just connected by new (to me) laptop with it's slow modem i'm reminded of
how slow some sites are for many and thinking about a little redesign of my
own site to make it load a bit quicker...)
text is a bit big and 'in yer face' for my liking- the screen looks a bit
cluttered at the moment. whatever you do tho DON'T put a front 'click to
enter' page on whatever you do- if i were a casual browser I'd get bored and
go off to look at the cramphorns site or something instead...

ties in with the corporate branding bit again (yuck yuck!)
