I know I should be doing coursework, but while doing some research on the BBC's Access 2.0 accessibility blog for my final year embarrassment project, I realised that the alternative high-contrast stylesheets I put together to provide a text-only version of the UPSU.net homepage could be very easily rolled out to all the other pages on UPSU.net with a couple of simple code changes.
(More web geekery...)
I occasionally visit Silktide.com's site score analyser to see how UPSU.net's looking to the rest of the world. Last night I popped on there and had a miniature panic attack when it said "Your website appears to be visited so rarely that there is not accurate
popularity information available - i.e. it is not in the top 10 million
or so websites...", giving us a marketing score of 4.5 out of 10.
(Kind-of off-topic in a pixel-orientated way, not to mention long-winded, rambling and - arguably - pointless ;o).
Checking my bank account today to see if a transfer I'd arranged between a couple of my A&L accounts had cleared, I was more than a little confused to spot no sign of the transfer, and a mysteriously overdrawn third account.
