Inspired by version 5, I went out and took pictures of the woods around my house for this layout.
I recoded my entire domain in PHP for this version, to help move with the times and use divs instead of iframes. (Plus, a dear Internet friend showed me how to do PHP includes and I fell in love with their convenience.)
This layout was intended to change the domain over from a hobby site to a graduate school portfolio.
There was a previous version 8 I designed with a very different feel, but this is the one I ended up using.
I actually uploaded this design while I was hanging out at the gaming shop in my hometown, borrowing the shop's fast Internet because I still had nothing but dialup at home. #rurallivingproblems
