Secret of success


Happy New Year my two-legged friends and all my four-wheeled ones (especially Beetles). Have you seen the New New Beetle yet? Gives me the creeps. Why? Well the New Beetle seemed a reasonable idea, a retro style (on me) with brand new technology underneath. Ok, so it's a bit of a girlie car but I think it's not bad. But now VW have designed a New New Beetle by moving away, I think, from my original styling. What do you all think.
I am glad to note that some readers have commented on my blog and appear to like it. Some have said it is COOL and how do I do it.
COOL that's a good one. Maybe we should say Aircool, or Coolair. Oh, no that's already been taken.
It's all down to experience and age , my dears. You know I was born in 1969 (YES, cars are born) so that makes me almost 40 years old (Yes, I did that without a calculator!). You learn a lot in 40 years travelling all over the place. Not so much now, alas, I am still stuck at Dave's Grandmother's house. What relationship would she have been to me? Auntie? Dunno, that's too difficult to work out and I am not sure anyone has attempted it before!
You are a dull lot, you know. I keep posing a few questions on the blog and I don't get any answers (I would have expected a few wrong ones at least from you lot). Why is it? Are you all shy? Or just lead too "busy" lives to be bothered with me?
Anyway, another picture of me. WHAT ARE those two things either side of me!!? One thing for certain is I bet they are still not around, like me.
So, OK, questions: Where was the picture taken (not many clues, I know) and what (who) are the other two cars? Yes, I do know the answers.

Well, I´m not sure what they are, but one thing is for sure, they are (or were) ugly.

What were those anyway?

They are (were) Triumph 2000 made by British Leyland. Triumph was a famous independent British car manufacturer. They made a lot of sports cars. Triumph TR2, TR3, TR4 also Triumph Herald. In those days the biggest problem was rust. So those two cars are probably long gone.

Max, out of interest how did you get to the blog?
My tracking software says "no referring link".
How did you search?

If I were to wager a guess at why, I’d say that users don’t “browse” forms. The interaction style users engage in with forms is different, and requires its own study and design best practices. This is a very interesting post, and the comments are also fantastic to read. I’ll have poses to have a little re-think about my own contact form on our new website, as this some interesting questions!
