Hi Rob...

I personally like the look of the site, overall. Given the density of links/information you display on your index page, it's quite clean. The only obvious problem I see (and I got nailed on this too) is a lack of actual content (read=topical text) on your index page. I had the exact same thing going on, and didn't make the effort to fix it that some insisted upon because our site is more of a referral thing. However, by adding a bit of 'overview' text to my index page, I was able to create a hefty keyword density that search engines gobbled up. It's made a nice difference, and given the fact that we don't rely on search engines as much as referrals, it was really all we needed.

Others in the group can give you more detailed critiques of your code, content, etc.
