On The Guardian's website

1. On The Guardian's website


This is a Nederlog of December 22, 2014.

It also is the second Nederlog of today (the other one is an update about my supplements, and concluded thay I am a bit better now - just a bit, but it is true - than I have been since 1988 (!!)) and it is a brief one, because I still got to do other things as well.
1. On The Guardian's website

I discovered that I really like The Guardian, especially the last 1 1/2 years
, in which I wrote a daily crisis report (a daily activity that has now ceased, as daily activity, for I need the time to do some other things, for which I now also have the health, though there will be more crisis reports).

It is not that I agree with all (I certainly do not) but it is usually fairly detailed, it is normally
well written, and it takes its readers seriously, and the last two things are no longer true in Holland, where the papers have radically fallen in quality since 2010 and have also been considerably simplified.

Also The Guardian has a really well designed site - or did so until today, and it is this that the present Nederlog is about:

The present opening of The Guardian has just three photographs; has lots of colored pieces that are totally dysfunctional; shows a lot of text; has just two videos, and that is it.

No warnings, nothing available about the US (though you can get there by typing "/us", after "guardian" in the address) and there also is nothing to be found on the site, except that I found below an article this statement:
We’re doing some maintenance right now. You can still read comments, but please come back later to add your own.
I say. I much hope this - "some maintenance" - is the explanation, for the site presently looks a lot worse than it normally did, the last 1 1/2 years.
