i have recently updated the design on parts of my website. What do you think? I am open to all suggestions, so feel free to let me know. The update isnt complete, so some of the text in areas is placed in for filler text. thanks.

Ha ha haaa!
If I might make two suggestions:

1) The title text in the upper left hand corner of your pages (such as "welcome") are anti-aliased. I would take off the anti-aliasing to make the text look sharper.

2) Use résumé. (Note the accents.) The people worth your time might pay attention to little stuff like that!

Looks good! :)

P.S. Welcome to MacRumors!

Not bad, nice and tight overall. I'd remove the pics of your pet that are out of focus, they just don't serve any purpose, and you'll still have plenty left over.

And what did you do to burn yourself, ow!:eek:

as a former hr guy, your resume should have work experience from latest to earliest...otherwise it's great

when you finish college with your degree, then leave out the high school

the biggest mistake one can make is have a resume with too much information, but yours is perfect

sometimes a techie like you, or me these days, has a lot to put down and while we may know computers, we don't always know resumes and i have seen three page resumes with jargon any regular hr person would have no idea about

titles like BA, BS, AA, AS, MSEE, MCSE, and A+ are known in silicon valley and perhaps elsewhere, where tech titles on your resume like MCDBA, CISSP, CCDP, LN4E, OCP and others not commonly known to hr people should be spelled out

don't use terms like MAN (metropolitan area network) or something technical beyond the understanding of the simple hr clerk and use instead "network" or "local area network" and use "ethernet" instead of something like category 5 unshieded twised pair

of course, you may know this already since us techies do speak a different language

the website is cool

my wife and i almost got a bearded dragon since gila monsters are illegal in california and could kill me if its having a bad day;) :p :p :p :p :p ;)
