You may notice that my web site has some new digs. Something that is probably obvious to you, is that I am not completely done with the home page, but the improvements that the theme brings to the table are too valuable not to launch it just a bit early.

One of the biggest complaints I’ve had since launching cdevroe.com was that there was no clear navigation between the main areas of the site. I was one of the complainers myself.

On Friday I decided to take a trip to Panera Bread to soak up some free wifi and some grub. I did this to get a slight change of scenery, and to focus on finishing what was the core of this redesign. The changes you see may not seem very extensive, but most of the changes will end up going rather unnoticed until I actually unleash each and every feature of this theme. Its current incarnation is not quite as robust as its final one will be, which will be released incrementally.

Panera’s atmosphere is actually fairly conducive to GTD. So I was able to pump out a fairly good portion of work in the amount of time it took my wife to do some shopping.

Credit for the small, yet fantastic, adjustments to the theme go to James Mathias who sacrificed some of his weekend for me. It is definitely nice to have friend that is willing to give you some of their well earned time off. Thanks a lot James – I owe you one.
