I did this a while back and forgot to post it here. I hate to start out by saying it's not perfect, but... it's not. This was a major stretch for me and one of the only themes I've ever completed.
Still, I am very proud to accomplish something like this.
Thanks to Justin for the theme and constant support. Thanks to those others who have helped with code as well.
Big Image - I feel like I got on this bandwagon before it started showing up on every other theme. Oh well.
Menu images on right side - I'm not sure I would do this again, but I like the site being different. Analytics says people are still able to get around easily.
Fireworks Header / Footer images with links - what a pain to figure out. There was no help on the web and I just kept trying and making lots of mistakes. Finally works.
Lots of other little stuff like the repeating background image. These don't seem like big things now, but learning gradients in Fireworks was a new thing.
Although I'm not going to make any major changes, feedback is welcome. Also, the author is a close friend and his book is excellent (life-changing).
