    I think it is really coming along. The sight looks a lot better now than it did with the first post.

    Try pulling it up in FF 2.x. The /newcode/ area looks decent in that, but the main page is still out there. Missing the rounded corners and such. And I know it is still a work in progress, but some of the links hit a 404 error. Should at least have some sort of placeholder, even if it just links back to the main page for now.

    New design. Only home page is done. Don't want to copy and paste it to the other pages of the site until it passes some of your critiques, most notably 'Wigs. Just click banner to go to my site. Hope you like it. Valid HTML, and (would be) CSS, except for vendor extensions, for my smiley face

    Thanks

    [edit]Just realized my banner won't show. Here is a link

    your site is dark now, and i think you have taken a step backwards in its look.

    Hey there, I am a freelance web designer and CSS consultant. I'm easy to work with, and extremely knowledgable, so what are you waiting for?
    and this just sounds creepy; like some kind of craigslist "casual encounters" posting.

    I'm going off an article 10 steps to the perfect portfolio site. It says I should have a tagline, and not sound corporate, but sound personal instead. I'll try to make it not so creepy..

    I have heard thoughts about the menu at the top needs to be fixed. Do you guys agree?

    Nice page, but I don't like the main navigator. I'd reverse everything. It works against basic link logic and it feels strange.

    Could you elaborate on this?

    About Me pages, and Contact pages are done. Can anyone critique them, especially my about me page? I couldn't decide whether to type in third, or first person. Also, I changed around the link order. I tried to do it logically. Hope you like it.

    Speak in "who gives a ****" person.

    As your site currently gives a 500 error, I'll comment on what I remember.

    You're being full of yourself. People could care less about your successes, they really are interested in your failures. We forgive perfections and fall in love with flaws. We're odd creatures. Anyone who visits your page will be there for the content, not the author. Just drop the about page, and if you must keep it, state your name, age, and purpose of the site. Nobody, and I will emphasise this, nobody cares you know XHTML 1.0 Strict and can validate without tables. Those who can't don't care on the basis they don't know what to care about, and those who can don't care on the basis they know how easy it is.

    Of course, you'll take this as an attack on you, which it's not. It's an attack on anyone who thinks they are so interesting they need an about page.

    New design, since many said I had taken a step backwards in design.

    Services and Portfolio are not done, so don't bother telling me.. Along with the articles in the Articles section. Feel free to test out everything, including the contact form

    Spell/Grammar check:



    These issues should be corrected ASAP. You don't want customers to see that... looks amateurish..

    That's why QA is important.

    That has been fixed, thank you for bringing it to my attention. I had forgot to fix it until someone emailed me about it

    Does anyone else have any critiques?
