hey guys, kind off topic, but I just built a website for my bike club and I'd like you to ctitique/suggest/find dead links or any comment on anything that strikes (or doesn't strike) you about it. BTW, this is my first time ever dealing with computer language.

http://www.midweekclub.ca

PS. Im not fishing for compliments, but rather ways to improve it.

only the 2006 photo links work. 2002 - 2005 links take you to a list of 2007 events.

Using Firefox and IE:

images are stretched horizontally a bit. make sure they stay in the right proportions.

The images are also not sitting in their tables properly

Your header repeats at higher resolutions

Your font is a little questionable.

I think you should switch the latest news and 2007 activities columns with each other.

The Latest News column continues off the page.

That Google Calendar looks craptastic in firefox, but nice in IE

Maybe put a small nav bar at the bottom of the page, and copyright information.


These are all just tiny little details that I mention only because you asked. Otherwise it looks and navigates great! Nice work!

For someone's first time dealing with "computer language", your markup and CSS skills are amazingly excellent.

HA j/k, it's obviously a pre-made CMS (content management system). You get zero points.

On the constructive side.
I'd say you need to clean up the header, by uploading a higher res. image.
Also the italic titles don't do it for me.

I might be able to bail on class that day. You all are going on the Saturday correct? If so I might be able to go, rent a car and visit my sis and brother in law the same weekend.

I'll be doing a wheel building clinic at Bike Chain next thursday if anyone is interested. I've built them before, but I've never told people how to do it, so we'll see how that goes.

Fixed gear content: I'll probably be building a Miche Track hub to an Open pro with DT spokes.

thanks for the comments, Shiznaz and lymbzero. I'll try to incorporate those suggestions.
Shiz: got a better font suggestion? The one I have now is quite plain.

I hope so, I don't want to fire off a 3rd email to this guy changing the registration from me. Would make me look like this guy.

ipod users help me. I found a 30G ipod on the road last week and no one has claimed it. So questions abound.
I need to get a charger for it, one I can plug into my computer. Would future shop be a good place to look, or go to the apple store nearest me?

Next, once I get it plugged into my machine, to load music on it do I need to use itunes, or can I copy files from my machine straight to it? The settings on the machine are for windows, I checked before the battery died.

When it comes to apple products and ipods I am out of the loop so to speak.

more like pate/fois gras 101. i have since developed a mild dislike for terrines; something about cold mushrooms, cream and aspic just don't do it for me.
