I don't feel like the info I put in the sidebar is sufficient to convey everything about this layout. One thing I have to say is that I think it turned out pretty well. It's my first time incorporating scanlines and grids into my work and I think it looks pretty nice. Let me just complain how annoying it is to chop up an image into little pieces. I know it's good practice, so that the image will not seem like it's loading forever, but it's really, really annoying. Oh well... I'll have to live with it.

This layout is more of a traditional weblog layout. After making Version 1, I realized that maybe I should stick with some traditional layouts in the future. This is the first one of those. Expect to see more layouts featuring tables instead of frames. Actually, expect next to none featuring frames if any at all.

The only major gripe I have about this layout is the transition between the background image and the main header image. It looks really rough. I guess I got a bit too overboard with the gridlines. But they're so cool...

So yah... give me feedback.
