I'm slowly working on a website for myself because I'm one of those self-centered types who assume everyone has nothing else better to do than to read my rants- just kidding.

I'm making a blog/forums/etc website for myself and another site for my "gaming personality". I'm keeping my gaming site seperate from my "me" site for professional reasons- discussions that are bound to be posted on my darkfall site may be less than savory and I may or may not want any future employers reading them.
I'm also one of those IT types and any potential employers will expect me to have a website- after all I may one day be responsible for their website even though I'm mainly into systems analysis and programming.

I haven't got very far beyond just a basic html and css template and I'm working on the php and sql scripting behind the scenes currently.

Here is ravaughn.com:

I used to play wow alot and I was working on having a blog up for my enhancement shaman discussions.
It looks cool but it was never finished.

Here it is:

I hope you like my designs.

Pink text inside of washed and faded red/orange boxes for your menu is evil. Pick another color from the palate for your text color in those boxes and a text popup box telling you what your hovering over.

Actually, thats like a turquoise gray color (#cfafcf, rolls over to #ffcfff).

I'm not using a palette, I coded that site using textpad. After a while of coding you can just do colors strait from their 32 bit hex codes.

Its unlikely I'll finish that particular site considering I deleted my wow characters and uninstalled the game.

I may reuse the "torn parchment" background/box/container theme- and I went with transparent orange so the backgrounds could be seen through the boxes (when it was to be completed the boxes for the forum posts etc would be covering most of the page). The orangey color was chosen to match the color tint of the background.
There are 3 background images aside from the actual page background in the back. The top image floats on top of the box behind the text and menus. There is another background image that is floating attached to the bottom of the box- as the box is filled with content and grows with height its always at the bottom. Both of those images fade to transparent and the parchment background that tiles the box itself shows through. (So basically a boat load of div tags and css hokus-pokus)

The "me" and the darkfall/gaming site will reuse some html and css but are going to look mostly different. As a matter of fact all of the html and css in that preview of the ravaughn.com site came strait from the ravtehcow site- only the images have changed really.
