Yes this is a nice idea. It works very well
It works better in my 1280x800, rather than the 1024x768 ... (doesn't have a horizontal scrollbar in the wider one) - but it does work very well!
Perhaps the site needs a little tidying up, maybe change the background colour and/or remove the border of the big table.
any suggestions of what background color would be best? and i have 1280x1024 so i never had the problem with the horizontal scroll bar thanks for telling me about that
Ok could be this old computer of mine but I am not seeing very much here? A google search and some few but good links on the side . . . is this???? Not sure what socializing is about? The grey background is ok but I guess you could experiment with it. Backgrounds are tricky I like ones that make what is on the page stand out and not the other way around. Sorry if my feedback is not so great.
Good luck on your site ok.
