You may notice that the site looks a little different, and if you dig a little deeper you might notice that some superfluous things are gone and a few others have been changed around.
I did this for a couple reasons, one being that I got the itch to change things up a bit when I updated some behind-the-scenes stuff a week or so ago. The other is that if you visited my site on an Apple product like an iphone or ipad then you couldn't see the navigation at the top of the page since it was Flash driven. I've known about that for quite some time, but I didn't really want to give in and change it until I had a new idea for my site banner.
I understand that all technology must evolve over time and that some stuff will become obsolete, but I still think that it's quite arrogant of Apple to cut off Flash support so soon. In my opinion it alienates the many people who have used it to develop web content, especially the creative people Apple seems to care so much about. I understand moving on to something new, but I just fail to see exactly what it is we're gaining by making sure that nobody can ever see or use anything that was created in Flash. I mean we've moved on to DVDs and Bluray, but nobody took that to mean that we should burn all VCRs.
But that's just my two cents on the matter. I feel like the changes I've made are for the better, and I'll probably still be tweaking things here and there for a while.
