VeloNews Interactive

Looks like Velonews.com has outgrown the tried and true three column, 800 pixel wide (ok, 777 with a buffer on the sides) format just about everyone on the planet used for years. Including, I might ad, this website.

It’s coming straight at ya for 2008: VeloNews Interactive.

I’ll bet the link changes in the coming days and weeks as their new page replaces their old layout. I’m sure they’ll just redirect the domain and you won’t even miss the old layout. Much like, I might ad, this website. It all looks pretty good from where I’m sitting. Inline style, divs instead of tables, and now a whopping 1075 pixels wide. I guess they knew big jonny upgraded his monitor last year, eh?

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. look Boss the pain the pain.. man i miss norcal rides.. fuck..

    ohh love the new format.. :)

    Tour of California. The peloton climbs toward a wind farm during Stg 3, east of San Jose

  2. My trusty old 17″ monitor doesn’t likey the new look.

    Upgrade or die my ass.

    Good thing I never liked that site anyway. Not enough porn. Which, by the way, is how I’m beginning to feel about this site.

  3. you think this window dressing will lead those fuckers to actually do some journalism?

    Oh yeah, right, they just didn’t know the extent of doping in the fucking peloton. Bull fucking shit. Everybody who was within six degrees of Kevin Fucking Bacon knew about the doping, yet somehow Velonews, the fucking Faux News of the bike world, could only report on what comes off the AP wire. Late to the party and toning it down whenever possible, for all the fucking good that did them. Pro cycling is dying.

    No balls in Boulder.

  4. Their website is awful, from a programmatic standpoint. The thing doesn’t even come close to passing the validator and it’s full of depreciated code. Plus, inline styles are the worse idea ever.

    Either velonews needs to fire their webdesigners, or they got taken for a bunch of suckers that don’t know how to use Drupal. Way to waste money.

    No way is VeloSuck gonna fire ANYONE in the Good Ol’ Boulder Long-Term Cocksucker Office. They just don’t do that shit. Once you prove your level of incompetence, and lack of energy, you’re in the Soviet People Republic of Boulder bureaucracy for LIFE!

    Could they of been any slower, or used shittier methods to incorporate video? Search function that actually leads to an object wanted? No fucking way.

    Lack of energy on ANY level to bring the cycling doping story, in which cycling doping led the way for the realization of world sport doping. Of course not! As if they don’t know nor talk to fucking racers who know all there is to know about doping. They couldn’t investigate their way to the kitchen to make a ham sammich.

    Fucking lazy ass dumb fuck off the back losers.

    There is more fucking relevant doping shit on DC, and it’s because of the simple fact that people are real and not hiding behind a myth of promoting the sport, but actually talking about it. Now if only Velomyth would actually try reporting on it.

    “Lance Armstrong won’t talk to us …. wwhhhhaaaaaa!”

  6. loooks like CNN…

    i don’t like cnn.com

    whatever…

    i only look over there to see if O’Grady got anything new in print or if Dr Dawn has a new article…

    maybe this will make it easier for that? or maybe if Patty Oh Gee will just link from here when he puts new content up over there, then i could stop looking all together (almost)…

  7. “it’s full of depreciated code”

    DEPRECATED … the fucking word is deprecated.

  8. looks like confusing visual diarrhea to me. sorry to my velohomies but this is like 100 pounds of shit in a five pound bAG.

  9. “this is like 100 pounds of shit in a five pound bAG.”

    nah, that’s be Bicycling… velosnooze is just 5 pounds of shit in a 5 pound bag (because of luminary writing for them named Patrick O’Great One Grady).
