That's just being silly Air;), a company of AV's standing would outsource their design work.

I can exclusively reveal that the contract was secured by
the best web design company in the whole wide world [humorchannel.com].

Now $12.50 per page may not seem to be an "earner" but x that by 250,000,000.

ROFL & Then some

How can I ever hope to compete with a company that can afford that kind of talent, I'm doomed I tell ya!

I only got to see a few pages (wish I would have kept them). I didn't think it was all that bad. Better than Hotbot or Lycos (shudder).

Tell you the truth, I really like the looks of their current home page; but I wish it wasn't quite so spammy with links everywhere.

I really don't care about the home page. I just wish they would clean up their search results listings - I don't care for all that 'translate', 'related', and the impossible to read urls.

That humor page is funny. The links off the page are even funier - the one on design tips and the client list should hit home with a few who read here. It reminds me of this killer site. [gunslinger.com]

Just came across this one:

Don't even think of taking a peek unless you have a *fast* connection.

AV have gone live with the new look, IMHO a *very* bad move.

Portal-wise I've seen worse. SE-wise, it's a good portal ;)

I'd assume we are going to see an AV update this week sometime with the new listings. They've been on this particular index since when, April?

I just looked at Webtek's client list, and they're pulling in 35 dollars every three weeks. There's no way we can go that low! This will start a price war, mark my words!
