I went ahead and published what I have compiled right now for a portfolio. I love shadowbox. Especially that it lets me display outside sites in the box.
In any case, there's tons more to come on that page. I just wanted it live for easier editing. I'm still waiting for the Picturegrid update. It'll be perfect when I can call a picturegrid anywhere in my site.
That's it. Small update. Let me know what you think. Given, there are only two examples on that page.
