    to quote Homer Simpson: "Now your freak flags flyin, let the freak out begin!"

    I'm open to any and all suggestions as to where we go from here. What would you like to see in the full version of our site?

    I showed it to a friend of mine, and his only comment was this: "nice... basic. three colors. has three links. Could it be enlargened? I'm squinting just a tad..."

    what screen resolution is he working with? I'm working on a 1400x1050 and can see it just fine...is it really too small?

    Wow...1400x1050 ehh?

    All I've got here at work and home is 800x600...and I'd wager that's what he's got...

    800x600 -wow the site must look huge. considering the width of the site is 400. I'm working on the meta tags now, so that people will be able to find us in a search engine. I'm also going to check with Matt Busch to see if he could post a small banner link to our site. If you don't know who Matt is check out [link=http://www.mattbusch.com]mattbusch.com[/link], he's amazing and he does alot of work for Lucas...not to mention he's a detroiter also.

    I tend to keep my resolution at 1024x768 here at work. The image is only a tad small. It gets bigger at 800x600, so unless I'm missing something I am not sure that is his problem.

    Nice, btw. Say, what is that little hidden link at the bottom right supposed to do?

    Ahh...the little "hidden link" opens the mail composer to send F&B an e-mail. :)

    I hadn't noticed that...I was too excited by just looking at it. :)

    It looks great! I loved that you used Idgie's intro.

    If it helps, the letters are a little hard to read in some places because of the gray letters on the blue/gray background and the letters in the intro text are a bit fuzzy (compare to the text in the lower left box)... If the text could be sharpened up a bit, that might solve the 'squinting' problem.

    I'm using 800 by 600 and the overall image size is fine.

    That said, Congats on your new site! Looks great. ;)

    Hey Bro,
    Site looks nice...

    BTW, I am Fear and Bullets RL brother.
    I tried to open the site on the macs at school and they cant read the browser...maybe that is something to look into. I love the colors from a design stand point but you have to decrease the resoulion so you don't need a magnifying glass to view it...(eventhough the size works for me). Take Care.

    Looks good!

    One note, since it's already been mentioned, however. I'm at 1280x1024 and I notice that the italics are a little hard to read. Somehow they seem smaller than the regular font. But I'm at a really high resolution and I'm willing to squint a little. :)

    Nice job!

    :D Love it! Obviously it could use some more content and what not, but it's an awesome start.
