I like the look. It is a clean and nice design.

The only thing i can think of off hand is to change the distance between he top image and your name. I am big on spacial balance so i would make the distance between he bottom of the image and the top of your name the same as the distance between the bottom of your name and the red line below it. Like this...

Also the banner image is way too big, I shouldn't have to load your site, and then immediately scroll down to see the work.

I would suggest either using fewer larger thumbnails or adding two more to form a complete grid. Fewer, larger, being preferred.

I think the name location looks fine, but yes the banner needs to drop in size. Its taking up just shy of half the screen, and that's in Chrome (1440x900) which has the tab bar and the URL, that's it. Think of those with chunkier toolbars, thicker window, maybe Yahoo! toolbar adaware and Google toolbars and possibly at a lower resolution.

The nav bar on the resume page is in the wrong position.

From a load time standpoint your current page is WAY TOO LONG!!! the checkers background with the gradient could be a 10 to 20 pixel wide image that replicates across. Instead it looks like it is likely one big background. Also the spacing around the site name is still off. There is way too much space between the image and the name. I would also align the navigation with the screenshots. In other words the "E" in resume should line up with the right side of the right most image. If need be make the images a little larger. In fact I would also move the site name over to be aligned with the e-mail address below it.

I am super picky, obviously, when it comes to alignment and little details. But it will look better in the long run.

As long as everything is still valid, why does anyone care if it's bumped?
Have a question related to modding or something I posted? Something that needs staff attention? I haven't been active lately, but feel free to PM me or message me on Steam(link below)

Do your damn job Gary.

Anyways, the load time is a slight bother for me too, how's the res on the thumbnails? Maybe you could tone them down some.

Though it doesn't look like he'll be updating it anytime soon if he hasn't already...

EDIT: oh wow, those aren't thumbnails at all, its the actual picture shrunk down in all it's longer load time glory. Use less expensive versions of the images for the thumbnails, and have the thumbnail link to the actual higher res image. It'll save on the page's load time.
The inspiration as to why I'm here: Adam Foster; Minerva. Great job man.
