Outstanding page, Jeff! It is very user-friendly, and the photos you display are excellent. I like the Photo of the Day feature. Hm, have you thought about offering that service to other webmasters, ﾃ? la iKjeld.com? That would be good promotion...
Just two minor suggestions:
1. perhaps you should reduce the number of Amazon ads on your index page
2. try to install a forum script right on your web site to avoid everyone.net's popup ads
Oh, and don't forget to sign up to our new banner exchange, the current exchange will only be functional until the beginning of January.
as for free boards, I'd suggest you to use phpBB or IB (Invision Board), I *heard* that YaBB is a consuming large amounts of server resources, but that could also relate to former versions. All of these boards do not use ads.
