Nice portfolios, thank you for sharing. The website I like the most is #2 - Mickael Larcheveque, #1 is also cool, but it loads too slow. For my portfolio I would like to have a grid with images which will expand on mouse over, do you have such an example?

To get what you would like you would probably have to use javascript, to make sure all site visitors can see the portfolio. I have seen an interesting use of AJAX, (if you don't know what it is, it's Javascript+XML), on the homepage of www.creattor.com, where the assets are arranged in a grid thumbnail view, and when you mouse over the thumbs, you see a preview of the file loaded to the portal. You could check it out to see if it is something you were looking for.
Keep in mind that you would need to have a fast server, otherwise your users are going to grow old waiting for the previews to load; you could ask the guys from creattor and see what solution they have - maybe it's a cloud solution, or something similar...
