cool... fans always give good perspective...

yeah, that's how we wanted to do it (and do for the two missing 
main nav items), but the others were still in development and 
awaiting content when the client basically said, "launch!"

i agree, but our plan is to have those links start to go somewhere 
starting monday... hopefully...

yeah, that mouseover is the bomb... i thought it was cool when i 
saw it, and strangely clear...

ultimately, a lot of that info will appear at the RBR site, but at the 
same time, we don't want to redo everything they are doing... their 
fans go to their sites... RBR is going to be a generic parent site in 
case DnT wants more features and the like, but we don't want to 
compete with their site... hopefully that makes some sense...

you're the second to say that, and i like the idea... i plan to pitch 
it... as rollovers, i think, would be one way to do it... otherwise 
straight hyperlinks...

heh... well, timing will be revisited... but feedback helps on that...

cool, glad to hear it... we have other stuff i know you've heard of, 
but it isn't nearly so fun to do...

well, i *do* have a day job... i think...
