    Hi Everyone

    My website is almost finished, but you can allready now see how the design will look. As i wrote before i´m a graphic designer so i designed it all by my self, so it is always nice to get your appenion on colors etc...

    I made the site in danish and english at the same time, hope you like it...

    Perhaps some videos like those on Peter Gade's site would be good; however, I'm not sure what value they would be to those who don't speak Danish.

    It is always interesting to hear top class players` like yourself express your opinions on personal views such as favourite tournaments, opponents styles racquet techology etc -this is the sort of information that can`t be found in regular publications-without giving away ant trade secrets of course

    :)

    Looks great Thomas but I'm concerned about full-flash websites; unless properly streamlined (even those streamlined ones) would take a long time to load. Over a 56kbps line, it could be very slow... just IMHO. :)

    How about using CSS? Got some problems with Internet Explorer but there are fixes available that I can show you. Loads faster as well.

    Thanks. Good work btw. Looking forward to it.

    it's neat :) but it'd be more appropriate to discuss this elsewhere (not in thomas' forum/thread). how about you start a thread in the introduction forum? :)

    looking forward to visiting your site once it's fully constructed, thomas;)

    Pohl, I love the concept of your website. But there are two things I felt uncomfortable,
    - the font color: white color on red is not easy to read
    - the homepage: as it is based on a graphic image, I cannot read on my tiny monitor :)

    BTW, welcome to BC/BF, and hope someday you can have your own space on Pro. Players here.
