Looks good, Sean,

One thing, some of the text fonts that you've used show up distorted (pixelated) on my browser (MS IE). You might want to test that.

Looks good Sean -- Nice and easy to find options and I like the blueprint background idea.

The local weather insert looks as though it could use some work though:

 Quote:

Today: Hi 68, Lo -2
Tomorrow: Hi 72, Lo 55
Next day: Hi 9999, Lo -9999

Looks good. You should add the link to your profile here.

I agree with Ed about some of the text being distorted. I'm also using IE.
When opening up your "email us" link a security warning pops that Comet Cursor would like to be installed. While there is some controversy as to whether Comet Cursor is spyware or not I'm not in favor of web sites trying to convince me to install software on my system.

I'm not being critical of you, just providing some feedback. I thing you did an excellent job!

Curt

Yup, other that some fuzzy font, it looks great! (Is it a true-type font?)

Didja put the local temps/weather on there to make us jealous?!?

32ºF and freezing rain here...

Sean,
The text font that you have used is called "Haettenschweiler" and it looks real bad on IE.

Two recommended fonts for websites are Verdana or Arial.
