Been paid for developing for 15 years, in addition to the assembly, Basic, and DB III I learned for the fun of it. Most of my professional carreer has been spent developing server systems and web applications.

Some things I have come to believe are:

  • Simplicity is hard, but oh so necessary
  • The hardest problem is understanding
  • Users are great, they keep you humble

I've seen a couple dialog boxes that have a [Reset] button that at least gets you to some defaults if you royally mess things up.

comment How to make it obvious when filtering by time
What's wrong with having the time slice end at the "Present"? That is a reasonable expectation that the user will have. In short, the end time of the time slice is always evaluated for the current request. Any time pickers that don't allow you to pick "Present", "Current", "Now" or whatever you want to call it is where you need to fix the UI.

comment Should I use a banner-like or logo-like header in this website I'm designing? (based on aestetics and ui-design principles)
Understood; however, my point had to do with finding that balance. Taking the bannerless option removes all the fun he wants to convey. As is, it is too busy.
