As I expect to find some free time in the near future, (now that I have said it, I am sure as hell I will not) I wish to tackle all compatibility and usability issues in my blog. I want you to tell me what they are. You could even make suggestions, but I am not sure I might be able to accommodate all of them.

Problems with the template?
In IE (6) it looks amazing and cool. Though slightly slow and jerky while scrolling (even on a PIII 933MHz with a graphics card)
On a Firefox, it is screwed. The background image of a guy (who is that) comes forward, and all the links go backward (behind that and is almost invisible) and you cannot click on it.

I've been a regular visitor here before the boy-in-blue transformation in the bg....and so far, everything works/looks cool:-)

The title on top could be the link to the main blog page, instead of the current link in the sidebar.
I keep clicking on the text that says Mdeii life and waiting for it to go home.
It could also be alittle bigger.

Anand, I am sure the purpose of you blog is to share, dispense with your thoughts, stories, yada yada... so showing off your graphics skills is incongruous and worse it slows down your site. Remember this: 10% of the male population in this world is color-blind. Use contrasting BG and text. Your site could do with some color-scheme revamping (to make it reader-friendly).
'Wouldn't that affect my aesthetics?' Well, that's why there are designers and there are designers. If it were that easy even I would have become a designer. Hope you take my comments in good spirit and pay me if you use my ideas ;-)
Intense_red? I will share the screenplay with you. It was co-authored. So that you know who wrote the shitty part. ;-)

I am sending u an email with 3 different screen shots of ur page, the difference being the window size. Somehow your page is rendered differently as per the size of the window - at least thats what i see here when i open it on IE 6... chk it out.. I think the key is in the table widths...

Sat: Yeah! Thanks for the feedback dude.
Kribs: No problemo... I ignored it!
Pavithra: I never knew I had regular readers. :p Thanks a lot!
CC (or one of your avatars): I specifically said.. identify problems but not to advise. So screw you! :p BTW when you roll the mouse over some text and the pointer does not change to a pointing finger, do you still keep clicking on it? Thats a serious usability issue.
Otherwise, taken you points on the top bar.
Alex: Mr Bean and suggestions..? no thanks!
Suman: Yeah! Now I know why I didn't become a designer ;)
I have already started making some changes. Once I have them online, you can send me your comments on that too. Maybe i'll take at-least those in good spirits. :p
I'd love to read your co-authored screenplay. Is it a mere coincidence that you talk about contrasting blog color scheme and intense red? Gives me some ideas.
Now for the payment part... hmmm I am expecting a big consignment of nanomagnetic light converters to pass through Venutian customs anytime. Once I get my cut on the deal, I can teleport about 3 million martian rupees. You might have to wait for a few weeks though.
Anti: Thank you so much man! I have replied to your e-mail.

Not what I was searching for, but none the less and interesting blog here. Thanks for putting it up. I've enjoyed reading alot of the text here. I got you bookmarked for the future, I'll be back.
My site is a bit different, some think it's odd. I guess it's a matter how you look at it. I have a mens male enhancement reviews related site. Most of the articles are on mens male enhancement reviews.
