2014/04/23: I develop Emergency Medical Services (EMS) software for Sansio/Physio to enable EMS personnel to track patient encounter data in the field and notify hospitals of incoming patients in real time.

I'm also launching Great Pixel Hunt as a side project. This is an online sweepstakes where businesses pay to reach local users and local users/charities win the majority of those profits.

2011/09/28: Working at my 2nd software-development job full time and working on my 1st web-site and spending time with my wife an baby girl in my free time. I look forward to the day where my "full time" becomes my "free time".

comment How to show the user the possibility to sort a column with space problems
@unor: Thanks for the response. Adding hover text over each arrow (like SE does), keeping the current sort arrow highlighted, and the fact that the column under the highlighted sort arrow is sorted correspondingly should help clue users in to what this does. If that fails, as long as users are not afraid to experiment they will soon understand the functionality.

comment Can higher speeds harm the user experience?
@KeithS: Precisely, so I'm curious to hear the side of those who down-voted. Could it be they don't like Pacman or (shudder) Superman?!!?? No No, of course not, that's crazy-talk! There's got to be some other reasonable explanation that I'm missing... ;)

comment Why do Microwave oven UIs fail?
@BryanOakley: That's true, although I'm not sure about it taking up the same amount of space since you'd still need the ability to select which cooking mode you are using. Maybe instead of a single "Start" button you could put your "Cook By" "Time"/"Desired Temp" buttons there.

comment Why do Microwave oven UIs fail?
@derobert: Did the microwave shut off when it got to the temperature you wanted to cook your food to? If so: SWEET, I want it!

comment Why are progress bars horizontal?
Here's a challenge from Ben Brocka's linked article: Implement the "Pormpuraawan Progress Bar", where progress goes from East to West :)

comment Why put the controls in the bottom (or the top) of a music player UI?
@yusf: I don't have an Android device, but I did search for "Android music player" on Google images, and through at least the first 50 images, every result that had play/ff/rew buttons had them below the viewing area, so I apologize but I'm not sure what you are referencing.

comment Is this rotating cube interface user-friendly?
@Peter: Does this work on mobile devices? Real-estate is so valuable there and this saves so much space, I can just think of one word for your design: money. While we are on that note, you could save even more space and show any number of sides if you swapped them out randomly when the sides are hidden!
