The Daily Sucker - Current examples of bad web design

The Daily Sucker

Sites featured in articles like Worst Websites of 2010 often are redesigned, which explains why some sites mentioned in my articles don't match their current look. The Daily Sucker features current examples of bad web design which haven't been fixed (yet).

If you see a site that you think sucks, email the URL to me. No personal pages (personal pages are supposed to reflect the individual's personality and artistic freedom) or web site designers (it would look like a conflict of interest), or others of their ilk.

If I think there's some merit to your selection, I may post it along with some commentary. If you know of a site that qualifies, let me know.

An old high school buddy, Terry Schill, came up with a brilliant take about recent Twitter events: “Not bragging, but all of my Tweets are going into the Library of Congress….who would have known?”

Definitely NOT The Daily Sucker.

The best part of the Twitter deal is that everyone can now legitimately tell people, “I’m an author. My works are in the Library of Congress.”

Since it’s my policy not to comment on web designers’ sites, I won’t comment on any of these 10 selections by iMediaConnecion. Let me just say “10 awesome agency websites” is their article title.

I’m getting better

I’m spending a lot of time working with web page speed. I discovered an interesting factoid: if you throw all your HTML, Javascript, CSS and graphic files in the same directory (and modify your files to account for this), your pages will load 20-30% faster. Of course, I wasn’t a math major.

Nice, neat directory structure Threw everything in one directory
2517ms (empty cache) 1864ms (empty cache)
1949ms (primed cache) 1372ms (primed cache)
I used Steve Souders Hammerhead for calculations.
