Ugliest logo of the year Maybe the design of is just as bad as any other website but what's really unique about this company brochure site is the logo. "We Develop Success" in quotation marks as well. Why? Is that not what you do? Or is it a quote from someone anonymous?

The HTML code stinks of Microsoft-only. There's loads and loads of code like this:

<script language="JavaScript"><!--
if(MSFPhover) { MSFPnav14n=MSFPpreload("_derived/CSAS2 Budget 
Management.htm_cmp_ice174010_vbtn.gif"); MSFPnav14h=MSFPpreload(
"_derived/CSAS2 Budget Management.htm_cmp_ice174010_vbtn_a.gif"); }
// --></script><a href="CSAS2%20Budget%20Management.htm" 
language="JavaScript" onmouseover="if(MSFPhover) 
document['MSFPnav14'].src=MSFPnav14h.src" onmouseout="if(MSFPhover) 
width="147" height="31" border="0" alt="Budget Management" 

You'll get quite a shock when you visit the site with Firefox because the letters "csdc" is shown as <big> to the power of 20!! Here's a screenshot of it in Safari too

Whilst I'm at it I might as well complain about what they do as well as complain about their website. You might excuse them for belonging to the late 90's when my sites were ugly too but the footer says 2006 and made of the Modified date's of the HTML documents date back in 2006 too. Fortunately their introductory description helps a lot to tell you what they do:

"CSDC is a growing business dedicated to providing value to customers by selling quality products at competitive prices and keeping an agenda on each of our customer accounts. By doing this, we hope to attract businesses who are interested in getting a technological edge through the computing industry."

Let's have a look at some screenshots of that "technological edge through the computing industry" then.

Pick your favorite user interface:

Fucking LOL!


I think the proper term for these UI designs is "angry fruit salad" - it's even in the Jargon File.
