now....and this time I'm using things, I as a graphic design student, find an easier time working with....hope this explains more of my reasoning, and will let you enjoy the squirrel more now.

and just to milk it...: www.plastersquirrel.com

Yeah. I see. The squirrel thing. I met one in Jacksonville, the South side, near the Avenues Mall - that Mall had an arcade called the Dream Machine

design2, use iServe for domains, they've got excellent support and a great interface. (www.iserve.co.nz)

I'm in your forums, writing sentences in a grammatically acceptable manner.

Sorry it's a bit far-on, but this site doesn't render properly in smaller browser windows!

I realise that you recommend a resolution of 1280 x 854, I'm advised to turn mine down (quoted as 1280 x 960) - that's with two monster 19" (CRT) monitors side-by side at work. But sites really should be designed for smaller resolutions than that. The majority of people struggle to get 1024x768, and of those, not all of them will use all of it. Personally, I rarely have my browser windows at full-screen...

It's not good that your title bar gets hidden by the nav-bar on the RHS...

Anyway, just thought I'd let you know! ^_^
