Done it myself. Nothing special though just a bunch of floated divs populated using AJAX.

I once did my own internal site at work using basic jquery in about 30mins. it wasn't responsive but that could be easily added.

For a personal website, this might be tolerable.  But commercially, no.  You can't make a first impression by forcing your users to mouse over and/or click everything.  You have roughly 3-5 seconds to capture your audience's attention.  Just how do you do that on a site that is roughly 50% blank and 50% requiring you to click in order to present any real information?

Thanks, had trouble finding it but now I remember again that it was on dA, some place I've not been online lately with people still waiting to see some of my work updated...
