    Re: New Site Looks

    I appreciate the ditching of steampunk for cyberpunk

    This gets a thumbs up in my book

    I love it. I especially love the fact that it still works when I increase the font size. I can't tell you how many piss poor, untested sites exist that look great in the default tiny fonts, but when old, semi-blind farts like me crank up the size, the formatting gets blown to hell.

    Congrats! The new site is living proof that all of this esoteric crypto geek stuff can be beautiful at the same time as being fun and informative.

    Re: New Site Looks

    I've decided that the site looks good, but that I have had problems with navigation, and don't see place-holders (yet) for contests, events, and more Defcon16 specific stuff.

    Complaint about navigation is my own problem... when I wake up in the morning, I have my laptop by my bed so I can start my day with fresh updates. That early in the morning, my eye-hand coordination isn't so good, and my ability to keep the mouse running a good horizontal within the 25 or so vertical pixes available in the submenus, when major topics are selects, becomes a problem. It is like <famous drunk driver> trying to navigate Lombard street at 30 MPH while asleep at the wheel.

    Exmaple: I'll hover over archives, and then drag my mouse down to the "bluish band" and then hike to the left side to try to get to //Media Archives, and end up allowing my mouse the stray too high (select another menu topic, causing my selection of "archives" and its submenus to be displaced) or I go too low (and leave the blue band on the bottom side, forcing me to go back to "archives") and try again.

    It feels like a sobriety test, and I'm losing. (heh heh)

    Once I get to work, and am sitting or standing at a computer console, I have no problems "driving between the lines," and I'm still fine in the eve, when I get home.

    Other than my inability to drive my mouse in a straight line in the morning, and not knowing how the contests/events and more defcon16 specific content might look, the site looks pretty good.

    heh, maybe that will rally a few more people to the cause. right now only two other individuals are interested in trying this with me. heh, DT... you feel like going polyphasic with your sleep for a little while? although, i would assume that you are one of the few folk i know who seem to legitimately operate with zero sleep whatsoever, so maybe it wouldn't bring much benefit to you.
    Yeah mate ive read that topic and tried to apply it. Its really good and brains is not going to be too much stressed out. But not really good applying in the office. lol

    Heh-heh. Yeah, I probably should have typed "are you typing about" instead of "are you writing about" ... smartass. :-)

    Ok, your comment was about http://www.defcon.org/ , and looking at it, it does look like it has gone through another major change. I didn't even check it when you commented about it, and made the assumption you were commenting about the last significant change.

    I'm going to have to navigate around with the new site and see how I like it.

    Thanks for noticing this and making a comment. Sorry about not being clear enough with my question.

    Are you writing about the defcon web site?
    http://www.defcon.org/ ?

    (Was discussed in the now archived, no new posts allowed thread here. I don't remember other threads that are still open, which would mean this thread is perfectly fine.)
