I'm actually almost done with the redesign project. I just have to get the pages (about, gallery, gear, and projects) finished up. Not exactly sure how I'm going to do it, but I'll get it done.
I've actually done a lot of stuff over the last few days that I hadn't done before - I created a working RSS feed and a working RSS agregator. I've even managed to get one of those lightbox things to work on one of my sites without the aid of a CMS. I'm almost done, though I'm still hesitant to set a launch date. I just got a new job, and I'm not sure when I'll be starting, so I don't know for sure when I'll be able to get a lot of work done.
I've gotten a great deal of functionality implemented in the redesign, and since it's being done from scratch, I can always add more. I'll keep you guys updated as I get closer to launch.
