    Hey guys, I just thought I'd share a link to my redesign. It's still a bit rough on the edges, but it's definitely an improvement over the last (at least I think so). I also moved to the tumblr platform which should prove to be interesting. :cool:

    Any comments/critiques are welcome. :) BTW, it's probably messed up in IE so you don't need to mention that. :D IE accounts for about 8% of my visits and it is a personal site so it's not really an urgent priority for me. I'll get around to it someday.

    not bad. iWeb? my only complaint is the side bar on the left. The copy right overlays the "Tapbots" image, and the "Tapbots" image is cut off. That is on a 1024x768 Screen. On my 1680x1050, it scales fine. Fix that and its perfect :D

    Yea, I can see how that can be an issue. Thanks for the input. :) It's not iWeb, btw. I use a plain old text editor (textmate) for my sites.

    I have to admit I've always been a fan of your work, it's always so clean and crisp. This site is no different, it is just plain good design.

    its quite nice. My advice is to move the Tapbots image up just a little, and put the copyright right under it.

    It's great, could you tell me how to add those sort of drop shadows behind the text?

    cool design, although when you scroll down i would have that black dotted background thing to scroll as well, instead of being static.

    also, congrats on the baby and successful marriage ;)

    clean design, but personally i have not been a fan of frames and long scrolls. Just my two cents. Otherwise, visually i have no issues with it.

    No frames on this site. just use of a few css properties to fix the left side content.
