Magnetic Elements Toolkit : Anyone actually receive a toolkit?

All,

Has anyone ordered and actually *received* a copy of the Magnetic
Elements toolkit (from http://www.magments.com/index.html)?

Managing Translated Text Length

All,

We are working on a project for an embedded system GUI that will be
translated into several languages. We have designed the layout around a
set of US English text strings that will be presented in a proportional
(non-fixed width) fonts. We did our best to allow for expansion when the
strings are translated, however there a still several instances where
there will only be a finite amount of space to fit a translated string.

"The Curse of Information Design" - ??

The website A List Apart reposted an article by Scott Cohen about the
apparent curse of information design (see

<http://www.mac.com//redirect/http://www.alistapart.com/articles/curse>
). It really ruffled my usability feathers- what do you think?

Users' mental models

Hi Shalini, all,

Yes, this subject is of paramount importance. Given that you are to
provide a web site fopr to do something on it, noy just for the user
to like it or not, but to act on it.
A web site or any other human-computer interaction with a device that
can be perceived by the user as stubborn as a computer can be.
This is due to a lack of mental model coupling.

On the other hand, sometimes we meet another person and soon we find
out that there is good communication, that without saying nothing
there are implicit agreements and coincidences.
