    just launched it the other day. It seems to be working fine from my end.

    Having trouble with the video though. I do video tutorials on Gimp mostly, and I want to move away from youtube because of there time limits.

    But all of the plugins I find are for flash, and I have .mpeg

    Nice background image, though I’m not a fan of dark websites. You really should have a tag line or something that explains who you are and what you do – the "about me" is hiding, and really, take some time and tell us a little about yourself. What’s there now if laughable.
    Clean up your nav – use consistent capitalization, etc. Don’t put Latest News in ALL CAPS – it’s harder to read. If you want visitors to come back for your video tutorials, you’ve got to come across as professional in your website presence. Nobody’s going to want to listen to a guy who can’t get the little details right. I’d dump the "Visit our Friends!" portion of the footer – it really makes it look like a "off-the-shelf" theme.

    BTW, ubuntu rocks! Still waiting on the next LTS before I upgrade. Cheers!

    Thank you friendofpugs for taking the time to look at the site.

    I too am not a fan of dark themes, in fact I’ve been on the fence about it. I’m working on a custom theme, but needed something out of the box to get it running.

    thanks again.

    Ah that makes sense. I thought that it looked quite "template-y" :)

    Ron, dude!

    Much better! The site is simplified and has a much tighter focus. Good job!
