ADMIN: List was down over the long (US) holiday weekend

Hi everyone,

The list is now up (so it seems). The list was down over the weekend but now
it looks like it is working again. If you tried to post messages over the
weekend and they didn't work, then you should probably try it again.

I suggest that people look at the archives for the last couple of days first
to determine if their message went through or not.

Best conferences? (CHI, UPA, DUX, etc.)

I'm interested in suggestions for the best
conferences related to our interests.

I can justify up to two conferences per year (possibly
only one), and I want to make the most worthwhile choice.

So, first, are any of the conferences worthwhile? And if so,
if you could only go to one, which one would it be? And if
you could go to two, which two would you choose?

(I've been looking at DUX, CHI, and UPA primarily).

I have created a variety of wireframe templates from scratch in Adobe
Illustrator. I keep them in my library - when I need them I can modify for
future use.

What do you use to make HTML wireframes (X-POST)

I'm conducting some tests: creating wireframes using different
softwares and technologies.

To make sure I'm being comprehensive, if you make HTML wireframes, how
do you make them?

Nielsen - Open non-web dots in new window

I agree with Nielsen's recommendation to open PDFs (and for that matter,
external sites) in a new window.
