    Since the font is corrected (much better now, thanks!), I'd like to point out that the massive purple banner on top of the site leaves an uncomfortable small space to read on a laptop with 1366x768 display resolution. On my Android tablet, though, the banner scrolls up with the rest of the page. Anyway, leaving more than a third of the screen for a banner that stays there all the time is not ideal, I think, for the user experience. Just a suggestion, mind you. Oh, and thanks again for the article.
    Salut!,

    Others have mentioned it and they are checking in on changing the header

    LOL, William, now we just can't stop.

    Coincidentally, shortly before I saw this I had already shared an interesting tidbit. It feels good.

    Yep! I very much appreciate the tips, insights and direct help I've received both from William and from this group over the years. I would gladly share any tips or tricks I've come up with on my own—as soon as there are any. Compared to most of you goons on here I am still so very much a LW n00b, even after all this time.

    I think the spirit of the article isn't about getting something from sharing your knowledge but more along the line of thinking where you will be happy in a job. Most artists love making art.. If they don't think about where they want to be, they will find them selves moving up the management ladder and doing everything but the art...

    Yeah, this resonates. When you cast your proverbial bread upon the equally-proverbial waters, if you're doing so while monitoring your ROI I respectfully submit you're doing it wrong.
