In this day and age, it seems as if everyone has a home page of some sort on the Internet. Whether it be on MySpace, Google, or a local ISP, all you really need are some basic programming skills and, presto, you are a Web master. If you are one of the 21st Century phenoms, then pay attention to this Warped site. It may help keep that page around till Y3K.
The name of the site is The Top 10 Ways To Tell If You Have a Sucky Home Page. Now it can be argued that one man’s HTML is another man’s Web site, but who is to say what is good and what is bad? Thanks to this site, you can get some rather basic ideas if your site is heading in the right direction or not.
For example, number 10 says: “Your header is more than 50K. Not all of us have T1 lines installed, ya know! Keep your pictures down to thumbnails until we care to download the whole thing!”
Then there is number 7: “Obnoxious background music. Think about it… If we’re trying to browse from our cubicle at work so our boss doesn’t know, you can bet the instant we hear your lame MIDI interpretation of “Stairway to Heaven,” your page is history.”
These are just a couple of ways to remind you about proper Web site design. The Warp-o-Meter gives this site 7.5, but that is because it actually serves a purpose – watch what you put on your Web pages!
