    It's not possible to evaluate a site this way Sentral.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Hmmm....I'll put the site on a free host. Then it can be tested.

    It's nothing fancy, because I like my web pages simple, without a whole bunch of animation. But I'm able to do animation.

    No. I meant it's not possible to evaluate a website if I'm not involved in it. For me your website is worth nothing... but then and again so is amazon's. If however I had an interest in it, I could possibly put some value on my interest.

    However, I can probably tell you that for an Adobe Flash website, it's very weak using very little of the technology and consequently being very amateurish. Which is fine, mind you. But since you ask for a price... you know. $0

    Also the typeface and colors, on a second look seem to be a bad bet. They are hard to read. And people with poor eyes or in poor light conditions may have trouble reading it. Try doing the unexpected and swap them between the dark grey and light grey sections. For some reason, I seem to think the black will be easier to read on the dark grey section.

    $0?! I'd say at least $50. But the great thing is, when your selling a website, you can take advantage of people, and rack the price up. Another good thing is, there isn't any cost for materials, so basically your making 100% profit. $0?! Nay!

    Black looks OK, but I like the contrast! You always seem to dislike everything about my design...

    Hmm... It's the first and only thing I disliked so far. Anyways, it's your website. Do as you like. You asked for an opinion, I gave it.

    The overall look is very good and professional - congratulations on it!

    The text doesn't bother me; I actually find it quite easy to read. My main complaints are:

    1. The clicking sound. I hate it. If I wanted buttons to click on a web page, I'd do it myself.
    2. That there seems literally no need for Flash. You could achieve the same look with HTML/CSS, and then it'd be far more accessible than the way it is now.

    Just my opinion, and I do have to say the design is one of the best I've seen for a website. Good luck to it.

    I don't care how pretty a site is if I can't read it.

    I hate small, non-resizable text. At least allow the users to be able to resize your text by not using pixel measurements.

    I like the colour scheme, but the clicking sound... dude, no.
    If you still want to use Flash after the point joeprogrammer made, some nice animated menu's and whatnot would be neat.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    Sentral, you got a gmail account? If you do you can create your own webpage and upload documents easily ... http://pages.google.com I think. Unfortunately, as far as I know, you can't set a particular page as your homepage. You could create a homepage and upload HTML files or whatever to navigate throughout what you uploaded. Check the link on my sig. Googlepages.

    Also, animated menues are easy enough to do. Google for css horozontal menues and you should get something useable.

    And clicking ... bad!

    I'm just using the free host for testing, and so you guys could see it. I'm going to probably get hosting from 1&1 Hosting. Thanks, though.
