Formerly: Cyborgx37

A professional software engineer. I currently work for Skuidify building "the #1 User Interface Toolkit for the Salesforce1 Platform".

I have extensive experience in Javascript, HTML, CSS, Apex (for Salesforce), .NET (C#, VB, F#, WPF, ASP.NET MVC, etc.), SAS, SQL (SQL Server, DB2 and Sybase) and Regular Expressions. I've also tinkered with XNA, including teaching a college-level introductory course, and Android applications (written using Java).

My Amazon Wishlist, in case I offer any help that you find exceptionally valuable.

comment Why did Microsoft make Windows 8 hard to Power Off?
What if you want to restart your machine (not just power if off)? Sure, you can turn it completely off, wait several seconds, and turn it back on - but it's much easier to click a button once. Especially since this is a frequent task for any Microsoft Windows user.

comment Best Practices: Location of close button in a modal
If it's not much work and you think it would enhance the site, then I don't see much harm. But if you make heavy use of modals and you have users switching back and forth between OSes (different devices, work and home, etc) then it could be confusing. It seems like a judgment call, but I don't see any inherent problem with it.

Seems like a lot of work. Do you see a benefit? I don't. As long as the button is clearly marked, I think users are used to it being in either position.

comment Best Practices: Location of close button in a modal
True. I'm just going on anecdotal evidence, but most users I've encountered tend to move the cursor toward the right when they are reading a web page, etc. Especially since that's the most common location of the scroll bar. Really, though, it's mostly a toss-up in my opinion.
