    So if you've read around tpu, I've got a new website and server I just built and put up. It is hosting solaris's new cd. I'm looking for support of the site and feedback, also solaris is the designer so feedback for him is great. I know theres a download rate problem and Ill fix it when I get home. Basically, just check out the site, or better yet, a link in your sig would be greatly appreciated. It also is going to host news of my linux distro ive talked about round tpu. More later -Fox
    www.KoffeeKup.org
    Solaris17 says thanks.

    Looks like your off to a good start. Layout is clean and the colors are easy on the eyes :)

    Opinions;
    If you are going to leave the "KoffeKup Linux Home Page" text in the top box, make it bigger, give it color and use a more interesting font.
    Make the picture of the coffee cup bigger.

    Questions :
    What is supposed to "Ignite my senses"?
    The areas render odd. Some of the corners of the boxes are bevelled, some are not. (I am using IE7)
    What the heck does "<div id="BreadCrumb"></div>" do in the source :D

    Good job. Keep up the good work.

    Is it going to be a Linux only site?

    no it isnt its primarily linux seeing as it is going to be for Fox's own OS thats in the works but it will also include other tech like things similar to tpu and other tech sites...hey thnx for pointing out those bugs can you send me a screen shot of those buttons? and were the code is showing?

    Isn't Fox's OS a Linux distro?

    I just asked about the BreadCrumb code after doing a "view source" to see what you were up to. ;)

    thanks for registering guys i saw that :) illw ork on the background and the buttons on the forums blue doesnt match well but their is still no vpn so i send him files and he needs to do it but once we have vpn all going and stuff the site will get updated more quickly..as for <div id="BreadCrumb"></div> i actually dont know i opened up dreamweaver and made a basic template and now im just coding the site up is saves me a few hours than making all the buttons and stuf mysefl when i can just edit premade to get what i want and that line was already their but i thinki it has something to do with caching and seeing what pages on the site you visit...only seems to be on the "home" page though non of the others.

    Nice forum colours. Add linux news to the homepage. Next get the enabling sli to your forums. A Linux games thread with review is gonna get you 2k page views(It happened to my friends website-the one in my sig).
    You might want to review some popular distro's too.
    It needs Crazy pictures thread ;)
    P.S I joined the forums too :)

    I can't download Solaris' utility on your site. It starts, but then I get a timeout.

    Please put some padding in your header and content div. Text should never touch div edges.

    I'm pretty sure it's koffeekup. What kind of connection does the server use?

    i think he runs a 4mbD 1-2mbU i uplaoded to his site because he lives like 30miles away from me so it was the quikest UL i could do only prob is his server is getting crazy taxed because of ppl who want to DL the disk but im going to fix it seeon when he gets home i have a cheap trick that will fix these probs so ppl that are helping me out like you wont need to struggle with slow connections.

    You spelled "Reviews" wrong in the left content page. Also I can forsee some copyright issues with CoffeeCup Inc.
