  • @llirrem222 , where’s your web stuff, online? Your online resume says you are an actor, no mention of web.

    I checked it out. Do you use a WYSIWYG to design the sites or do you hand code and then tweak with a program, or both? I went to a few of the client sites, a few took a while to load and the code could be cleaned up a bit, maybe with CSS? That’s just my opinion, especially since you’ve put together a convincing video about web design, I had to see if your work matched your video.

  • I use Dreamweaver and hand code.

    Some of the web sites that you see on my site are very old (1999-up) and some are newer. Most of my clients can’t afford 7-10K for a first web site — so many of these were created on very small budgets, and so, shortcuts, and many compromises had to be made.

    Also, many of these were created on strict deadlines, so the quickest method was chosen to meet the deadline.

    Virtually none of my clients is willing to pay for regular updates & code ages quickly.
