    Haha @David_Leitch!

    I remember the website having a yellow background, blue text and a list of my favourite hobbies, the font was styled with Comic Sans everywhere!

    Plus all of my CSS was inline :/

    @Htmlmainiac, the video in your “My Room” page is oversized for the container, you may want to look into that too.

    hello benjamin!
    I think the type logo is yelling and drawing unnecessary attention saying “Look I can gradient “. The overall tone of your portfolio is missing. The type is misused. I think so, sorry if i was kind of rude!

    Thanks everyone for the comments

    I’ll probably add GZiping and expires header with .htacsess.

    Maybe the border is a bit big i might make it smaller.

    Yes ill add a photo gallery and post some pics on it.

    Maybe I’ll add a portfolio page.

    I’m not exactly finished with it so i appreciate the feedback!

    @ChrisP I think i did add

    width: 100%;
    height: auto !important;

    but what browser are you using please because i do pan on adding a message saying that pre IE8 is not suported.

    @David_Leitch i use that font for headers because it is websafe.

    # December 13, 2012 at 11:53 am

    @matt44903 My dad allowed me to do that so i think he thinks its safe(ish)

    @frijolito56 Thanks for the comment it was very useful!
    I’ll probably use Google Font API but im not shure about it becouse i think it uses @font-face for the fonts.

    @Watson90 I have made 9 websites before this one and my first used tables to set it out but I’ve done it again and it much better.

    Here are some of my other websites:
    [Gwefan Bochdewi](http://bochdewi.co.uk) (In Welsh)
    [FlyffyWeb.net](http://bochdewi.co.uk/flyffyweb/) (Still working on it)
    [HTML-Mainia](http://bochdewi.co.uk/htmlmainia/) (Just instaled wordpress on it and it will be a bit like CSS-Tricks)

    @Htmlmainiac, I’m on Chrome, and for some reason, the video controls appear on the sidebar at first, then goes over to your main content area after the video finishes loading..And if the video is shot in portrait, then it’s working fine. I thought it was not filling the container because it was shot landscape.

    On Firefox, on initial load the video window was extremely wide, and caused horizontal scrolling until the video completed loading, then it went into the container, and doesn’t seem to do that again on page reload.

    I got a screenshot of Chrome for you to look at what I’m seeing [here](http://s10.postimage.org/y1g7yi3yx/screenshot.png “”) I’m baffled as to why it’s behaving like that for me.

    Thanks to everyone for the nice starting early comments!

    I learnt everything from a book called [HTML, XHTML and CSS All In One For Dummies](http://www.dummies.com/store/product/HTML-XHTML-and-CSS-All-In-One-For-Dummies-2nd-Edition.productCd-0470537558.html)

    Yeah, I got something like that too…although the video still does not fit inside the container.

    Chrome is fine although the video is not centered in the container…but that’s minor.
