That site has only been up a week and I already got an email:

My name is Robin, and I can design professional looking website for you at $150 only. We also offer dynamic websites, and e-commerce solutions at affordable prices.

What are they getting at? Is my site not professional-looking? Crikey, it's only one page! And that is by design.

Haha, well one possibility would be that while their first name could well be Robin, their last name could be Bot.

Ohhh, what a groaner!  Had I realized I'd set that one up...

Good one, though!   smiley-grin

I also have to wonder about their definition of "professional-looking".  They probably mean some gaudy, busy, impossible to use thing with dozens of ads, crap flashing all over, popups etc. etc.  I much prefer your design.  Things are really getting out of hand these days.  IMHO.

"Professional-looking" is code for "impossible to use".

I know the sort of site they mean. Full of Flash widgets and little boxes that pop up as you mouse-over them. The page takes a minute or two to load, and fails on 3 out of 5 browsers because they only test it on one.

Exactly!  I hope this means that it's not just me.

Actually, I think minimalism is in again, unless its out again and I didn't get the memo.


And any developer that still uses flash should be shot.
