As I can't afford to check it right now. I can only offer this advice:
Why does your site require the installation of Microsoft Silverlight?
Some people find it off-putting to be required to install a special plugin they're not familiar with (I, atleast, didn't know about it before)
It may make the site better, more beautiful or enable some great feature otherwise un-attainable..
But it may also drive visitors and potential costumers away
Just a though

Yes this is true. Over time Silverlight will be a more viable solution.
Over time I will also be able to fully support Adobe Flash, but onfurtunately I cannot afford the full range software sweet.
Thanks for your feedback it is appreciated, and I agree with you.
This is not my companies main site, just a site to put my thoughts and creativity.
Yes I know, site was thrown together in a few hours, and is a work on progress. I have made a few changes to the CSS, and site looks ok now.
Silverlight is a much more difficult interface to make work in browsers, unfortunately I cannot yet afford the full Adobe Designer/Developer Software Suite.
I do not know if you knew of this service, but it is great if you do not have the time to invest in multiple systems with different types of monitors.
Check this out EagleEye:
As far as the browser problems, here is a great tool to test before you implement: http://www.totalvalidator.com This site gives you a great way to view a screenshot of multiple desktop environments. You thought things were bad now, wait until IE version 8 comes out. Many problems already in the beta version.
Great Background. I felt that you should include a few buttons to control the speed of the text as it scrolls down and also maybe a pause button, I had a phone call just into the text and had to deal with it, was not able to pause or rewind, kind of frustrating. I do like the idea of it though, it kept your attention on the text. Did not have any problems loading or browsing, I already have silver light installed and am using Firefox. Hope this helps.

Thank you Uncle Fester.
This is my first try at a Silverlight App, and is more a site to just express my strange ways of seeing things, and also try to help others that may be lost.
It is also meant to be a site that will encourage people to get help that are in need of it, by mocking the very viewpoint some might take.
Buttons, additional pages, functionality, etc, will come with time.
The ultimate goal is to make a change for the good, but if only it is a site that allows me to express myself, I guess this is ok as well.
