You get bonus fronats for designing the site around the content and not the ads, which are so discrete.

Do you mean you appreciate the ads being minimal? if so, thanks. They are kind of a necessary evil. Dave

Most tutorial sites are built around the ads. Making them annoying to visit and horrilbe to look at.

Spend those fronats wisely.

i guess my confusion with the post was i don't know what "fronats" are.

Thanks for the compliments, Dave

Thanks for the feed back. Anything in particular? I'm making a new skin and any particular feed back would be greatly appreciated.

Changed the categories around and added preview images to most of the post. Think it helped? Dave

In your profile, you'll need to add the "http://" otherwise it attempts to link from ... ie, which as you can imagine... doesn't work.

As for the site itself, I'm having problems with the flash videos, In Opera, even when loaded to 100% they playback something weird. The timing is all off, it'll pause and skip like the frame rates are conked. I switched over to IE to see if it was any different... and it was, it played back perfectly... only I can't seem to full screen the clips in IE, the button is completely unresponsive. So i'm left with 2 choices... either watch the teeny versions that playback perfectly (but make it hard to see what's what), or watch the full screen versions which skip and jump like a balerina.

Unfortunately it works best with firefox. I'm looking into a new flash player that work better with other with more internet browsers.

Very impressive ! Nice work on the site and content.

EDIT: Looking forward on completion of your modifier explanation list. Will come in handy - when trying to explain a specific process for someone.
