    Hi man, really like your site, clean and simple.
    The only think that should change is the background music, take an loop that takes longer that 2 secs. You can find many over here

    I'd agree about the background loop. It does get a little repetitive. Other than that, I think it looks great. Good use of icons and images.

    I did see one little typo in the Work section:

    "...latest tools suck as..."

    Mad at your computer and had a little Freudian slip, perchance?

    Also, it seems like there is an extra space between latest and tools, but that could just be the font. Might need to tighten up the kerning a tiny bit.

    Good job!

    I agree with the previous comments. The loop got old really fast. My site is the same way, so I can't complain too much.
    Nice, clean site overall... I see you stole some elements from the client sites you designed. Good stuff.

    Nice site. Well put together and it flows nicely. What font did you use?

    Perhaps you could put a toggle switch for the music to be turned off and on. Just a thought!

    There is a toggle to turn the music on and off in the lower left hand corner. The font that I used was hooge_54.

    loading.... loading.... loading....

    how do you make your site not one big file, and have the different parts of your site "load" only when someone clicks on that link?

    Liked your site, very well put together. Just one thing I would think about changing is the font type, Im a fanatic disciple of Pixel fonts as they are so much sharper and when you have a passage of text the user doesnt want to strain their eyes reading what is important information. Otherwise, very impressed

    Take a look at this tutorial, it explains it fairly well.
