Nice job on the website.

Thanks. I'm beta testing Microsoft Office Live and for a "Limmited Time" you get free hosting, 5 free e-mails, a bunch of site tracking tools and a web based site designer...all for free. But the tools are extremely limited so I had to make the most of what was available. I plan on having a fully flash integrated website eventually.

When you post the voting tomorrow, can you make sure that you say something about not just voting for or against your favorite or hated player, but based on the looks of the sig instead? I think many people would appreciate that.

Unfortunately though... the subject of any design does enter into the overall appeal. No amount of disclaimers and such can ever change that.

While I was working on this project this morning Photoshop melted down on me big time. I could'nt save anything, got a ton of error messages and had to close it...

NOW it won't start...I have NOTHING!

I'm gonna have to reinstall Photoshop but, my disc is at a friends house ( I let him install my copy on his machine but forgot the disc at his place.) I won't have the disc in my hands for a few hours so there is no way inhell I'm gonna be able to get my project done by the deadline. Hell, I dunno if I'll even have the disc today.:tantrum::fire::evil:

I'm SO SORRY. I know what a pain in the *** it is to have someone not turn there project in but there is not a darn thing I can do about it right now...:boohoo:
