It looks like they made this in 1993 and have never updated it since!

Nope. They just have a conservative taste regarding webdesign. Last update is from 01/2002. http://www.msbde.state.ms.us/newinfo.htm

Proving that I have no taste and am easily amused,
I actually liked Randall's site, primarily for hearing the animal noises..

Randall sorry, the dental board site still beats yours out for sheer number of typical web design mistakes. But not to fear, your site looks a lot like my first (1995) site!
The only mistake that the dental board site didn't make was to have the "audio wlecome" automatically play upon load. I wonder how they missed that one?
Sad to say, there are a lot of sites out there just like that one. And I know at least two top-notch designers who can't find a job. Sheesh!

well for one thing, you dont have to even know what html is to make a site anymore. now they have these turnkey e-commerce deals too. my plan, as far as getting clients is concerned, is to convince them they can have a "professional" looking site at a reasonable price. this is my newest site. it is quite basic and simple but i like the look of it. i kind of exagerated about knowing how to make an e-commerce site, but i have done it all except for actual funds exchange so im sure i could figure it out for the right price

suggestions for improving the text content would be appreciated.

Randall, I think your (animal sounds) site is cool... It's, you know, functional?
You should be coding kids interactive learning material & stuff!
PS: I'm serious
