Bitter Grounds - espresso fueled ramblings

Wednesday, August 23, 2017

I've complained about the absolute insanity behind the proliferation of slide shows - why use a couple of pages when dozens would do, right? But this one is the epitomy of stupid design.

 That's right 303 slides. No one will stick around for hundreds of slides when they can go over to a site like Is My Show Cancelled and find the same info in mere seconds. Bad designer, bad.

I've left some content in their old categories. Instead of having readers hit the dreaded 404 Not Found error, I'd rather leave the pages where they lay. Here are the pages:
- Poster Design 2 - breaking out of a rut
- Something a little different - a poster for the site
- Slide show confusion - another candidate for Ring of Hell
- First Ring of Web Hell - the never ending slide show
