The first looks very nice in my graphical browsers, but it doesn't
format so well in lynx. The second is much nicer in lynx, but is a less
pretty in the graphical browsers. I favor the first. I really like the
look you're going for with it; the visual elements you've used serve
to aid the function of the site. You're partitioning separate
functional areas and using the design to focus attention on relevant
bits. Some websites are really overpowering and visually noisy; yours
is quite clean.

But I think--given the nature of ClassicCmp--it'd be nice to have it
render a bit friendlier for text based browers like lynx. It is
possible to design a site that looks decent in both types of browsers.
Slashdot, somewhat surprisingly, looks decent in lynx. The
http://WWW.NetBSD.ORG/ site is another good example.
