Hey MadMan2k, I just finished editing my site a little, check it out if you want and tell me what you think now. Just use the same link that I posted earlier or if you want just type this in the address bar: www.geocities.com/flyboyf3 . Thanks for the suggestions, I think after I edited the font and background colors that it's easier to read (and more comfortable on the eyes!) . I also started a Table of Contents type of thing above the maintenance area so it's easier to find a topic you want.

The site is a bit easier to read now, good job there.
One thing I noticed, the background image is pretty large, and it takes a while to load it. Using the GIF format instead of BMP, it's under 2 kilobytes, which makes it much faster to load your page on a slow connection.

I attached a GIF version, maybe you can use that (it's the same image, but its much smaller).

I noticed that when I finished the post, but I thought I'd just leave it that way so it was easier for him and anyone else who wanted to check it out.

Thanks, I thought it made it easier to read because green is a soothing color to the eyes, and it stands out on the black background better than any other color so it's even easier. And did you notice I edited the Dan's Comp. images? And I also noticed that it took a little while to load, and I have road runner. I might change the format or make them smaller, I'm not sure though. But anyway, thanks for all the complements and suggestions, they were really helpful!

White stands out best on a black background, not green...

Well I guess that would work also, but I think I'll stick with the color scheme I have now, but thanks for the suggestion, or comment, or whatever you want to call it.

So does the homeless situation and the rising drug problem in the East Bay, but, hey, I'm not complaining.
