This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Well, isn't that nice . My opinion - take the "unemployed" comments out of your recent past listing. If any future employer can't figure out that there are gaps in your employment history - they are too dumb to work for anyway. You think that you rate a 5 in general Java? Well then we hope to see you helping out ALOT more from now on.

I have been helping a lot more. Thats how I won that book last week and I just made RanchHand. Check the forums(particularly the Java Beginning and Intermediate)and you will see me popping up every now and then. I love this place. I have been coming here since I first started learning Java. I have not seen any single site that is more helpful. Thanks for the input, I will change that listing. I appreciate your taking the time to look at my site.

An interesting set of resources, but I do have a few suggestions about your page design. I found the text on the main page hard to read against such a complicated background image. Please consider toning it down a bit or going for a flat colour. Likewise the colour you have chosen for your resume background tends to hide links, which limits its usefulness a bit. If you want potential employers to visit your site, you've got to make it really easy for them. General web site wisdom says that people mostly look at things "above the fold", ie in the section of the page which first appears in their (small) browser window. I'm sure you could fit more of your links into this important area if you got rid of the BR tags between each list item. If you really want people to look at your web resume, make sure it's "above the fold", too! And thanks for your nice comments about the Java Ranch.
Hello all, I have redone the pages on my website and I feel that there have been some major improvements. If anyone has any Java or C/C++ links they would like to see on my site, either post them here or email them to me. My Email Thanks for the input everyone. It has helped tremendously. ------------------ Jason R.

There are several new additions to the Java IDE's portion of my website. If you are curious as to what is out there but don't want to google, then you should go here.
If you have any you would like to see added, just email me.
