Revamped this site with John Doe.

I encountered the John Doe theme a while ago and wanted to revamp my online CV with it. I've finally managed to do so today, with some modificationsI added some CSS and JS to animate the home page and to enable anchoring on all IDs, not just the navigation. As much as I'd like to avoid using JS, I've come to understand that it's a necessary evil for better UX.. Now, everything is in a single-page HTML file, less than 3 KB at the moment—isn't that nice? A TXT of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice on Project Gutenberg is just 708 kB, and it loads instantly on any browser. So why should my site be slower than that? And I certainly don't have that many words to say these days. But when I do, I absolutely love the flexibility of hand-written HTML.
