    I like your site quite alot but there is a large amount of flash used and on a dial-up would take along time to load. But the flash is good.

    your flash text is too small and i cant resize it

    your title changing text thing is annoying

    your website navigation takes about 2000hours to appear (but disappears fast!)

    And remember: this is also what search engines see, meaning you'll probably never appear in the results…

    Flash was never accessible and never will be. Learn how to write valid, semantic markup and then style it as needed with CSS — that's the first and most important step.

    I guess if I could throw my 2 cents in this would be it... (not to sound to harsh really)

    Taken from someone who is not to technical, but more looking at stuff from a design perspective, I don't see anything creative there. Like, you made it look like a folder in windows which is cool, but really really really boring. It is my opinion that you should have something to say rather than just show off that you can use flash (maybe thats just cause I couldn't figure flash out myself, who knows). I guess it just is not an apealing website for me to visit.

    On the techinical side, there are quite a number of broken links or things not working which usually turns a viewer off pretty quickly.

    ps, to pyro... how much should you base a site off of that lynx thing? I mean, I'm a photographer who made a website showcasing my photos... duh, that won't work in Lynx. I see the point in at least having it have some viable info there so someone can find out more info if they want, but who really uses that anymore? Or did I already answer my question?

    A photo gallery is, by nature, not extremly accessible. However, you can still do some things to help it out. First, use meaning full markup (semantics). Next, remember to give alt descriptions to each image. Remember that even if you aren't expecting any blind users, Google is the biggest "blind" user of the internet.

    okay, I get what you mean. Therefore to use lynx as a guidline for proper marking of images and text. cool

    I liked it

    From a non-professional point of view (i.e very much a user), I thought it looked quite good and reacted quite well (although I do have a fast connection at work and might not be so happy with large download times at home).
    I'm not sure however that you meant to put in the links section:

    "The links section contains various offsite kinks"

    Then again, maybe you did??
