I just finished putting together a new webpage that includes updated versions of a few of my games, some other stuff, and even a new game, but it's not very far into developement yet, so don't expect much from it.

the url is kurtp2003.googlepages.com

The minimlistic look to the site (along with the colour scheme) is appealing. I would add small 'widescreen'(32x128) thumbnails of your programs however to break up the text and attrach the users towards downloading them.

That's not a bad idea. I'll get on it right away.

When you create an image, make sure it has a small, thin border around it (like my profile picture to the left) to divide it up a bit more as well.

The thumbnails should be used on the right hand side menu right above the zip file to download it. When clicking on the picture it should expand to a larger one. Having your 'Top 3' programs you want the most attention to in the main center of the page is good. I would bold and enlargen the titles of the programs a bit more however, let them stick out a bit. This way people see "Ping!" and the picture of Ping and then the information about Ping.

I wouldn't use *.bmp file format for the pictures (takes forever to load), try and use a different image format (like *.jpg or *.png) which retains image quality but alot smaller (making it faster to download and few).

Anyway, how does it look?
