Product description

From the Back Cover

128 Different Ways to Tick People Off Online! Building Really Annoying Web Sites Blind Them with Bothersome Backgrounds! "When you want to make users shudder and turn their heads in disgust ... sometimes the simplest approach is the best – and nothing is simpler than a Web page background. Choose the right (that is, the wrong) background color or wallpaper, and you can make users shield their eyes, toss their lunch, and develop painful migraine headaches." (See Chapter 1) Pester Them with Pointless Pop–Ups! "You can elaborate on the basic annoying pop–up window to create pop–ups that ′hide′ themselves behind other windows, that fill up your entire screen (and hide your Windows task bar!) and – here′s the holy grail of annoying effects – that users simply can′t close, no matter how hard they try. After you learn these tricks, how much more annoying can you get?" (See Chapter 5) Internet Browser Discover the Most Annoying Web Site Ever Created!

" Whether it′s an annoying Flash animation ... a request for a user ID or password, or the need to complete some long and complicated registration form, anything that blocks your entrance to a Web site is a source of major irritation.... Have fun implementing these techniques – and get ready to watch your traffic count drop to near zero!" (See Chapter 11) Just Kidding! "I know you will never implement any of the maddening tricks and techniques presented in this book. ... All that is beneath you, right?"

Since then he′s written more than three dozen how–to books on a wide variety of topics. People claim that he has not only an annoying personality but also a purposefully subversive nature.
