Wow. Cool. :)

And the page design for the tutorials is wonderful as well. Though I'm a bit confused about the scimitar theme: How does that connect to the graphics? :P

Btw, does the the full list load as slowly for everyone else, or is it just my PC. It basically freezes for about a minute when loading the page.

Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair.
I have a love of woodwind instruments.

The blade is just a blade. From Avernum, of course. Maybe I shuld have dirt dripping off it.

As to the load - what's happening is the entire DB (not the graphic, but all the text info, urls, etc.) is loading into memory. I'd really like to have a "Please wait..." message appear, but can't see how to do it and have it disappear on command via Javascript.

The obvious solution is to make the text file smaller, and the most logical way to do this is to remove all color-shifted edits done by Daniel Ray, and place them in a special downloadable zip file external to the DB. This will shrink the DB down 2/3s.

I'll keep considering this, but I'm not making the change any time soon, if at all.
