New website tips

Hello,

I recently created one of my first websites on my own that is about free slow computer tips. I have coded a few functions up in asp. If anyone wants to check it out and provide any suggestions or found bugs I would appreciate it. Also, if you have any good tips you think really need to be added, those are welcome too. However, I will be trying to add those as I go along.

Thanks for any help!
