    Kirby, i love the idea, great new way to advertise i think that would really hitch alot more people than normal methods. How exactly are you considering this? Making videos and sending free videos? If so how costly might that be?

    It looks professional to me. I like it. I watched the video using a T1 line. How does it look at 28 or 56K ?
  5. Great idea Ray, as usual. Should be a good marketing tool for you. Expect lots of new business from that.

    Rich, I have attached it to the front page of my home site. I can also email it to potential customers who are interested. I plan on looking into making a CD version and giving to customers during bids. Blanks CD's are $12 per 50 so it would'nt be too much.

    captivating....I give it 2 thumbs up....way up. It looks like another tool to use on the website to attract new clientele.

    I feel like I'm watching an episode of NYPD Blue with the camera always moving...kinda dizzying. It's hard to really get a good look at the photos since they don't hold still and are constantly fading in or out. And since the strength is in the photos, maybe you should slow down the effects.

    ...Just my two cents.

    I think it hypnotized me last time I looked at it! It runs for a minute, the more photos I use the shorter time they are viewed. I hoped to get as many good photos in as possible, however I may play around a little and reduce the number of photos and see what happens.
