next thing's next

Christ, I am so fried. I've been staring some iteration of this (or its innards) for the past three hours:
 


It's nothing fancy, I know, but that's how I want it. Just a simple, clean creative portfolio site where I can show off the MANY MANY HIGHLY MARKETABLE SKILLS I have (lolsob).  It doesn't seem like much, but I had to take a machete to the closest template I had, layout-wise, from Rainy Day.  And even then, ugh - I've gotten rusty. Forgotten so much CSS. I really wanted the sidebar links to be in hover-over bars, but I couldn't figure out how to do it.

I used to know, I think. I must have.

But it's ok. I think this is ok. I made the sidebar fixed, which I really like. When the wall-o-text on that welcome page scrolls up and the basic info stays on the side, I think it looks rully pruffess'null 'n stuff. I think I'm saying I think a lot.

Mucking around with the CSS got me all wistful about designing templates again. I'd love to re-do the shop with all new, very clean and simple designs.

Speaking of - if ANYONE, anyone at all has any outstanding, lingering issues from Rainy Day - technical, financial, whatever - please email me - elliequent {at} me {dot} com. As far as I know, all of those loose ends have been tied up, but it's been a fucking nightmare of a year, and I wouldn't be surprised if I've dropped a ball or two dozen.
