Looks simple and nice.

nice, but you might want to sort out some errors:

some of the links don't work e.g: the forum link is linking to http://techknows.exsoftgames.com/forums\index.php rather than http://techknows.exsoftgames.com/forums/index.php
but that is just one

also the picture at the top doesn't work

and you might want to change the font colour of the link in the online games bit


but i like the effect in the background of the contact page

p.s, i am useing firefox

firefox>IE in general. and just because its in beta doesnt mean it shouldnt be compared to a final porduct. I mean, don't you think the beta of IE 7 should be just as good as the final f IE 6....

but, this is a noob's perspective

i hate that when u hav an os like windows, you have to "hack" it, (sorry peple that sya hacking is creative coding, but i cant think of a better word). I mean honestly, if you spend $300 on xp pro, you should at least be able to modify it to your liking w/o huge issues.

i dont have linux...unfortunately. Ive wanted to get it for a long time, but i wasnt sure of the best way to do so. When i do get it i will get yellow dog or slackware.

im not sure if this is true, but i heard red hat is a very common one, but for the more "intense linux user".
I just want to dabble my feet in the linux waters. i have been thinking about dual-bootin linux and win xp. this is possible....right?

Redhat is a good one I think and a common one but I don't think its for the more intense linux user... Redhat is nice and easy to set up. I have just about dual booted Redhat with just about all the windows except for xp but I have read about people dual booting xp and linux with no problem.

God bless you.

Looks nice so far. A little bit of testing in Firefox wouldn't hurt.

Part of the image location for the logo that doesn't work is "Media%5Clogo.PNG" - The %5c, I think, was a backslash \ . If so, take it out of the HTML and put a forward slash / in its place, or if the website doesn't have a Media folder, take the "Media%5C" out completely.

I also noticed:
meta name=Generator content="Microsoft Word 9"

Although Microsoft Word can export to HTML, I do not recommend it for designing websites with. It is first and foremeost a word processor for dealing with printed media, and poorly suited for web pages.

I highly recommend http://www.w3schools.com/ for learning HTML and CSS with . Learning the language is IMHO the best way to learn how to create webpages.

what has happened since I established my ancient people,
and what is yet to comeó
yes, let him foretell what will come.

It means you have to split your harddrive up. Linux distros normally come with tools that will allow you to do this when you get ready to install linux. When I first started playing with linux I went out and got a book called Redhat Bible..... They have diffrent linux bible books but they normally come with a disk and the disk will have linux on it. Also these bible type of book have a ton of information in them. I recommend getting one of these books if you can.

Yes, notepad (or a non-WYSIWYG HTML editor) is good for creating webpages with. From what I can see, it can be easily replicated with some tables and CSS.
