    Hey guys,

    Well it's been quite a busy month, first I get married, then we go to maui for our honeymoon for a week, and now I released my long awaited (well, I've been waiting at least) redesign to my blog/portfolio site.

    My last redesign sucked, so I went back to the drawing board and came up with something I think I can be proud of. It's a lot cleaner, easier to read, and has a few new ajax bells and whistles as well as a vastly improved and organized archives section.

    http://christopher-scott.org

    Two things:

    The about page is totally empy right now.
    The portfolio page is currently under development.

    Thanks for everything,
    Slyder

    Finally, a website I can read (with my old eyes).

    Looks like it might rate high on accessibility.

    I certainly don't mind the "plain" look.
    Your site is really about the content.

    Congrats on the wedding!

    My only gripe about the size is the massive headings.

    Simplistic, elegant, and very large headings. The last part isn't even much of a problem...in fact, it sometimes helps. Very nice!!!

    Like Chris says though ... the content font size is nice, but the headers
    should be only slightly larger than your main font size (right now, it's
    a bit larger than needed). I guess the idea would be to emphasize the
    following paragraph.

    Keep the background white though and simple, and lots of white space.
