The program I used to make that applet called them flozoids. Everyone else in our house calls them sperm too.
What about all the other pages?

Not bad at all!

Not bad at all. I like my sites without animated graphics, unless its an intro however. Its easy to navigate, that's a plus! And the different colors per page is cool too, because it still has the checkered sideline to maintain consistency. One thing I reccommend is a font change. Try Verdana, if you can. Dreamweaver allows you to. Its the best web text in my opinion. Also, on the link to probetalk, add this line to the html:

< a href="http://www.probetalk.com" target="_new" >
(w/o spaces between the brackets.)

The target= new will open probetalk into an external window, so your page is still there! ;)

Yeah the background goes pretty well also. It's light enough to not look busy or interrupt the page. The buttons are cool too, with their roll-over and all. That's javascript, right?

Actually it's a little DHTML script I got from Dynamic Drive. It's something you can tweak too. Really cool. You can have the button, or whatever image you choose, appear from behind it's own background or use the page's background simply by removing the background=" " tag within the image tag. Go here, http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex15/index.html, and check out the Gradual Highlight Image Script I and II. If you'll cruise the site you'll find all sorts of goodies. I also have gotten some stuff from Cnet Builder's Stupid Net Tricks sections over the past couple of years.
Cheers, Barry

Almost forgot, the background is really one composite image I put together in Photoshop from another background I picked up somewhere I can't remember and a black and white version of a color photograph given to me by one of the other club members, Felipe. I just altered the opacity of the image of the cars on top of the checkerboard/gradient (or was it vice/versa?) and then for each page I alter the hue, saturation, and lightness of the color. Simple, no?

There might be more of that to come. I went to one of the other guy's house and he pulled out some other magazine with our Probes in it. Can't remember which one. I'll have to remind him of that.
I know that a few people have complemented me on the site and I thank them. Still, I have this nagging feeling that something better can be done to it.
