*ZZZZ* huh what? What a dream. I dreamt I made "important" art. Now I know better.

If confusion and self-seriousness sold, you'd be a freakin' millionaire, pal. I suggest a "hints" page, so people know just what the hell your point is.

This is pretty cool.

I disagree with Leaf Erikson, or whatever his name is. Content is most important, but context is interesting and effective. This is obvious, I suppose; that's my point.

great site, and here is something you want to see!

Your site is great. It's refreshing to see that people are supporting art and its propagation> I think you should read what's coming here: I'd like to call your attention to a relatively new site on the WEB. It has all the exciting features of a good htm, but I believe it's way superior to any of them because of the very special things it offers. It's not a supermarket, but an eclectic yet universal selection of items. While it has some features that can be construed as being outlandish, they are there only to attract the masses. The knowledgeable surfer will instantly discover the treasures offered at this site. Just to wet your appetite, there is an original Tibethan manuscript, thousands of years old, offered for sale. Many other artifacts, Hungarian folkloric art, serigraphs of the works of the famous Hungarian born French painter Vasarely. and even an original novel are offered to the browser. I am surfing the Web for quite some time now, but this is the first time I have the compulsion to try and bring a specific site to the world's attention. The webmaster is young, has good taste and deserves to be helped a bit. There just might be a story there for you! Sincerely yours; Andre Bodnar

How did you do it?

Clicked on the Firefly icon and found myself logged into the fly quicker that when I access it directly. No "Sorry" page, no waiting, vo java errors. All from one click without entering anything else. Scary in one sense but impressive in another.
