I actually agree with Tyme .. and added a bit more space for now.  Who
knows, I might change my mind again and remove it altogether tomorrow.  :)

Ok, points taken about the resume page.  I'll move that elsewhere, make it
less prominent.  Might just be a link from the front page and Services page.
My last few jobs have come from agencies, and they've wanted a resume.  I'd
like to keep it available somewhere, but will not have it as a main link on
the top nav.

This is a tough one .. and I need to think about it some more.  It's not
just a Portfolio, in the traditional sense.  It really is Project
Descriptions ... but I see validity in using common terminology.  I would
like to keep it to one word.  If I change it to Portfolio, does it make
sense to still have the other project descriptions there, that aren't web?
One of the reasons I dislike the term Portfolio, is that my first impression
is *design* work.

Any other ideas?

Thanks for the kind words!!  :)
