Not a bad site, better than anything I've ever made - but then, I have no purpose for my own site. I wrote quite a lot of comments, just don't take them too harshly.
Anyways I think it needs some tweaking with the colors and the fonts. The colors in the web site don't really suit each other, by that I mean when you look at one part of the page and then to another, the colors seem to be at conflict with each other.
If I were to use my own colors, the dark background would go nicely with silver borders. and the areas where there needs to be text I would use a slightly lighter but dark background with grey or white text depending on the shade.
Having seen that you have just used solid color for the different sections and borders, use textures - it makes it much more interesting to view. But then, your reasons for not doing so may be bandwith and load times.
Title: I would suggest that you remove the shadows, in my opinion they kinda jumble all the letters up.
And change the fonts, I'm guessing that you have used Fixsys - the defualt OS font. I would use something a lot smoother and simple, like Arial or Verdana - a lot of creative businesses use them (me too).
Also, it would be nice to remove the highlighted 'Updates' yellow is a color that really shoudn't be used in webpages. You probaly highlighted it so it would stand out, but it would be better if you put it in a frame.
I like the Flash animation a lot, if you made the animation yourself then your pretty good at it. However the head which you have on the left top corner above the animation kind of doesn't fit. You want a page that looks busy and full of activity. The large empty space left of the head isn't good. I would put something there to fill in the space.
And you spelt afterwards as 'afterwords'.
Anyway, what I think is not what you or others think. Hope you read it all and decide wether you agree with my comments or not.
