    Ive got a little more complete, any more adjustments you guys can think of?
    Move the text on the login button up a bit and maybe make the drop shadows more subtle.

    Would anyone happen to have the famfamfam silk icon pack? Their website seems to be down.

    Woops, nevermind. I found it in one of my old project folders.

    How do you guys figure out colors to use with gradients and stuff? I think that my programmer designs could look better if they would consist of more than #eee and #ccc.

    You can use the color swatch in programs such as Paint.Net, online color swatches, or the basic thought of #RRGGBB.

    Anyway, I redid my portfolio because I felt it didn't present the information people wanted straight up. I took a leaf out of a couple of people's books so if you feel your (current) site is being infringed on in some way, tell me. I did, however, code everything myself.
    Nice. However, as I've said before, I realize that being 16 and knowing how to build websites is a cool thing but it's a bit unnecessary. 4 years ago I would have put that on my portfolio too. Now though, I realize that it's better when you don't state your age as a lot of people use that as an immediate dismissal. When looking for programmers to help me out on stuff, I've specifically ignored those who said they were "15...or 16" years old. If you're under 18 I'd highly suggest not putting an age on your portfolio and even after that it makes it a bit cheesy. It's better for someone to go, "wow nice work." And then finding out later that you're 16 years old, that will blow their mind that much more.

    That said, I kind of doubt you'll get any people from your portfolio who really are serious about hiring you (although you do have like the best name a web designer could ask for...Elliot Speck just sounds sweet with a tinge of tech).

    What kind of direction were you hoping for your portfolio site? A landing page? Just a short info blip? If you really want to make money off of your web developer skills (which you clearly have), just make a blog with lots of "25 best photoshop brushes" type articles. Trust me, that stuff gets traffic like nobody's business and it's all really just copypasta. Write a good article every week and you could be pulling in $500/month in ad revenue on top of getting lots of people to your portfolio/blog. Eventually, you'll get some people with genuine interest and maybe even get a job out of it. I was hired right after I turned 17 after posting some stuff on craigslist. You don't have to have a college degree to get a good web design job.

    Can you change the font in Sublime Text? I tried googling, haven't found anything, and the program isn't very helpful with having a proper settings menu...

    It's actually really easy to do.

    Just go to Preferences > Default File Preferences

    It'll open a file in sublime. On line 11 you just change the string to the font name you want to use.

    I don't like the buttons. They look too plain and there are too many colors

    Edited:

    The general color set looks also weird, it feels like a negative photo

    Nope. The width of the site being 800px doesn't take into account the browser chrome, and scrollbar; you'd need to make it about 760px to make it fit comfortably on an 800 * 600 resolution.

    It's not really worth it.

    40px doesn't make much difference
    20px spacing of on either side does make quite a difference; you want a comp to fit comfortably on a screen, not pressed up against the edges of the screen.

    looks fine except for the caption under the logo. Something there doesn't look right.
    I think the words web and graphic are supposed to be emphasized with lighter colouring, but because of the wording, our eyes just see an alternating pattern (which looks a bit odd).

    The thing with 960 is that it's divisible by almost everything.

    Started on a design for a project hosting site I've been thinking of making as a learning experience and for personal use.
    Took me about an hour, hoping to have the design of the site finished by the weekend and add the functionality and scripting.. Whenever time permits

    Edited:

    Take the noise off of the buttons on the left of the screen, it makes them look transparent and cheesy. The rest of the site looks gorgeous, good job.

    It's actually really hard to think of a name for a IRC type chat thing. You could always pick an unrelated common word which would probably be a good idea to prevent easy pirating.

    Editing my ip logger for vbulletin and was wondering if someone can help me with some sql. I currently have a table with

    `userid` INT NOT NULL ,
    `ipaddress` CHAR( 15 ) CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_bin NOT NULL ,
    `lastlogin` INT UNSIGNED NOT NULL

    Now I want to display the userids with the most ips. Is there anyway to do it with that table alone or should I add another table that contains userid as a unique field and a counter?
