The whole page is made with the help of showkase and simpleviewer.
I think the tools are just awesome if you want to concentrate on content. The layout is fine but like all other tools, you are restricted in what you can do. The nice think is, it produces html files and you can hack in any code you want. So if something does not work from within showkase, you could add it afterwards.
So, if you're thinking about building your own homepage, think about spending some money on showkase and if needed, the pro version of simpleviewer.
