    its good, but i dont like how you put `cross out` on the links after clicking them makes its harder to read after.

    dont have visited sites crossed out. it gets annoying. have a darker colour change. also you need more information/content.

    why choose you? what are the prices and waiting time? what can i get from you that i cant from others? etc etc

    I was contemplating to have strike-through's in the first place, but for some reason decided to have them. I'll see what I can substitute them with.

    The reason there isn't much content (or information about my services), is becuase this is simply a portfolio. Nothing more, nothing less. And I don't intend to increase the content (other than adding new projects) anytime soon.

    Thanks for the critique

    I agree with both SoD and Dinot - the links are great before you click on them. Afterwards, not so great - perhaps just change the colour shade.

    As regards to your content, I find your site overly bare. I feel that your two colour theme is effective, although not something in everybody's taste. Possibly introducing some colour into the site - by having your miniature screenshots from the portfolio in colour would 'spruce up' the main body of the website.

    Meanwhile, although you may not be targeting 800*600 resolution viewers, I have to scroll to find out a little bit more - possibly reversing the order of the site to have your name and resume link at the top instead?

    On a final note, I feel that you have not presented your resume efficiently. Firstly, you have allowed users to download your resume in .doc format - this is a bad step, as those with a good experience know that Microsoft Word documents can include macro's - potentially putting your computer at risk, which those that do not know could be accidentally put at risk. You are also restricting the viewing capacity of the resume. I feel that exporting your resume to Adobe PDF format (either using Adobe Acrobat, or their free converter at createpdf.adobe.com).

    Hope this has been of help. At the moment I would give your site a rating of around 3 - 4/5

    Something to initialy distinguish hyperlinks from plain text would be good. I also agree, a lighter shade of grey for visited links would be preferable to a strike-through.

    Including your email on the page in plain text/html is a bad idea, it's a real magnet in terms of picking up spam. A graphic, flash or straight forward contact form would be safer.

    Since most users are out of 800*600, I decided to reverse the order of things, to make it a little more interesting .

    About the resume.
    I don't plan on having it as a .doc for long. I'll add a little area (not on that page, but on that domain), and have XHTML, XML, .doc, .pdf and the OpenOffice format catered for.

    I'm not too concerned about spam, as Gmail has the best spam filter since fried eggs.
