They keep getting bigger and bigger

Daily Sucker for May 10, 2002

They keep getting bigger and uglier. This site weighs in at something like 300Kb -- besides being too big, it's hard to imagine what's causing the problem. Well, I looked and the rollovers are way too large -- and ugly, and you can't read them. You're supposed to make the buttons as wide as your longest text -- not squish the text to fit a given size.

The American Brick logo is something like 20Kb -- seriously. I also hate the Microsoft transitions used here. On the plus side, it appears there is some really good information about fireplaces under the FAQs button. Speaking of buttons, doesn't that logo button just suck? Williams Panel Brick.

Classic suck. Actually, I'd rather visit this site than some silly site where you have Mystery Meat Navigation, FlashSplash pages, etc. We've got some poor color choices -- just like the ones I made on my home page. The difference is, which too many of you didn't catch because you didn't read the FAQ , is that I'm poking fun at the technique

We've got an ugly background and the Java menu. I don't know why they use a Java menu. Some text is centered on a page while other text is flush left. While they didn't crop their images so there's no white border, at least they made the images real thumbnails instead of just using large graphics and changing the HEIGHT= and WIDTH= parameters.
