ADMIN: filtering certain attachment types

Hi everyone,

With the great help of Michael Bartlett I've configured both the Discuss@
and Workgroup@ lists so that only a specific type of attachments can get
through. If an attachment doesn't match a specific mime type it will not be
allowed onto the list.

image, office apps, pdf, flash are still allowed through.

PIF, ZIP, and EXE are NOT allowed through (e.g.)

For the most part people shouldn't be sending attachments at all through
this list of any type ... but there might be cases where it is necessary and
I don't want to eliminate it at all.

IxDA Designers in Tennessee?

Are there any IA/IX/UX Designers on this list located in Tennessee? Preferably the Nashville area, but not necessary. I wanted to sit down with an actual designer to get face to face insight into this profession. My treat, you pick the restaurant.

Where to place testimonials

Does anyone have any input on the following?

We're looking at adding in testimonials to a website for a client who provides building services. We were thinking of either putting them alongside the projects in his portfolio, on a "testimonials" page, or both.

Does anyone have any data on how effective either or all of these are together or alone? More importantly, has anyone seen any research that says whether people look at a testimonials page or prefer them inline or look for a separate page?

Interesting widget - WAS: argument for designing 1024px wide

Here is an interesting way of designing for screen size.

Look in the top right corner of this site to see the equivalent of a font
sizer for screen size.

Has anybody seen this before? I haven't. Other than the fact that I don't
think it's very noticeable, it's an interesting compromise between designing
a completely flexible layout and having to stick to the lowest common
denominator (i.e. 1024).

Interaction design and propaganda

I am periodic lurker on this list, but I thought this might prompt
some interesting discussion.

I just wrote a post on my blog
about an interactive Flash map created by the Sri Lanka Ministry of
Defence (http://www.defence.lk/orbat/Default.asp).

Interaction Design at Cooper U


Is anyone here to help me know if Cooper U's Interaction Design Course really holds good value in the UX market? What's your recommendation and opinion about the faculty and is it worth the cost $2,150?
