Okay, please bear
with me folks. The site is going through some heavy changes, so we'll
be kicking up a little dust here this week.
I've been staring
at my site layout for weeks trying to come up with a solution to the
scrolling problem (which was something a few of my friends were complaining
about). So I produced sketch after sketch of proposed designs for
the home page, and then stared at the screen some more until my eyes
felt numb. After about a week of going over it in my head, I looked
at my pile of sketches and development work, scratched my stubbly
chin, then scrapped them all in place of the design you see here,
which is nothing like any of the earlier designs. Not that anyone
should care, but this is just how so much of the stuff here is created.
It's either the original version of a design or the last-minute, hastily
swapped-in version that goes to final. (Most often the latter) A lot
of the work done in between gets tossed out, but it's still necessary
to go through all of that nonsense to know what you want in the end.
I think there's a real lesson in there somewhere, but I'm not quite
sure what it is.
Now please excuse
me while I go put some kind of pain relief on my horribly sunburned
back and get in a couple of hours of sleep before I go to work later
And hey, feel free
to review the new layout and send in any complaints
or comments. Feedback is always appreciated.
