Well that's a big bummer. I bet there's other problems too, since I use negative margins quite a bit.

Hey Juggledad, can you tell me if it looks better now on your browser? I removed the negative margins and instead used "position: relative;" and "left:-158px;"

Thanks!

I am using Firefox. I really like the look of the gallery, but it is very slow to load for me. So I tried it in IE. Same thing. And it moves to the top of the page every time. Is this just a problem on my computer, or do you experience the same thing?

Tad:

Well first off...it is summer time...

Second off, it is the weekend....

And more importantly, on Firefox, it shows a completely blank page
...and in IE I get this:

The website cannot display the page

HTTP 500


Most likely causes:
•The website is under maintenance.
•The website has a programming error.


What you can try:

Refresh the page.
Go back to the previous page.
More information

I am hosting it myself and I have been getting those errors also when working on it and navigating through admin area I think is has something to do with apache2. I guess I need to examine my logs to find out what is going on.

Here's a site in development: http://wholehearted.heinrich.id.au/

There's more work to come before migrating it to its final home but all the mechanics are now in place. Many thanks to all who gave me clues and made suggestions.

I've never given much credence to Site Advisor. Bytesforall.com shows fine but forum.bytesforall.com doesn't. Perhaps there are some straggler spam messages with links to questionable sites. We take out and block all we see but probably miss some.

Thanks, Larry. I was not worried, but it has always been green before.

I looked at a few sliders and bonded with this one.

Well, the crisp white and the bright red with the black lettering look very sharp together and the slider movement animates the page very nicely. As I said, well done!

Here is one of my latest. Not my usual style at all but it was a lot of fun figuring it out. The fonts are uploaded using Font Squirrel and are Coolvetica for the text and Biko for the headings. It loads a little slowly because of that, but the customer wanted those fonts specifically

My only comment would be about the huge white space in the centre and the very long right sidebar on the main pages. I would be tempted to make the number showing in your archives from ten to five perhaps and the number of tweets showing three with the slider bar giving people options to see more.

I would make your style sheet and javascript external to cut down on the amount of coding before your content (ATO/ Configure CSS and JS at the bottom)

I also think the 3d tag cloud is fun.

I don't know about the white space, I using Linux's chromium browser which is basically google chrome and my browser window is 1240x900. When I maximize my browser, the logo gets centered and my header image doesn't fill the entire width but that is because of the image. Here is how I see it at 1240x900

1240x900

and here it is at full screen.
Full Screen
I fixed that problem.

Hi Keith. This looks great. I have a couple of suggestions around content, which you can toss if you want. I am not immediately clear what you can do for me when I go to your page. Perhaps I have done a search for corporate retreats and found your page...what will make me stay beyond the nice design?

You have about 5 seconds to let people know they have come to the right place. So I am suggesting something like this close to the top:

Are you a company that:
* needs a place for executives to retreat to develop a strategic plan
* wants the time to plan for a cultural change
* desires to work out a way to develop authentic leadership

Are you an individual that
* something something
* something something
* something something

So now, I see examples right on the front page of the work you do.

Also, there is no "call to action." i.e. "If you are ready to talk, we are ready to listen! Why not call us today?" (with a link to the contact page.
