comment How to not make my website have a “1990's” look
I consider your comics to be the focal point of your web design, so it'd be a mistake not to at least account for them in trying to fix your "1990's" issues. I've seen your facebook page, so you're obviously doing fine with your comics. I'm just suggesting they would still be improved with a little extra thought put in on typography -- I find your comics to be on par with The Oatmeal if not for your font selection.

There is this concept of "ambient" information being useful -- this is why game designers get freaky about providing unique sound effects to certain items, or sound designers obsess over leitmotifs for animated characters, etc. Providing extra screen space is just another form of supporting (visual) ambience.

Or for an even simpler parallel, watching a television show on one monitor and while using a computer / tablet closer at hand. We do it all the time, without even thinking too hard about it.

comment Is domain name important for user experience?
And likewise, I have lastres0rt.com -- I'd made the call that the 0 was better than a few extra letters or a dash, but it's always been tricky to say "lastresort.com, with a 0 in the 'o' for resort" or "lastres-zero-rt.com"... On the other hand, at least it's a distinguishing mark from all the other "Last Resort"s out there!

comment When should a year be added to a timestamp?
Nine months is enough time to have a baby, and it should be enough time to get a clue.

Is that enough of a reason to avoid using "non-simple" words, though? I would think non-native speakers gain literacy before fluency, anyway, so TYPING may not be the issue they have with certain words. Besides, "delicious" is actually a poor example, as its Latin roots mean it's seen in multiple languages (so it's more familiar than other foreign words)!

comment How to showcase UX work?
Worth note that this only says HOW to display it, and not so much WHAT to display. Deliverables are important, process is important, and some 'less enlightened' souls won't even think you're a real UX'er unless you have at least one set of wireframes included in there. Of course, what to display is a much bigger question...

comment What are the best practices on religious holidays?
It's more of a "depends on the business" type of knowledge -- For instance, a retail company dealing with Judaica shops inside synagogues, or a marketing firm that deals with Halal butchers, is very likely NOT dealing with Christian customers.

Are we assuming you don't have some level of (assumed / tailored) knowledge about your customers' religion?
