CSS Query (I've been out of practice)

Hi guys, I've been majorly out of practice with website development, and I'm currently developing a website for a friend of mine. Essentially he wants a scrolling website with anchor links, which is fine. Basically I have whipped up a pretty awesome background for him, and have even got it to fit to the page using background size to "cover".. Now my only query is, is it possible to get the background image to A, stretch the screensize - while B, following the user's scrolling, as it's going to be a lengthy website I don't just want the background to end... Here's the code I have whipped up for the background so far, I have tried/tested adding "background-attachment..." but unfortunately that doesn't seem to work? Thanks!

RockSteady: The Network

Here's a Client-based logo I have produced with the following limitations: The logo had to have a stencil layout for the icon, mono-color, no effects and must be strong to represent the company title. I really like the feel for the logo, although I reckon the stenciling for the Rhino could get cleaned up slightly, but a friend told me the Jagged-ness gives it a more, rock-type/rock feel.... ? The 'The Network' text is debatable right now, Because when the logo is made smaller that text will not be visible, but in theory that can just be removed on small print based logos (or even just the stencil rhino can be used without the "Rocksteady" Text)

"The Sideline Story" Typography

It seems recently posting some of my Typography artwork has got some positive Feedback, So I thought I would post something (from time-to-time, like somewhat an art blog?) of relevant art of day-to-day experiences.. Anyway, this one, "The Sideline Story", is easy to relate to, I was flipping through some old school photos when I had a sudden flashback of when my old IT Teacher told me I would never succeed in anything if I left School to pursue my dreams. To you reading it may sound like nothing, but many years on I find myself remembering, and smirking remembering to always aspire, just to prove him wrong to a certain degree... syn. If any of you like my art, feel free to follow.. @rjcreative

Rj's Logo Concept

Ok, so here is a logo concept I produced for a design/development/photography business local to me called Rj's. Now the running theme for the website is 50's diner look, but they wanted to keep the logo as generic as possible for business purposes, so I ran with a more.. 50's colour scheme, boisterous, especially with the text to stand out. I know the background doesn't do it much justice but I need to go out soon so just a temp thing so its not just portrayed on a white background (lame). The only infringement I've had so far by the client is to make it more saturated, but by personally looking at 50's examples, they seem to like in-your-face colour schemes and even neon. So... feedback?
