A much needed update to KookaBay.com on 04/14/2011 08:36:59 MDT Print View

I have updated Kooka Bay and would love to hear your feedback. Over the next few days and weeks I will be adding things like Down and synthetic insulated airmats. New pictures and information will be added throughout the site. New ideas are welcome!

It is looking nice. Thanks for the update. Can I link to you from my site? www.biointegra.us

One suggestion: lower the font size and page width a bit for fitting on Netbooks, iPads and smaller screens more easily.

[One typo on the skunkworks page: "Carbon fiber rots strengthen the rim"]

Looks good! (I also noticed the "rots" but I'll bet you've fixed it already.)

Once the info is on the site for the synthetic and down insulated pads, I am sure you will not have to spend so much time on email (we recently went through several rounds of email before I ordered!).

I'm looking forward to sleeping on my new pad this summer!

Re the large print mentioned by a gould: even for my aging vision it doesn't need to be quite that large.

Rots instead of rods is one of those things a spell checker wont catch. I'll see how smaller fonts look. I'm using at a 24" 1920x1200 LCD so pages can look smaller! I'll check it out on my notebook. On my phone at 800x480 the page is a little wide. I have tested the site in Opera mobile 10, IE mobile, IE6, Firefox, and Chrome. I just updated pillows with new pictures :)

Minor Spelling Errors - LuxLite, coolest on 04/14/2011 17:00:37 MDT Print View

Bender,

The site looks good. I'm waiting for pages with the insulated mats to make up my mind about ordering one.

I noticed two minor spelling errors.

1) LuxLite -- you wrote LuxLlte
2) coolest -- you wrote coolset (... showcase our coolset custom work.)

Don't forget us Mac users, please! The site looks fine in Safari 4.1, too.

I can't access kookabay.com on a couple of browsers but can access all other cottage companies. Is this one temporarily down or is the problem with my connection?

Thanks,

Jeremy.

Thanks for that link David, a shame to see. Anybody else thinking about taking his place?

Also need someone to make ultralight floating tubes for rapids!
