yay!
I hope that nothing I say comes off as a complaint. I'm very grateful to have volunteer service. I just think it'd be cool to have a site with appearance designed by 42. But I hesitate to ask him since I know he's super busy.

Psh, he hasn't had a job in over 4 months.  And he just graduated from school (he had all but one class, and indipendent study at that).  You just need to convince him to do it.

I've just seen how many projects he always has on his plate. But I will perhaps try to flag him down.

So, I'm getting graphics ready. Hopefully they will be done by Thursday.

Lol.  Nice one, Gemm.  You hadn't made me laugh in a while--I was beginning to worry that you'd lost your edge!

Well you know, I like to save things. Keep them under wraps, and then wait for the moment to strike.

Oar I could just not be posting as much anymore because of unforseen things.

Um, Sprig I placed a lot of the main graphics on the network. Photoshop cut them up and placed them in a html table for me. Don't feel obligated to use any spacer graphics. I also include a doc with some of the color configurations.

I just need to make some decisions on the side boxes. And I want to make some nameplates for the different sections.

ok I've messed around with what you gave me 42 and I'm going to have to have you make some changes to how everything is croped.  Also I'm going to have to have you either make a new version of image_12 or seperate the background from the foreground.

I've got it a little farther along, but there's a few problems.  One is that he hasn't sized up the site for the side boxes we want and so that's going to affect the layout, and the second has to do with the top of the text box overlaping the logo/menu and how a few of the images were cut.  I've fixed most of the image problems to some extent though.

Edit:  you can see how I'm building it at http://www.brandonsanderson.com/index2.php
