Hi everyone,

I originally produced a quick mock-up for the front page about 2 weeks 
ago, which Chris kindly placed at 
http://forevermore.net/mythtv/mockups/maryau1.jpg for me.  I've since 
had a bit of time to rethink the original design for the home page and 
produced 3 new ones.  You can find the new ones at 

They are all similar with the first two being almost identical but for 
the difference in the color themes to find which was more appealing and 
appropriate.  The third one is based on the colors and left-hand menu 
used on http://newmyth.forevermore.net.

I wanted to add a bit of a mythical feel to it and that's why I have the 
guy/cyborg coming out out of the screen and striking the logo with some 
lightning bolts.  I also wanted the page to look modern, hence my 
decision to use the glass/metallic/chrome surfaces.  To keep it more in 
context, I added the DVD, casette, TV antenna and coaxial cable pictures 
in the 3rd design.

If you feel this is moving in an acceptable direction, I will work on a 
design for the internal pages.
