His wardrobe is completely unusable.

A Jacob post is kind of like a Rock Star asking how the people in the balcony/on the lawn are.

Will usability satirists ever learn about leaving directories open?

I have no usability issues with open directories. You can find nifty stuff in them sometimes.

Wow, Ryland, that AP link is sensational!

Jakob thumbs up? Jakob thumbs down? Nope.

Haha... that's great.

You should see all of the things we've done with Jacob over at RedCricket.

Note to self: when writing snarky articles pointing out the hypocrisy in Jakob's site's usability flaws, try not to include any dead links that point to my own computer. (This section. Click on asterisk.) D'oh! It's the curse of drag-and-drop HTML.

Currently the site is rather simple and shallow

I've taken that quote WAAAY out of context, but it's funnier that way, so it's ok.

Hmm.. design advice from someone who's living room looks like this?

Sorry, couldn't resist.

pracowity and lagado, those images would have been better rendered in .pdf format. :-)
