Your Friendly Neighborhood Cacodemon
i tried that already, and didn't like the look of it. since i have a site map at the bottom of every page, that i think already looks awesome, plus the frames for people who like them, i don't think a site map on the side is needed.
besides, i find it much easier to just push end to get to the site map, or have it on a frame, compared to scrolling down, and having to find the item you want in the map again.
i don't mind the map using tables, when the page is small, and it's always close. however, some pages are huge already, and it's quicker to use a map at the bottom of the page.
i agree that frames really suck ass... on a computer at low resolutions. however, if the res is pumped up, and the entire map frame is on the screen, it's cool. not everyone has hi-res, so i made an option. i don't wanna be an asshole not giving people a choice, like many sites that have music, flash, frames, sounds, etc that get really annoying, and not being able to turn them off.
of course, that's just my opinion. i'll see what i can do.
i have to wake up in 3 hours so i'm going to bed. talk at you all tomorrow. :)
