hey cameron,
i meant that to navigate the site it bounced and moved around until it rested, and I found that hard on my eyes trying to track and get it right.
I respect your knowledge and enjoy your contibutions, its hard to know what to access when you are new at looking around.

I really liked the bold look of this site - loved the typography, but the flicking numbers thing quickly drove me a bit crazy.... Would have liked to have been able to see more visual examples, not just text..
