Websites reviewed


In some depth, by Mack Reed of (who didn't get the job to be the site's editor).

The site - almost two years in the making with heavy investment from Gannett and Media News Group looks considerably more pulled-together than it did during its perpetually-in-beta phase ...

A bug or two still mars the mix - the word "null" appears in a restaurant menu pulldown, and delivers this not-too-helpful page - usually the sign of not-too-careful database management. And the stylesheet still hasn't settled down to fewer than five or six colors and two or three styles of link on certain pages.

But those are tiny blemishes on an otherwise well-constructed portal.

Another tiny blemish: the left side of the page still falls off my Mozilla browser and there's no scrollbar to pull it back in.
