It's getting hot in here

It seems like I've been twiddling my thumbs since my last post. Noooo....

I've been working like crazy and some how updating Jules' wasn't very high on the priority list. I took a long hard look at my scope of work and decided that my personal blog should be what it is - some thing I write for fun and when I have something I say. With no pressure to update. 

Now that I've got that off my chest ... onto the exciting stuff ... the IKEAHackers site makeover. It's a major one, I tell you and I am pretty stoked.

The site has been looking rather blah for a long time now, mainly due to my limited skills. This time round, I engaged the services of a pro and he's been cranking some cool ideas and interesting stuff for me. I can't wait for the big reveal, which I hope will happen some time in June (or early July, I hear him pleading now).

Here's a sneak peek.

There is still lots to do - mainly the categorising and labelling of hacks. Plus lots of rethinking of the hack submission process, search function and community/social aspects of the site. It is major, as I said.

Yup, that's the illustrated "me" on a mission. Hacking is serious business. Yeaah.

While I'm tweaking under the hood, if you have suggestions and ideas, please comment below or drop me a mail. As always, my goal is to make IKEAHackers the best that it can be and I welcome your input.

Don't be a stranger. Comment away now.
