Looks aight, colours are good.

But I don't particuarly like the letters, im sure there's another font that's similar, and easier to read.
Also the blending between colours is a bit rough, perhaps you could work on that.

Yea, pretty good ducktape :)

yup, the first one looks better imo...
as it is meant to be a simple header, i think the font fits the site well enough, though the white BZFlag layer in the upper-left corner is sorta unnessecary ;)

The "B" is sorta hard to read.

Umm yea the 1st one was better. The squiggly things on the left just seem out of place :P Just try lightening up the black a little around the 'b' and the 1st one would've looked better.

I also don't like that font you used for the 2nd 1 either :P

Use your imagination Ducky :)

I am confused, you need a different web browser to look at the page now?

I don't think web pages are OS specific?

'Cause I can click on pages "1, 2, 3, 4...etc" fine...

I think Win wants you to look at the color scheme there rather than the program on the sidebar.

Ducktape: I very much like your first attempt. I think the font is perfectly readable. The coloration would work better if you moved the gradient to the left a little; i.e. the 'b' wouldn't be as dark.
Well done.

Actually, the 'B' isn't hard to see, it just is a bit dim and it suits the site perfectly ducktape.

Just because of your name, it seems like you should do something like this...

But maybe you already used up all your ducktape for other things... :P

Here is a smaller version if you want it.
