I'm having a problem downloading the slide presentation.

If you are using AOL, call AOL for support. Why not us? As much as AOL boasts of being number one, they actually rank lowest among the three major browsers (Internet Explorer, Netscape then AOL). One reason is because they do not play well with others. "Others" meaning companies (not owned by AOL) that develop programs designed to be executed from within other applications—-i.e., a Shockwave movie playing in an AOL browser.

I'm a Webmaster and I think the design of your site is great. However, I do not get the connection between the film ‘look’ and the notebook stuff— though it looks nice together!

Since Buckets was a professor, I initially designed the site with an academia theme in mind. In fact, the original opening page had a picture of Buckets paper clipped to the cover of a U of M spiral notebook. As I continued working through this theme, some concern came up that the site might be construed as a product of the university; hence, I moved toward the showbiz feel. Time ran out so I launched with what I had. Since then, the look has kinda grown on me so I've stuck with it.
