Thanks, just what I needed first thing in the morning! I can see stars when I close my eyes as well now...

Actually, I 've seen that particular feature on another site, not a designers one though, - it's a bit on the striking side. Judging from what I've seen in the ether there must be a market for this sort of thing.
Here you can find other great sites...

It’s easy to understand why they make this claim (some of the effect will be lost, since the star-struck black background failed to copy over (and good thing, too!):
We design some of the lowest priced web sites on the WWW

Bud Uglly is still inspiring people to reach his pathetically low standards, even years later. ("Insert page title here" still breaks me up.)

But, but, I LOVE Bud Uglly (thanks for showing me) and I'd only use that star-crossed web design business if I were trying to sell used cars online.<BG>

What a site for sore eyes (if they weren't before, they will be now!)

This bears an uncanny resemblance to my deliberately bad site that I show people.

Even the timestamp is wrong: it says it is EST and it's BST. Doh. What a wonderful item to critique for wannabe designers!

Oh, and I just tried the feedback form, and get an error from the form handling site as the form is out of date. Just perfect.

I have sold two used cars on line and, trust me, even for that use, you still would not want to use that Web site design business.

For me the time stamp shows Australian Eastern Standard Time. ;-)

Oh I don't know. The Used Car lots have something in common with that site, I thought. Both are a bit gaudy, flashy, loud... what you might call "attention getting." <BG>
