The first person that can convince me why the scrolling widget at the bottom of this page is a good things gets a bottle of Blanton's courtesy of OrangeCoat.

I might have guessed Nobrainer would jump on that first. I'll definitely buy a round next time you're in tiger town. Any chance of a trip for a basketball game this year?

nobrainer ~ January 26, 2006

Basketball game? The odds are between about zero and none.

Though if everything else is going well for me, I'll probably be heading down there semi-regularly starting in late March.

Not a basketball guy. I didn't know. The law of Conservation of Sports Fandom I suppose. NASCAR supplanted Basketball in your case?

Actually I'd love to make it down for a game. But with the way the remaining schedule works out, it just isn't feasible.

In our increasingly fast-paced world, the handy scrolling widget kept me from leaving the web page when I thought that the connection with the server had stalled and the entire endeavor was a waste of my time. Buoyed by a scrolling message of hope, I redoubled my patient resolve and stayed on the site, eventually experiencing a wonder of usability and efficient use of screen space.

It's not as fun as spinning until I pass out, but it's a whole lot faster.

It did manage to give my 1/2 second attention span something to look at while the remainder of the page loaded. I would call that a good thing.

If the scrolling widget nets me a bottle of Blanton's then I will go so far as to call it a great thing!

Y'all a far way from convincing me though nobrainer's is the best answer so far and for that he gets nothing. ~ January 28, 2006

The web designer downed a bottle of Blanton’s while working on the site :)
