It's not that I don't like them, they often look very impressive but it's the fact that quite often, people get carried away with flash animations and they can take forever to load (even on broadband) if not used with care.
I just think the substance and content of the site is more important than flashy intros and loading pages etc.
your site certainly doesn't seem boring to me. I don't design websites, i do all the other stuff, but even as a website user i dont like overcrowded pages with too much animation. I think the overall layout and colour co-ordination is good so no worries there. It has an overall classic look rather than cyber-junkie which i think is good. well done :thumbup:
