USSM Labs, innovating for you
Update: the look I was testing had a bug that prevented commenting more than once, so I swapped back.
The look you see (assuming you’re here before I swap back) is one of the better USSM candidates. The huge drawback is the fixed width: I’m essentially unwilling to go with something where a nav bar takes up more than 20% of the page at a reasonable resolution, and I’d prefer to get that down to 10%.
Interesting prototype features: live search (try it, it’s scary), and live comments.
There’s a huge, huge performance penalty we’re paying even running this on the tinkering-friendly weekend, so enjoy it while you can.
Also, comments are won’t allow submission, gives a “Sorry, you can only post a new comment once every 15 seconds. Slow down cowboy.” which is awesome. I threw something into their bug db about it.
