The square image behind the icon & "machine" in your logo. I would change the overlay to a different pattern or perhaps lower the opacity. Justa  thought.

Looks great. Good work.

Code: [Select]

Voicemail, pagers
These are the things that robots carry
To get they hair done
Eyes made up
Difference effects to their bodies
Sometimes, too many to even know
The life of a robot

->kool keith- im seein' robots

Great looking site.
Is that mambo your using?
Nice use of colours and icons.
The google add placement is also well done.
congrats

Nice site, well laid-out.  You've got a good amount of information there without it being too busy.  IMO, that's the biggest challenge of commercial websites like that.
If you can't design an attractive, standards-compliant website using nothing more than Notepad and a decent graphics editor, you need to rethink your approach to web design.

The header and buttons are "tightly" designed-no not the slang, the tight as in aesthetically tight... oh nevermind. It's a good thing, though, either way.
Anyways... well I dislike how mambo just lets things go on vertically without anything to make it not appear as it the gray boxes just float, but that's not your fault.
Nice site.
Have a wonderful day!

I am trying to port it to a new variable template which miight give the site a smarter look..

Somehow i never get notified when theres a reply to the thread..[even though i tick the"notify me when a rep..."

Did you check your profile settings to make sure that it is set to send you notifications? And did you check any spam folders/filters that might block the notices?
