We ask that you please turn on your cell phone and other electronic devices. Take as many pictures as you want during during the performance. Sound recording and taking video is encouraged

 

straightupHow many of you have been to performances where you were admonished to turn off all electronic devices, that recording of any kind was strictly prohibited?

Roberta and Jackie linked up in Omaha for a girls weekend just before Thanksgiving.  As part of the fun, they went to see Straight No Chaser - a ten-man a cappella group that sings covers of pop and Christmas tunes.

 Shelly Kramer's recent blog posting points out what web developers do wrong - "12 Annoying Things About Your Website".

 

Some are pretty obvious, such as having loud background music and pop-up ads.  Some are more subtle, but still true, such as including Flash animation which is not supported on iPhones and iPads, and not having an easy-to-find search box.  

It is worth taking a look at Shelly Kramer's blog to get a general sense of what works and what doesn't.

My web development days go back to 1995, when there was limited Internet bandwidth, and bad design focused on not having that irritating, blinking, text.

I spent ten years hand-crafting web sites with HTML and PERL scripts, with the occasional animated Flash image.  It was a big challenge just get your site to look the same on Microsoft IE vs Firefox.  Technology has advanced quite a bit, and it is unusual for for me to hand-craft a website.
