    *Updated* Well it has been long due for me to create portfolio page. Right now, I invested about 10 hours. Most of them were trying out what works and what not in layout.
    Most images, including logo, have not been done properly as I am creating them as I code the site. However, I would appreciate feedback on layout and if you can think of any improvements please suggest.

    Looks okay, however it feels very cramped. Even in a worst case scenario resolution-wise, you can get away with using up to ~1000px width, and it feels like you've crammed everything into a few hundred pixels. I don't really like the bulky symbols next to the list of your known skills, and I think for a portfolio, you should let your work speak for itself, rather than list the skills you do, or do not have. For many clients, listing them will mean next to nothing.

    did you read what i said above ?

    I know it looks crammed because i haven't yet plaid with content area properly. Bulky icons because they are not mine. freeware icons just while i get to design my own. Once i finished with header, i am gonna work on padding ect in content area. ( Btw, there is still large amount of people using 800x600 and i am not gonna drop support. Instead I will change what needs to be changed to make it look right. )

    You said you wanted feedback and advice on the layout. I gave you mine.

    Also, f*ck people still using 800x600 resolution. Their PCs couldn't handle CSS capable web browsers anyway.

    Don't get me wrong, I was just answering back. But about 10% is still large enough number who use 800x600 and IE6 so I am making it available for them as well.

    I think it looks nice, very clean, besides what you already pointed out

    Looks nice, can be better but this is still good. I just like smaller text though lol.
