looks really good
Authored by: seamusmh on Feb 09, '03 11:37:37PM
the usability on the new design is way better. upgrading a site can be such a huge overwhelming task and it really seems much tighter than the current design. less blocky, less blue. GREAT JOB a few thoughts:
  1. the left sidebar could be a touch narrower, it seems like it's creeping up on the main content a little bit. or maybe the text could be a pixel smaller, just to keep user focus in one place.
  2. exploit css more. maybe it's a personal preference, but i'd like to see more geek sites incorporating higher level css for quick page loads and better design w/o graphics.
  3. DON'T code your own site by hand. off-the-shelf php/mysql blogging/portal software is the future and a very good path. you get extensively tested code, lots of room for customizing and a team of people squishing bugs so you can focus on content. i learned this the hard way and have since chosen pMachine (written on os x, btw) as the software for my site.
  4. keep it up!
