.net v3.0 is live

As always, a day or two late is the norm.

For those of you using a feed reader, you might want to at least click on through to see the newest version of my site.

It’s late and I don’t feel like detailing a bunch of things but here just a couple of highlights:

  • Almost monochromatic color scheme with just a couple of touches of blue (#033) here and there.
  • Left-aligned with fixed position sidebars on both the left and right of the content. More to come on the right side down the road.
  • A wider content area so you will see some goofiness in older looking images/videos but new content will be adjusted accordingly
  • Font replacement for headings, titles and main navigation through Cufon. You’ll probably noticed a slight delay/change from time to time as it gets replaced. It isn’t the perfect solution but until the much awaited Typekit drops, it’s the best option.

I haven’t even thought about validating or punishing it yet, so be kind. I’ve done some browser testing: FF3/Safari 3 on Mac and IE6/7/8 & FF3 on the PC but make no guarantees that it displays perfectly on your end. IE6 users, I didn’t drop you completely as some do but I also didn’t take full care of you either. You’re going to see some funky blue rings around several places and that’s just your browser doesn’t handle transparent images. There are fixes (and I might implement) but I’m too worn down tonight. As always, you’d be better served to upgrade your browser and browsing habits.

If you see some wackiness, feel free to comment below and embarrass me in front of my friends/family or save my ego by shooting me a note.

Up next, a revamped portfolio and some links to some fresh work.

Here’s to hoping the relaunch spurs a little creativity in writing as well. Daddy needs a new pair of shoes.

    Looks nice and very different. LIke the embossing effect on the logo, and the shine in the background! Good work!
