            thought that would be the case.

            ditto. i am going to 'disengage' the logo and the buttons -- so
they are more distinct

            some exploration is good. but more content is need, for sure

            i slowed the menu rate....and i think a reorientation/resize of
the nav may help the 'L Effect'

            point taken, forest for the trees and all

            'cause i'm not ballsy enough to just say 'I'

            there aren't even case studies yet. but they will

            seems to be the speed difference between hidden:visible divs and
js rollovers (even with a preloader)
