Site changes

Well, I'm back at Cornell.

But that's not the point of this post. The point is, I ifnally made some changes to this website that I have been working on for a long time. The changes are subtle, but signficant. I'll point out the changes here.

The biggest change is that this top page no longer directly links to the sites hosted here. Software Creations is still listed here since it is active, and the rest of the sites are accessible by clicking on "Leedberg.com Sites". The reason for this? Many of the sites are inactive. Also, I'm a 23 year old graduate student and, yes, I'm embarrassed that when people went to my homepage on the web, some of the first things they'd see were links to Mortal Kombat and Mad Magazine websites. These websites no longer reflect my interests, but were given disproportionately large screenspace on my website. These sites will stay online for the foreseeable future though, because many people still visit them as a resource of information.

Other changes? I now have a profile of myself online, and a link to my resume. There is now a whole site devoted to my computers. This site gives specs on my computers, history of each component, and even a blog where I can give commentary on upgrades as they happen. This stuff interests me a lot, so hopefully someone else out there will find it interesting too :) There's also now a page devoted to the history of Leedberg.com. This website is now 10 years old, and I had a lot of fun writing up this history document. I also added buttons to the front page for Firefox and Thunderbird, added a link to each blog post to the permanent URL for that post (in case you want to bookmark a specific post), removed the "The site, blog, and life of Greg Leedberg" tagline, and shortened the welcome text.

So, lots of changes, but nothing that hits you over the head. Originally I was going to redesign this page completely, but decided against it. I'm also considering changing the focus of this blog. Right now it is basically a journal blog. But, nothing too interesting happens in my life :) So, I might make it more of an editorial site where I can just write about whatever is going on in the world -- new editorial, movie reviews, and just a little bit of a journal on my life. I don't know for sure yet.

Anyways, check out the new sections of the site and leave some feedback in the message board!
