CBM Borg is getting a facelift

Being work on a new theme for the site for a few days now and wanted to show you what's coming..

This is what its going to look like..

This is now the main site the old one has be removed..(all game launchers are hosted on the site now,Download one at a time please)

Here is the link to the new design..(thanks goes to Heps for the webspace)
http://cbmborg.rumpigs.net/

Or you can still use this http://cbmborg.zapto.org/

See what you think..

Suggestions welcome..?

If you have a idea for the logo/banner at the top its welcome too..well this site not just for me is it..

I love the JAC64 emulator how about you..?

I just updated the theme and new banner, now have a look and see what you think,you can use the old url now..????

It looks old and is lacking design. With a facelift, did you mean pinching the cheek and dragging it downward?

I guess you're building it up right now, but in the current state:

You need bigger smallest font size, visually better separation of other text from the main text, Youtube embed frames must be wider, it's completely unclear that main is scrollable because you use frames.

Using frames will make it impossible for someone to link directly to good content they've found. Luckily, the redirect from cbmborg to juniorwebdevsnet2 fortunately doesn't stop Googlebot from crawling the site, but clicking a Google result that goes to your site results in a timeout. Serious business that, as visitors will just think the server is down and click another search result.

for making it validate, unravel the nesting of the divs though which are causing the header to be aligned with the "rightcolumn" div. And what's with the surrupticious link to loanking.com.au in the footer?

I made it small cos my laptop(my old one) only has a res of 1024x768,I will try and get rid of the frames but that means making more pages.

I can only do so much cos of if i move one thing then something else it out of place and have to work out how to get it back to that position.
You only get a timeout on juniorwebdevsnet2.zapto.org is when the server is down.(its not up all the time cos my servers PSU broke and i am using my laptop to run the sites now).I have posted about it.
Thanks for your comments.

Love the banners you made synchro,will it be ok to use the first one,can you do it without the rest of the site please and put your name in small in the bottom left as credit to you for making it (c)synchro(Yes Im a Star Trek fan.. )..thanks..

Try again it was offline when you tried it..( this is a wip site ATM) most of the time it will be online between 12pm to 2am GMT(All my site will be,im in the UK see)

Will be moving it to a different server soon so it will be online 24/7 sorry of the inconvenience..

Anyone want me to add a page to the site,it can be about anything to do with Commodore related stuff..??
