Interesting Perl Website
I would consider poppin in there once a week if not for .. the junk! Why put buttons to make text larger and smaller?? It's infantile- written by someone who does not understand that content rules- and presentation should stay as far in the control of the end user as possible. That means no funny backgrounds and styles.
Look.. just try this.. Do you have the firefox web developer plugin? go to that site, disable all styles.. Aha.. now.. that's much more useful.
ok ok.. I know I know.. harsh.. but.. look- this is content for coders- not for users. I'll accept the flash junk on the bbc site because it's for general mass consumption- but even these guys are super pro and give a low graphics option that's well crafted. Now that's a site. It doesn't need to do silly stuff because it's got *content*- What other site can we think of like that? Hmm?? ;-)
