Actually, that's kind of awesome!
That's exactly how everyone's website looked in the late 90's and early 2000's.
The only thing I'm missing is snow falling in the background and a theme music in (what I think was) an 8-bit midi file
Another great web page design: arngren.net[^] (the text is in Norwegian, but you don't need to understand it to enjoy the design).
For being exact: It isn't a web page design. They had exactly the same design in the mail order days, 30+ years ago, when they distributed printed catalogs to every mailbox in the country every two weeks. Also known from the mail order days: Note that practically all prices end in ...99 or ..998.
Maybe that extreme-ugly design is part of the marketing strategy. The web page comes up in every ranking of ugly-looking pages, and everyone (in Norway) wants to see it ... and then they see some product that they will buy. It works, after 30+ years with the same design.
Any recommendations/experiences for/with services that, for example, sends your phone a code (SMS), or phone apps where all you have to do is approve/decline ?
Yes, this is for my new job, which I'm loving! No need to send codez, just your wisdom for what services rock and what services suck.
They all suck cause I hate having to find my phone to get a code or send a push notification.
Previous job used Duo and current one using Microsoft Authenticator.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
+1 for MS authenticator. There's also Google authenticator. These applications kinda hard to "recommend" though, because you just open it and it rocks up with a set of random digits for authentication. They both do the job.
When I login and type my password correctly, it's because I want to get in and get started. I've started boycotting any services that do anything more than that, except for my surface that uses facial recognition effortlessly as the second bit.
To me, if you say you need to make sure it's me after getting my user name and password, that's equivalent to saying, move on, we don't want you in here!
