I agree with the above comments, get rid of the frames and the background. A very light gray might look good. I didn't care for the looping flash. Just let it run once than stop the loop. I also didn't like the animated ad in "partners". A few touch ups and it's looking good.
The site looks great! Only thing that jumped out to me was the grey bar located under the menu buttons. It was just an empty grey bar, and I did not realize that sub-menu buttons appeared on it until I actually clicked a button. It may confuse some of your visitors, but the idea is good.
