Pretty good instructions

You mayneed some editing as some of the text runs off the page and images cover some of the text.
GREAT book. Can't wait untilI get home to try out some of the routines.
Need topurchase some 16F pics. All I have on hand are 18F1320's
of coarse I could just convert but easier to just get some 16F pics.
going into Oregon today to take grandkid fishing. maybe stop at Fry electronics, see if they have any 16F88 pics.

Hi, I use opera, Just browsing through your pages. The site looks good, one problem though; the text seems to be quite small and hard to read. I would make it bigger (just a suggestion) ;) No other problems, keep up the good work. :)

I visited again

and now can't find what I am pretty sure was there before (images overlapping text.
Yes I agree the text could be larger.
I know first hand how hard it is to construct a website.
I can't wait to get home and try the tuturioals. Thinking of weather to order some 16F88 pics or go with the 18F1320's I have.
could be easier going with the 16F pics but a learning challenge to use the 18F pics.
I like the bottom menue for selecting pages

the only issue i have with your site is that i cant see images well. It would be better to have image clicks open the image on a new page. This way the user can see full size.

didn't think of that AtomSoft

I wonder what software he used??
When I built my website severa lyears ago I learned alot about image maps etc.
If it has lots of images, which slow down the download time then you lost a viewer if it takes more than 5 seconds to load the site.
If you have small images but have them with internal links to larger picture then your ok on download time.
YES larger pictures would aid in the design of the site. But only if you have internal links.
I used NETFIRMS software for free.
not sure if my site is even up anymore??
