Why do you particaully want those two to read it? Anyone that knows HTML would help!
That is not a site, there isn't even a return on it! LEARN HTML first.

Ok then, first bit of help, a return (new line) in HTML means nothing, absolutely nothing. You need to use <br>.

You're linking to files (the banner and updatepicture) on your harddrive. That wont work. You have to upload them to your Netfirms account first and then link to them there.

Also the rest of your update-pictures looks stretched, you should try and modify them. Myabe only use a portion of the picture, instead of the entire picture.

Edit: Aslate beat my to it. Stupid 56k connection, you go squish now.

Perhaps because you are viewing them offline and have the file in:
C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/lee/Desktop/Futurama%20Guides/Images.html
If i create those folders on my PC and have the file on my PC it works. Infact i just tried it and it works like that.

But ignore that 100% as that may confuse you, but not people that know how the internet or a hyperlink works.

Hopefully I should have a Futurama epside that you can look at if you are bored!
 It's a DIVPro Picure at the bottom of the page. I'll let you know if that is working!
 Have a look now to see if it is.

I like the site Lee. You need to do more pages and stuff, It'll look better then, plus work on a diffrent design! I like it but it's not all that when you look at all the other sites!

Check out the first banner

Then check out it's actual size:
 http://robbo1.netfirms.com/Banner_Fry_Hurt.JPG
EDIT: It's a netfirms account, i think you have to copy and paste. If not, you can click and drag the picture into the address bar from the previous link.

I'd love to use that as a banner on my site!

Dear god Lee, you don't even know how to resize a fucking picture, you shouldn't be allowed to make a website. Using the height=xx and width=xx tags is pointless when used like that. To resize an image, use PSP or Photoshop.

Another rant: You're hotlinking the buddie buttons from other sites! Don't! Copy them, save them on your webspace, and use that!

Lee, notice this little snippet I have taken from The Neutral Planet (sorry, I mean "Netral" ):

I would be very grateful if you could add a link to TNP. Because this is a free site I can't let you direct link to the buttons. So if you could choose one of these links, save it and then upload it to your site and link it back to TNP that would be nice and helpful

Simple no?

As i've now said on my edited Support page: The largest button is 16.4kb (on average 2.5kb), this is a puny amount of webspace, but alot to hotlink on a popular site (well, i won't have trouble there!).

I don't want to be picky, but there's also the lack of grammar - for example, in your legal disclaimer:
"Lee's Futurama's Pictures it's maintained.... There's sloppy english everwhere - and your profile says you're from England, so I guess language isn't a problem. If you take the effort to write properly, more people will take the time to look at the site. On a closer look, the english on this site really is rubbish (I'm sorry if this sounds blunt, but no one will read a site if it's written sloppily).

Also, do you really need to save the discliamer text as a .sure I get the 'Flash Animation' section either - because there's no flash animation actually on the gif - it's in the same style as the rest of the website, and it just uses up bandwidth (OK, so that's not really an issue in today's broadband world, but it's still nice to care   smile ).

I'm not sure I get the 'flash animation' section on the site - because there is no flash animation (just .gif animation). And there is far, far too much hotlinking on the site...

Why Hotlinking Is Wrong
1) It uses up the bandwidth of other people's sites, which they probably have to pay for (I know I do).

2) Images you're hotlinking too can be taken down at short notice, leaving you with a dead link.

3) Many sites deny hotlinking, leaving you with a dead picture (and this has happened a lot on your site.

4) It's just plain rude!
*************************

There's also dodgy linking all over the site - on your 'links' page, your legal disclaimer seems to be linked to a Simpsons site???

If you want to make a good looking site, why not try reading "Don't Make Me Think", by Steve Krug - a great book on web usuability, or if you're up for more of a challenge one of the Jacob Nielson usability books.

Additional: On a side note, bear in mind that you're supposed to obtain permission for fan art that you put on your site if it isn't your own - I just thought I'd point this out.

Additional Additional: Oooo...I found a dead link, which would be your 'old news' page.

I'm new. Soo me. I didn't do the layout. One message from my mate who is sitting next to me right know, he says "Get a life"

Lee, if you can't take a little criticism aimed at helping your site get better, then maybe you ought to close it down, because unless you heed some of the advise, the visitor count will hit 1 very quickly, and that will be you.

It's a good site, but there are many spelling errors.
