Post Site Redesign again...
So I redesigned the site... again. The more I looked at last year's redesign, the less I liked it as I feel I wasn't folloiwng my usual KISS principle on website design. Thus a simpler design and a simpler code execution that I took inspiration from a favorite webcomic's site, Earthsong.

Anyway, so what's been up with me, quite a few things actually. I'm still teaching, but in July my fiance moved in with me and in August we got a two-bedroom apartment together. So far so good on that end.

Also I participated in a manga/comic contest this year put on by Drowtales, and not only did I actually complete my entry, I won third place with it! Here's the full entry, and you can also view it with commentary in the Other Comics section:

Other than that I am trying to get my own comic going, so stay tuned for character sketches and whatnot as I work out some kinks in my art and the story... Later! :upsidedown:

Post Re: Site Redesign again...
I was going to do the redesign of the site in D7 based on the fact that, IMO, D7 has made some great leaps and bounds with it’s administrative user interface and module support. Then a little voice in my head convinced me to take EE2 for a spin and so I bought a Freelancer license. To make the rest of this story short, I am now more than happy I made that decision. EE2 has really been a breath of development fresh air for me and I thank God that I am using it again. I had forgotten how easy soooooooo many things are to theme and build with this great CMS.
Is it better than D7? I won’t get into that (perhaps volatile) argument lol but I will say that it makes some things easier where theming and module integration are concerned and I think it gives you more control over your site than Drupal does (with drupal you have to often customize too much to have the control you might want). Please note that I still do use D7 (not D6 or below) for a few sites because as I said it has really improved it’s admin user interface and experience over previous versions.
