What the Heck Just Happened?
Where did the c4 site go? Where's all the stuff that used to be here? What have you guys gone and done now? You just couldn't leave good enough alone, could you. Un-friggin'-believable.
Yes, it's true. After more years than we care to count, we've finally released a redesigned c4.net site. Actually, we've been trying to redesign the site for 2 to 3 years now but hadn't found a design we were satisfied with until early Spring. So, a mere six months later, we're ready to unleash that design on all our poor, unsuspecting customers. No warning. No preview. Just -- wham -- rip the rug right out from under them.
First and foremost, let me apologize for changing everything. We just couldn't help ourselves. Second, let me apologize for forgetting to add the one thing you actually use, whatever that may be. If you find something that you thought was useful on the old site but that no longer exists on the new site, drop us a line. We'll fix it. We'll even repent and beg for forgiveness.
Otherwise, we hope you find the c4 site a bit more useful. We've switched to a design which takes up more screen real estate. What this means is that the content on the page is physically wider. This was a deliberate choice based on long standing trends. Specifically, just about everyone has a 17" monitor these days, which means we can fit a bit more horizontally on your screen. If you don't have a larger monitor, or if you run your 15"e; monitor at a low resolution, meaning you don't get any extra screen real estate, then I do apologize.
Just to give you an idea of what's going on here. We've placed the c4 editorials in the left hand column. We only show the first paragraph or two of the most recent three stories. We also provide a link to archived stories. We plan to provide a mechanism by which you can post comments on the stories. That way, you'll be able to disagree to your hearts content while pointing out the obvious holes in our flawed logic. :)
The second column features items specific to our customers. This includes the "Featured Client" section, web mail, virus warnings, etc. The third column is all Cape related, including weather, tides (provided by capetides.com), events (courtesy of capeevents.com), and whatever else happens to come to mind.
As you will notice, we replaced the banner ads for our customers with descriptions of our customers, including links to their web site. If you'd like to see yourself featured for a day on the c4.net site, then drop us a line and a short, pithy description not to exceed 255 characters. Excessive marketing verbage will be edited.
And that's just the home page. We've added quite a bit more content to our site than what existed previously. In future articles, we will point you at other areas of the site which have been added or greatly enhanced. By all means, if you have any feature requests, complaints, axes to grind, or sun flowers to circulate, let us know. We'd love to hear from you.
