Design Sojourn V3.0 is up and running!

It’s done! After 3 weeks of working with Aen Direct, we have finally got the Design Sojourn v3.0 up and running! But…

It’s still a little buggy and I’m trying to sort out which part is working and which is not while poor Aen actually sleeps for a change. Ah life as a design consultant.
Anyways currently there is a lot of reformatting to be done so please don’t mind the over-runs. There will also be a lot of theme swapping back and forth, as I troubleshoot, so it may not look like anything has changed. My advice is to just hit the refresh button and perhaps it would have been fixed.
Problems and my to-do list:
1) The Archives and Links pages don’t work. (Update: Fixed!)
2) I have page spill over and its killing the formatting in the footer. (Update: Fixed!)
3) My categories “runneth over” (Update: Fixed!)
4) Sidebar graphics are all over the place. (Fixed!)
5) Sidebar content needs re-organization. (Fixed!)
6) Flickr link dead. (Update: Fixed!)
7) Background graphics need tweaking.
8) Images borders. (Fixed!)
9) Adding a portfolio section. (Done)
Also dear reader please “click” around my new layout and do post your likes/dislikes and also any bugs that you may have found?
Oh if you need some web redesign do give Aen a call, hopefully he would be awake!
Thanks and appreciate it!

    Looks great. Colours are nice and the grid works really well. Smaller icons–type–everything! Nice work.
