    Chrome has a nice device emulation button in the debug console area. It's the little blue mobile device looking button near the elements tab. Excellent design btw. http://puu.sh/i9fvD/db86acb3fe.png

    Getting 500 error, but when the site was up, it looked nice on a 2560 x 1440p resolution :)

    At last, you finally have the new site. 

    It looks good

    the menu could be more accessible

    the sub menu could be shown just below it instead of on the left

    for e.g the user has to be smart enough to not mouse over to the other top menu before reaching its sub

    the menu crissic has is nice 

    the images on 'about us' page http://buyvm.net/about-buyvm/could be avoided (or replaced by any normal ones), thank god you have an underwear!

    the text link  http://buyvm.net/about-us/(found at bottom) results in a 404

    Blame Fran. See? You feel better already.
    Woops. It seems that the page you're looking for is currently not available.

    I think Buy ate some Layer 7 for breakfast causing a 500 for a bit.

    That About Us on footer should be fixed.  I think 5 of us dinged Fran about it.

    Site looks good from here at 1920 x ehh whatever... loads fast too.

    It looks great on the desktop browser. It could just be an ipad issue. I was using chrome on it when I took the screen grabs.

    I think that BrowserStack could help here.

    Not too shabby. I like the "Overwhelmed?" & lifesaver icon at the top.

    November 2012 was a good month for testimonials, eh? :)

    Very nice website! I like it. I did notice it's not mobile ready or doesn't seem to be. But honestly I don't think that's a problem

     I have to go through and find more to add. The testimonial pages are done through MYSQL so I can easily pull the data as needed.

    Noted, it's a 50/50 on people that care/don't care. I would've liked it to be responsive from the get go but that'll have to be done after the fact. The designer I normally use seems to be really busy though so I'm not sure if I can get him to do it.

    Do you feel better? :)

    I thought the about us page images were hilarious and fits with our slogan 'Affordable VPS hosting with a touch of insanity'.

    The about us link is all fixed up.

    I liked the old site better, to be honest :)

    Anyhow, one big issue I can see is with the readability of the text on the frontpage. It's too gray. Especially in the top section.

    I'll see about fixing the font colour up there :) Maybe go a bit brighter.

    joepie91 you must be approaching 99 years old. Anybody here knows that the new website is superior than the old one, even if it were unreadable LOL. This new design puts buyvm in a new level. Super professional. Of course it gets ridiculous in the about section, but hey thats part of the pony culture.

    As a note, even if Fran were gay, he is a great coder. LOL hahaha

    Surprised JoePie91 isn't browsing with a non graphic terminal browser ;)  No offense meant, superior such can be and much more to the point.

    The new BuyVM site at least addresses the products they have.  Old only was missing things, kind of like how BuyShared lacked a site for eons ...

    But, contrast could be a problem on the new BuyVM site, especially where folks have contrast turned down or monitor calibration adjusted in a big way.  Historically why, in part, links were blue with red prior clicked on vs. white background and black text.   Still the standard for the most part in editors and productive things.
