re: gurix.com

Small text: I use a Mac, so browsers let me increase the font size. As 
my vision is going, I needed to do that on your site. But when I did, 
it looked fine and readable and not like I broke anything. So, if you 
can somehow allow for people unfortunate enough to use PCs to also 
change the font size, then maybe it will be more comfortable on the 
eyes for older folks.

I liked the colors. I liked the gray menu at the top. It looked like a 
javascript menu but behaved really cool with those wipe effects. Maybe 
put a white border on the right edge.

Usually if I want to go back to the home page I click on the logo in 
the top left. I got the little hand, so I know the logo is a link, but 
I didn't go anywhere. There is no rollover text in the status bar (I 
tend to really rely upon that even if that isn't a very common thing to 
do), so I didn't know why it didn't work. Thankfully you had the 

Not sure the horizontal image below the flash banner area for each 
top-level link is necessary. How about changing just the banner image?

It's a pretty site. You fit a lot of content in a small space. I have 
never been able to do that well.
