I’ve finally gotten around to redesigning this site. It’s a few months overdue but here it is. There’s still a few things I need to work out but that shouldn’t take too long. Let me know what you think! I had the last design for 6 months and I really liked it but it’s nice to have a change. I’ll write more about the new design later but I hope you like the new look around here!
Ah, I like the new design. I like it much better than the old one. Maybe it’s the colors. The little line that hangs off of the top right corner of the tabs bother me a bit, though.

I’m not sure what it is but the design just irks me. The thing is I can’t even put my finger on it. Maybe it’s the lightish grey? I just don’t like this one that much.

I’m redesigning too! Hopefully your’s will be way cooler than mine, I have no adaptability with design. (That rhymed).

I like the new design, especially the layout. I’d vote for the “Recent Work” block as the best new feature.

Thanks guys! I really apprecieate all your compliments, criticisms, and suggestions. The site is basically finished now but I’m sure I’ll be making a few changes here and there until I redesign again.

For the most part, I like your new design. I do find it a little drab, though.
I’ve got a question (and I’m probably gonna sound like a noob with this one). How do you get the calendar-esque dates on your post? Is there an easy way to do that?

Steven: if you’re using Firefox I suggest you hit ctrl+U. If not just go to Veiw > Source.
It’s pretty simple. It’s just a div with text in it with some padding around it and a background color.
