Default web design insight needed

I have a new design up and running, along with new content. I am hoping people can take a look and let me know if there is something that isn't working properly. here is the link:

Seen and approuved :)
maybe a few thoughts on the side
- the frame appearing around the flash can be avoided with a tiny script included on your provider
- the links text under could be more clear readable
- personally not that keen on the pop-ups foto presentations, it is not that invitive to see all photos, smaller photos on the main frame with smaller thumbs could be an alternative (see layout Bio) and protective from copiers.
- maintaining a sober handeling and colors of background is excellent done.
- the loading turning earth could be avoided a bit by building the flash up with scenes, these will load in the background while looking around and avoids the loading time.

An example of a rather heavy flash (700Mgb) I made in 2 months, built with scenes you will find on my provider here(sorry, in Dutch), you will not see that flash-frame thanks to a small script, a pleasant feature you can see by changing the size of your browser, it will fit on any size of browser, not that usefull for a photo-presentation.

Looks really good... I like your pictures from the FSU places.

A couple of things on the site:
- I found nothing happened several times when I clicked an image - actually the image window was just behind the thumbnail one. I suppose you need to bring it forward each time.
- some of the captions in the multimedia section went by faster than I can read.

many greetings,
greg

hmmm, not sure what you mean about the window... if you click another thumbnail while the photo window is up, it should just replace that window with a new one, not create another.

thanks for the input, everyone.

LOL, looks like a grey box to me. That might have something to do with having Flash disabled though ;)

So you are one of the victims of microsoft policy who attempted to get flash in their hands which forced flash to join Adobe, the microsoft frame block still made many to disable flash in their browser maybe till microsoft is able to buy whole adobe ?
