Website design. Oh, and a picture of my kettle.

I've had to hunt around to find a picture of my new kettle on a website which doesn't require flash.

The manufacturer's website is impossible to navigate unless you've got a flash player installed. So I'm not going to link to it -- no-one's going to link to your product if they have to explain to their readers that after following the link you then have to click on "next" and then click on the third picture on the second row. Web designers take note, flash might look pretty but it can make the website unusable unless you've provided an alternative method of navigation.

Instead, I'm going to link to the retailer's website, a website that's been cunningly designed to render correctly in a wider range of browsers. Go and have a look at my new kettle.
