Im off (Again)

Well,

I came back to plusnet after a few months away, just been upgraded to Maxdsl as well.

Well Im off due to slow support, long delays on the phones and my speeds up and down like a rabbits a$$ on drugs.

Received my MAC and Im off to http://www.evolutiondsl.net

Have requested to move my account to a Pay As You Go so that I can keep my emails active (If they allow that).

Anyway, have fun guys and see ya around.

Am I missing something, or do they not have a contact number? (and I wish someone would tell them why flash and frames are not a good choice for an alledged professional ISP).

Frames are not a part of the original HTML specifications and so tend to be frowned upon by HTML purists. Also frames tend make search engine indexing harder and if you do enter via a search engine you may not get all the frames etc and so miss part of the menu - though abit of inteligent use of Javascript to redo the frameset if its not present can get rid of that problem.

Flash (personally) I don't like on websites unless if offers something that can't be done in HTML/dynamic html. Again flash content provided indexing problems.

I've nothing against frames in general - but when they only appear to have been used to seperate a flash object, then it's a tad stupid and unnecessary (thats what tables are for dammit!).

They got a nice business package, thanks for the heads up Wink

Steven, I owe you an appology... I misread your post about frames/flash as being why aren't they a good idea rather than you agreeing with me that they can be flawed Wink

Doh!

Tables ? No way man - straight out of the 90s - you want to use a css to format your divs !

Or better still use XML, XSD and a xml stylesheet to define your pages and layout Wink

CSS formatting?, no thanks. For anything other than fonts/borders etc, CSS is a waste of my time - I can do the same stuff using bog standard HTML code in around 10% of the time it takes to do it in CSS (and I don't wysiwyg either!) - and debugging HTML is far easier too.

As an addendum, not all of us are fans of the CSS fixation that alot of the newcomers to web dev seem to have
