    looks pretty tight Tyler. I'd ease up on the center justifying. Also it's proven the the human eye/brain has issues following long horizontal lines of text (ie. Newspaper print is broke into easy to scan columns). I generally set my sites in a centered table set to 80% page width (then mix the justification within that centered table)... that way it still scales and has *white space* on each side of the window (though I didn't in the site I'm hacking for my band http://www.hartsafire.com/wake )

    Also, skin the forum is the site colors (like I did for www.thelowend.net ).
     
  4. I really haven't done anything with the forums, been busy w/ finals. I'll end up skinning it as I need to. Also, that's an interesting way to do sales on the low end...who's idea was that?

    mine, Brian is a friend and was in need of some site stuff (old free host and pages disapeared :eek: ). I needed to get him up quick and make it so he could take over with little training... and be able to add all sold stuff to a gallery without much fuss.

    I racked my brain for a week and pondered a custom backend (actually I spend too much time pondering back ends :smug: )... when the idea of a forum hit me. When he sells something, he just "moves" the thread and retitles it. It also gave him the ability to have a little BBS of his own.
     
  6. Hrm, not a bad idea! Good thinkin.

  9. I've had it since 6th grade and it's just kind of stuck. Actually, it somewhat died out and people call me T-Hole, but I thought it would be funny to bring it back and use it since we all had weird nick names (cept bernie because we couldn't think of a good one).

    The site is plain, but functional (which is much better than beautiful and useless). The songs are pretty rough, but funny.

    I've also begun the TB takeover of your forum. Who's with me?

    Your tongue kind of scares me T-Hole.

    I bet you're popular with the ladies, though.
     
  15. You guys are crazy :p

    The "songs" on there are totally on-the-spot made up ones of just of me and my guitarist at 2am-3:30am on a Sunday morning.
