HELLO PEOPLE! (Updated 9/7/04)

First of all I like thank you for your comments!

Here is the final cut.................

THE SITE

You probably do not understand anything what it says. It is in Finnish. You can also comment on the design and the usability.

Thank you!

Tursas

Hi Tursas,
IE6 seems to be getting the hover wrong.
If you move your mouse over the top right box the background seems to do strange things.

Hope that helps

BTW the top right button should not have any effects because it the home button and this is the home page.

allright then... Wink
i just looked at the page with netscape 6, and the active links dont stay active.
And what i dont like is that the page doesn't fit on the monitor with a 1024x768 res.
I would consider to resize it so that there is no scrollbar.
greets,
ben

Hi,

There's a bad contrast on :hover for color/background-color
Can't read properly.

Hi Tursas,
Yes that's fixed the above rollover problem.
The rollover images seem to take a long time to load, Have you looked into different ways to do them?
You could do most of it without images.

hey works fine in opera 7.50, firefox and ie6

the only qualms i would have are that it takes a long time to load on 56k you could fix this by using smaller images for the link effects.

also the colors make the text hard to read, the second link down looks good but the rest need to either have darker backgrounds or darker text

That takes waaay too long to load on 56k.

(All hail the Mozzy webdev toolbar!)

Connection Rate Download Time
14.4K 220.75 seconds
28.8K 110.48 seconds
33.6K 94.72 seconds
56K 56.91 seconds
ISDN 128K 17.57 seconds
T1 1.44Mbps 1.71 seconds

TOTAL_SIZE - Warning! The total size of this page is 284565 bytes, which will load in 56.91 seconds on a 56Kbps modem. Consider reducing total page size to less than 30K to achieve sub eight second response times on 56K connections. Pages over 100K exceed most attention thresholds at 56Kbps, even with feedback.

IMAGES_SIZE - Warning! The total size of your images is 280618 bytes, which is over 30K. Consider optimizing your images for size, combining them, and replacing graphic rollovers with CSS.

There is a way to replace most of that rollovers with css, but it would take a whole lot of code.

The main thing I would have done is to design for 800 screen res and have the page fit within the viewport without having to scroll; as it is in 1024 it just runs of the the screen by an annoying fraction making me scroll just to pick up the footer!
The background pic is a bit naughty at 85kb that's way too big, slows down loading on a 56k dial up; I would have thought that it should be a jpg rather than a gif for that type of image it would compress then without too much adverse effect on quality.
Otherwise looks good.

Thats better, a fair bit faster, I read it as 36.4kb and no visible loss in quality!
