Quick Contest : Find what is new?

We just uploaded a mini release of the Macromedia XML News Aggregator. There are some cool new things in there, but instead of telling you what they are, Christian and I thought it would be fun to have a quick little contest.

So, the first 3 people to post in the comments describing one of the new features / changes to MXNA will win a Flash Timbuktu Messenger bag (these are sweet). Make sure to include a URL pointing to the new feature / change, as well as your email address (so I can contact the winners). Once a feature / change has been posted in the comments it cannot be reused.

Btw, If you were one of the people that Christian and I pinged last night showing off some of the new features, then you are not eligible (sorry).

You can view the Macromedia XML News Aggregator (MXNA) here.

    How about including an option that allows visitors to choose between centered* content, or “left justified” content, or “right justified” content (hmmm, well maybe not the latter, can’t really see the use)…I use a triple head set up (yep, 3 big phat LCDs… sweeeet) and I use Firefox. And I have noticed that no one really considers multi screen set ups, and multi screen set ups with 60 plus pages open as tabs in Firefox… forget it!You wouldn’t believe the number of sites – developers sites mind you – where the paragraph of content becomes one single string of text stretched across 3840 pixels. Or chunks of content appear in different screens either side of a supposedly centered page – macromedia.com :-)Check out markme.com/whoever on dual screens or triple screens. And try the MXNA site or macromedia.com on dual screens (big fat split through the middle of the content).Hey, and don’t get me started on color blindness and usability… that’s another story. Hehehe… had bad experience trying to decipher some information on my ISPs web site today.Obviously as developers we shouldn’t just focus on setting geeky trends with our early adoption of very cool “quadralateral googleplex double humbucking” HD screens, we need to accommadate them in our development strategies.Basically it comes down to this, centering and “left justify” works on a triple sceen set up (centered content is best), and “left justify” on a dual screen.Otherwise forget centering altogether.* In using the term ‘centered’, I mean floating the content in the center of the available browser view space.

  17. Great, but when are you going to upload a new version of your comments system that does not insult people by rejecting their given names as “questionable content”?
