the trailboss abuses his CodeRanch power for his other stuff (power corrupts. absolute power corrupts absolutely is kinda neat!)

The background on your enter page (thumbs down). Reminds me of a tv with poor reception. The menu area on your main page is way too busy. If you organize that a little better it will really improve the overall look. The little pop ups on the menu links only partially show if you are near the edge of the page.

Thanks Paul. I am very thankful to you. You are very much right in saying about that TV reception. I'll certainly look into your suggestions. Please do send me your precious comments.
Thanks a lot.

do you really need the first(enter here) page? if not, dump it. if you do need it, change the background. the lines dont look good.
the main page looks good in a technical sense, but not in an artistic sense. perhaps its just me though. it reminds me of yahoo. you might want to have less on the main page and put what you remove on a different page(s) accessible by link(s) on main page. it just seems too busy for my taste. that includes the menu like paul said. i would try to have less of everything, including links, on the main page.
overall you did pretty good though
it probly is just me. i guess lots of people like having so much different stuff in one place.

Thanks Randall. I believe what you have said make a lot of sense. I have removed a lot of content from the main page. Actually. It was almost triple there. I'll keep in mind your suggestions. I am certainly going to do two things:
1. Change the menu
2. Change the open page background.
Thanks alot. Please do share your more views.
