When I started this design I thought it would look really cool and allow me to stand out some but after I was "done" with it I realized it wasn’t that great and I have been trying to come up with a new design maybe something more simplified but still give it some way of standing out. As for the red box around the links this is something that firefox and I think there is a simple CSS thing for it but I havn’t been able to find any way of fixing it.
Thanks for the feedback.
I also think I might have figured out what Google’s problem is with the title tags: they havn’t indexed it since August they just update their site which is weird. I don’t know why they put something saying it was updated even through they haven’t actually gone back and re-indexed my site.
