So what do y'all think? :D
I think I like it. I made the background using Gimp - it's a bunch of layers consisting of my annual plan, my new race bike, and a few other things that have been key to me lately. The color scheme is based on the colors of - you guessed it - my new bike. The image at the top is my "checklist" showing what's been done and what's in my sights.
Well, now that I'm done the new layout, I guess I'm less one excuse now, aren't I....perhaps just a few more touches are needed. :D
