 The Dirty Lowdown would like to thank all of our wonderful viewers who have supported it throughout its first year on the blogosphere, and have made serving you such a joy. Keep coming back, we love you all!


Some Site Tips From John…

1)   The Dirty Lowdown is laid out using Internet Explorer with Zoom set at 100% (no positive or negative zoom) and Text Size set at “Largest”. What this means to you is that it is also best viewed this way for optimal effect. If you’re already in IE, your zoom size is probably already set at 100%, so you’re just three simple mouse clicks away from viewing the site as it was designed to be viewed for optimal enjoyment:

On the “Menu Bar”, click on “View”. On the drop-down menu, hover the curser over “Text Size”, then navigate it over to “Largest” on the resulting pop-up menu, and click. Now refresh (reload) the page. You’re done. And you’ll see the difference is dramatic. Actually I use these settings for all my websurfing, as my eyes aren’t quite what they used to be…

2)   Check old posts. I add to them all the time. Last night I added a humongous new text section to our Rothschild article, along with a new header pic which displays and examines their coat of arms. I also added comprehensive captions to the photo array displayed in the Kepler-22b planet finding article. I do this all the time…

3)   Hovering the mouse cursor over any image on this website will produce a pop-up caption. 

4)   Comment. This site has been lean on comments and commenters from the very beginning. I’ve tried to get comments up on other sites — often as a professional courtesy — and I can see why. It is generally a frustrating experience to say the least.

But it isn’t like that here. We’ve got what has to be the sweetest, most painless feedback 
system on the net today. I tested it out myself and got a brief comment up successfully in around 30 seconds, using only my initials “JD” as personal information. So come on guys, it just doesn’t get any sweeter than that without receiving a check in the mail for your efforts. Give us some imput: let your feelings, experiences and beliefs be known. That’s what we’re here for, amongst other things…
