my dad told me when I turned 15 that he "now knows why hurricanes were named after girls".  (he never had a son, if he did he would know why they alternate names, boys can be just a/more messy)  tongueout

Just added a guest book to the site. It will allow you to add comments etc. I've been working on it for a bit yesterday, but it's very hard to edit because it's ALL PHP scripting - no HTML, and PHP is something a little new to me. I would like to get our banner and the menu above it but I can't figure it out. :( It'll look nice eventually.

Also added rounded corners for the boxes on the site! Please note that at the moment, many features on the site are NOT supported in earlier versions of Internet Explorer, and even Internet Explorer 8 will not show the rounded corners. If you're using IE, you won't see it, and I'd strongly recommend downloading Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or Apple Safari, which are all free.

I will eventually find a script to put a small warning banner at the top if you're using IE, that recommends you to download one of those browsers.

I have decided that I don't like the colors for the site... so I changed them to a more professional set that goes well with the rounded text boxes, however I'm not sure if they're appropriate for the content of the site. The background is white and the items within are blue. I'm not really sure what I should do with it, I'll be working on matching the dropdown menu with it as well for now, but I would like some input as to what colors I should use.

the "kahki" background this site has is easier on the eyes (for eyestrain). maybe a really light grey for the same effect (but that will go better with the white/blue theme?)

Alright... I darkened all of the blues on the site. Hopefully it's not too much, and I think it looks a little better.

Sorry, tan doesn't look good on a website like that. I think the darker blue looks good. Red would be too bright, green doesn't really go with anything else on the site, blue's the best option. I like it.

I finished the support page. Dad, check your email (the new one. I sent you all the login info. to you via PM) to make sure it's working.
