What a nice Site. How long did it take you to do it, including planning,
writing the text, working out the navigation, scanning all those graphics and setting up
the shopping cart and database. Bet a pro wouldn't do it for less than
$10,000, maybe far more. What about search engine optimization, and
tweaking everything after the launch...time, time, time.

Only problem is that the pages seem a little off balance, with the
sign-up form often being the only thing in the left-most column. Logo
is also too far to the left...the artistic balance isn't correct at
least on my Windows machine.

BTW,I'm just an amateur who does his own sites.
