Art is a professional journalist running a blog on the Internet that has been bugging me for a very a long time. His professional image as a two-time Emmy Award winning journalist is being marred by his blog that suffers from a rather obvious display bug.
Another Art Harris EXCLUSIVE
The Bald Truth is Art Harris’ blog that was professionally designed and developed just for him.
John H. Gohde to Art Harris: Hello, is anybody home? Isn’t it about time that you finally fixed your blog? How many more years will it take before Art Harris finally figures it out? People have been commenting about this problem on the Bald Truth for a long time. But, so far all these comments have just passed over the head of the clueless Art Harris. 😦
Savvy Internet users surf the Web with FireFox, which is a Mozilla or Netscape based web browser. Intelligent Web surfers have given up using Internet Explorer, a long time ago.
Blue Background Display Bug
The sad truth is that Art Harris’ blog, The Bald Truth, suffers from a rather obvious display bug. The bug is so bad that I absolutely hated visiting his blog the first few times. The Bald Truth is still rather irritating to use. Just as obviously, this display bug has not been corrected by Art. This would leave me to believe that Art Harris must be surfing the Web with the Internet Explorer Web browser.
The blue background display bug affects mostly Netscape or Mozilla based web browsers like Firefox. At best in Firebox, Art’s blog starts out a solid blue that blocks all text from being read except the post title of the most recent post until the webpage is fully loaded. At worst, the entire home page remains an unreadable solid blue.
Even when surfing with DSL, the Art Harris display problem hangs around long enough for me to capture it.
If it wasn’t for the fact that I am sometimes interested in reading the information on Art’s blog, I would not put up with this type of a display problem. Of course, I have been passing lately, since his Bald Truth’s relevance has been going down hill fast. Unknown to Art Harris, a lot of the public visiting quickly give up on the Bald Truth.
Art’s professional web developer used just a plain bad approach to web design and display, in my humble web developer’s opinion.
Web developers are supposed to check their work in about a half dozen different web browsers. But, the professional web developer obviously never bothered. And, why should he? Art Harris is too clueless to spot this type of an error. Let alone make him immediately correct the display problem for free.
