Another maddening thing about last week's Nightingale Associates site (www.nightingaleassociates.com) was the little 'up' arrow - more a notch at the interface between two navigation bars. The lower bar appears when you click on an item in the upper one, say 'commissions'. Its subcategories are spelled out in this second bar and the little arrow points up to 'commissions' - a bit like a dog looking at your finger when you point to the bone you've just thrown. You don't notice this until you follow the arrow up and click on 'commissions' and, naturally, nothing happens.

It eventually dawns on you that Nightingale Associates has simply changed the meaning of 'up' to 'down'. Doh. So you click on a category below and begin looking at the pictures.

Following that old rule that you should never use a few words when 20 will do, the site takes exactly 29 words to circumlocute the widely used instruction 'click for larger image'. Actually, you have to hold down Shift and then click. Ergonomic, not.

Oh, and there is a big copyright 'disclaimer' with each big image. Er guys, it's a copyright claim or even assertion, not a disclaimer.
