Hi John,

I am going to forward this to my client.
The only irritating part is the thought of having to do work over again that
I thought was finished, but this happens all the time of course. But my
client is going to hire me to continue to be her tech guru/ web programmer,
so all changes will be on her dime, not in my quote for doing this website.

Thanks for the input.

Hi Nan

I'm more of an Internet marketeer (stop hissing at the back) and usability
kinda guy nowadays and for me, it looks great but:

1) there's too much header. It seems to take up too much of the page for no
real (functional) reason
2) I get a vague idea of what you're doing, but it's a walking in treacle
thing. You're trying to get me to understand what you're doing all at once.
Better to sign me up with "Are you a company? Find professionals who will
answer your questions for free and work by the hour" and "Are you a
specialist? Find work here", or similar and then create a program of
gradual, easy, hints and tips type stuff, or a few pages of signup that
gradually make the point. Think of the signup to Facebook or similar.

I don't know if that's all within your remit, but thought I'd contribute
that. Irritating at this stage, I'm sure :-)
