Well, hey Jason, I'm afraid I have to echo the other poster.  The pop-up
is very annoying.  Not sure at all why it is there, it leaves a
dull-grey window behind with nothing on it except "this site is
optimized for 4.0+ browsers - to re-launch site click here. (for msie
browsers)"  The pop-up doesn't even show everything, I can see the top
of some text, but I can't resize it to see what else is there.  and I'm
talking IE5.5 and NN4.7 (win98) and a 15" monitor.  (It totally breaks
in NN3)

Also, grammar.  It took me too long reading this sentence, (basho
bridges leading edge scandinavian innovation with leading edge silicon
valley business practices) to figure out what you were saying.  I
thought you were talking about bridges, and the graphics would support
that.  It may look cool to not have any capitalization but it doesn't
lead to clarity.  To begin with, you don't even know it is a

Also, having the menu "over-rid" the graphics is neat, but I didn't even
"see" "Services" "Context" and "Company" as links, and didn't discover
their "linkness" until Miraz mentioned it.  I think some of the reason,
is "no-underline" obviously, but also because I use the status bar to
surf by - to see were I am going and with the status bar disabled
couldn't use that.  

I'm putting a screen shot up done in IE5.5.

NN4.7 and I'm afraid it would be unreadable on a MacOS.

Good luck,
