What is your honest opinion about hex1a4.net/ (http://hex1a4.net/)?

Thank you.

Happy Canada Day! :D

Isn't there already a thread on this? I swear I've seen this before..

Otherwise, rid of the header images, they take too long to load.

Honest opinion?

http://hex1a4.net/img/home_top.png Took WAY too long to load.

Other than that, better than I could do.

Ex web designer here too :)

Nice colours and fonts. The header image is too big and takes too long to load. Other than that its nice.

Agreed, it takes forever to load. BTW, you have a download for Revolution OS, that's illegal. The movie has all rights reserved.

Occasionaly the speed will go down because I'm hosting a few mirrors. Usually things work then suddenly it will slow-down due to the numerous, large file transfers.

The top image is 230kb, that's way too big. A front-page photo on CNN.com for example is only 15-20kb. I have a fast connection, and it took minutes to load--if it's loading faster for you, it's probably loading out of the browser cache.

Use your favorite photo editor to cut this down. Make it a .jpg image and compress it, which you can do without losing noticeable quality.

Loaded fast for me, but I think thats because all of the images had little broken link icons, instead of the actual images.

Randomly says I am denied access to some parts of the site because my ISP is "a direct source of spam"

None of the IPs or ISPs listed there are mine :S

Thanks everyone. It looks my my host is acting up again. This really ticks me off. I wanted to get some feedback on the site before I continue with the next phase, instead I got a load of errors, which will no doubt keep getting worse. :mad:

Anyone know of a good host? I need lots of bandwidth and storage (I have several mirrors and more are planned), lots of cron jobs, at least 2 MySQL databases, FTP, rsync, liberal .htaccess permissions, min 50 email accounts.

I had to reload the page to get the images.....and even then not all of them showed.
