HadarMetalDesign.com

Friday, August 17th, 2007


Working with our friends at Mogollon we just wrapped up Hadar Metal Design. Mogollon provided the clean industrial design and we did the rest in [valid] HTML 4.01 Strict and CSS.

We made use of JavaScript to perform in-page scrolling, where Flash might have otherwise been used. This keeps the content accessible to all users, and even better, to search engines, err I mean Google. We also tried to keep the markup as semantic as possible to give the site the best chance of being properly indexed with context. It’s probably not as pure as it could have been, we ended up using tables for the scrolling portions so we didn’t have to rely on endless browser hacks. Actually the CSS is relatively hack free.

What ends in a 9?

Everything on this page. Truthfully I’m a little disappointed, but not overly surprised.

Hi Scott,
We need to expend the available space of [deleted] server.

Can you purchase an additional drive and install it?

WTF

Friday, August 3rd, 2007

Frequently we are the recipient of e-mails that are so poorly constructed they are nothing less then offensive. Dan remarked recently that it must have taken more effort to write it incorrectly then to just use real words and write in full sentences. Not only do we suffer the barrage of willful negligence, but sometimes we encounter remarks so bazar that we can only hope it was a joke. Deep down we know that it’s not really a joke, and people treat e-mail like time-delayed IM.

With that said, I’d like to introduce a new series of posts that will highlight some of these shining examples. Each of them will be tagged with wtf and sufficiently conceal the identity of the offending party.

Here we go:
