Check out my new mac site. I think it is quite visually appealing :)... View it at http://www.bytewaretech.net/Apple/, and yes, it is case-sensitive.

Please, don't complain that the links don't work yet...its 1.30 am here, and I am working on the pages as fast as I can.

Do you think I should round out the "buttons"? That is, make the red/yellow/green buttons round, and the gray button that oval-shaped rectangular-circle thingy? (I don't know what its called or what it does, but I know its there in Finder windows....)

Yeah you could round out the buttons http://www.musictracker.firestormcreation.com has the finder buttons if your looking for them, the long button is just like a half collapse button.. hard to explain what it does ;)
i was thinkin you were going to put the finder lines at the very top of the menu white bar.. but either way u like it works.

Thanks for the logo source =)

Sorry for asking, but WTH are finder lines? :)

Thanks!

I plan on adding some more eye candy to it, but I'm gonna have to wait until Tuesday (when my iBook should arrive) so I can do some screenshots of certain things (I'll give you a sneak peek of one: optional 'scrollbars', using images -- perhaps even real scroll bars -- down the side of certain 'windows'.) I am also going to convert my hard-coded stuff to using MySQL, so the site may look strange for a while tonight -- perhaps I'll do it tonight, perhaps tomorrow or next week, dunno. Prolly focus on content atm, i.e. "how to switch" etc...

yes, I use a special spam mail address... designated for spam... though it seems the other addresses get more spam, seeing how they are all over the web and my software, music, fun, school websites. ;)

recently i hvnt been getting much, though i still get it once and a while. I figure, i get spam, i might as well get paid to read it.

OMG! 2c per read?????? It's gonna take me a year to get $25! hehe
Though, with the $10 bonus, maybe not =)
And, how do they verify that you are reading them?
