.... and we have lift-off!

That's right kids! As of June 1, 2010, the fruit of my labor, the sole source of my livelihood, the child born of my blood, sweat and tears, was brought forth into the realm of public servers. No longer sentenced to a life of invisibility, locked away in some stuffy, password-protected sector of space relegated for development purposes, the College's new website is officially live. FINALLY.

I can hear you whispering. I can feel your questioning stares. "Soo.... why did it take you twenty days to make this announcement?" you ask. Yes, you did ask. You want to know. I know you want to know because my spidey sense tingled. Well, allow me to put your frazzled mind at ease: it took twenty days to announce this spectacular career feat because it took twenty days to rifle through my inbox and complete all the updates, changes, corrections, omissions, deletions and feature requests I received immediately following the College-wide announcement that the site was going live.

"Soo.... where would one find this magnificent piece of design meets development meets utopia sprinkled with love?" Yeah, I heard that one, too. It's the spidey sense. It's enhanced by my severe lack of interaction with the outside world. You will find the source of my obsession at [link removed due to severe paranoia]. Praise is desired. Constructive criticism is welcome. Mean-spirited criticism will land you on my permantent ignore list and make me cry. DON'T MAKE AN UNSTABLE WOMAN CRY, DAMMIT!

Didn't render correctly on my Opera browser. Specifically, the flash header is appearing much lower than it should, chopping the logo in half.

Everything looks good to me. Very awesome! Good job!

In Chrome, "financial aid", "student life" and "continuing education" in the main menu all wrap, with the second word hidden under the flash object.
Don't hate me.

I don't hate you... yet. :P

Opera is chaotic evil. IE is neutral evil. Chrome is a straight neutral. But Firefox is pure, innocent, lawful good backlit with a glowing white aura.

In all seriousness though, I am working on fixing the alternate browser issues.. but I have to fix them on the development server before I implement changes on the live server. I'll post a short update and ask y'all to check again in a week or so when I've had time to finish it). And thank you for the feedback. You guys rock! :wub:

Looks good to me! Hooray Firefox! :)

Lovin' the Bowie reference in the title. ;)

Looks great! Well organized, easy to navigate, and as far as I can tell everything works(Chrome).

Job well done. Give yourself a pat on the back(I'm sure you already have, so give yourself another one).

Edit: Ooh, I do have to mention that on the main page the "Privacy" link and every link to the right of it at the bottom are basically hidden by the "Garret Lakes Art Festival" thing.

Edit #2: Seems to be fixed now? I swear it wasn't fixed 2 minutes ago!
