I bought "Prioritizing Web Usability (VOICES)", scanned its table of contents and was immediately dissatisfied with my previous website.
At around the same time I found the 37signals website again, and loved it. I think those guys do a lot of things right.
So I took their site and put my content in it, just temporarely. I changed a few things but I left the basic CSS intact. I'm sure they won't mind since I'm still stealth and I'll change everything again before I go live. It just helps me put the website content in a structure that I like more. I'll deal with the visual redesign later.
