    I find the navigation very confusing, and all the popups are very annoying. You would make a better impression on customers if you get a real server.

    The font has all O's filled. Maybe that is intended but I did not like it.

    the O's are not embeded yet so thats why they are filled.

    any suggestions on how to make the navigation less confussing?

    thanks

    Have the section names as buttons, instead of having to roll over symbols ( with unclear identity ) to see the section name in another place..

    Well done

    Dear flashX,

    I like the overall feel of your portfolio site, it's smart in an understated way and I like the fluidity of the movements i.e. between image changes, and also within the decoration. I felt encouraged to continue looking around, and I like that the explanation of your work is so clear and straightforward. The navigation I feel is not overly confusing, I quite like it.

    I just have one reservation, which is purely personal...it's just that black as a background colour can be quite oppressive. I understand that black perhaps reflects the 'horror' genre of your games. But my suggestion, if not to change the colour, would be to lift the writing off the page a little more, and add a little variety, so that not all the words were grey/white. For example, you could use more of that light (almost flourescent) green that is found in the plant on the home page. Either your name, or the word 'portfolio' need to stand out more and I feel this would give more impact on the first viewing.

    I hope that you find my comments useful. I really do admire the site overall.
    Best Wishes.

    Hey, does anyone know of some good cheap Australian web hosting so I don't have to have adds?

    Thanks.

    aiden-

    I liked it- you show good range in the art and the wireframe octagons give you computer credibility somehow as well. Good job, er um, mate. (that's right isn't it? ) I too would have preferred that the navigation be more straight forward. As for the $ for a host- spend what it takes you'll be glad.

    later

    Hi again,

    This is the first website I have ever put up so im not sure what hosts to go with. Are there any I should steer clear of?

    Thanks.

    Yes, any free ones. They have annoying banner ads that ruin your website.

    I use iPowerWeb, and have put a few clients on to them as well. So far so good. They are reasonably priced (about $95/year including the domain registration), have good customer service/tech support, and so far I have never seen my site or any of my clients' sites go down.

    Great improvements!

    Dear Aiden,
    I came back out of curiousity.
    I hope you don't mind if I say another thing... your name is repeated twice, but in different fonts that battle with each other, and one is justified left, and the other justified right. Do you need both? The font you've used in the middle is much stronger...
    Sorry if I am interfering, ignore me at will
    Good luck, I hope it generates you lots of work.
    Amal
