Monto en su ciudad en un Trojan Horse negro grande
Estoy mirando para divertirme cierto
Una cierta clase de cópula pronta a disparar
“Saludos de Club America que usted” dice que la muchacha en la puerta
“Nosotros acepta todas las mentiras importantes
Amamos cualquier clase de fraude
Enciéndase tan adentro y goce…
Enciéndase adentro y goce!!!”

I ride into your town on a big black trojan horse
I’m looking to have some fun
Some kind of trigger-happy intercourse
“Club America salutes you” says the girl on the door
“We accept all major lies
We love any kind of fraud
So go on in and enjoy…
Go on in and enjoy!!!”

Check Out Our Public Library’s New Kid-Friendly Website: Ahora en Espanol, Chinese

Monday, March 1st, 2010

The San Francisco Public Library is relaunching its website today – check it out, if you’d like.

I don’t know all what the changes are, but you’ll see the differences I’m sure.

If the noisy new kids section irritates you within two seconds, well, that just goes to show you’re not a kid. Turn down your speakers first, Gramps.  

The deets:

SanFrancisco Public Library Re-launches sfpl.org
         
After two years of planning and design, San Francisco Public Library is pleased to unveil its new Web site at sfpl.org.
The new site is intended to be more user friendly and inclusive; it provides a variety of formats to locate online information from SFPL. For example, the online catalog of materials, with a query box located in the upper right hand corner of the Web site, enables patrons to search for materials using either the classic catalog or the new Explore catalog which leverages Web 2.0 technology to offer more items related to a search.
“Among the major new enhancements to our Web site is the ability to offer a wealth of online resources and information to our diverse community, thanks to translated versions of web pages in Spanish and Chinese,” said City Librarian Luis Herrera.
SFPL staff devoted time to studying the needs of its patrons and the development of Web 2.0 features and then worked with Desite Design, a San Francisco web development firm, to execute and deploy the new online presence.
The overall site offers a more modern display of information intended to keep library patrons and online visitors better informed about the variety of collections, programs, services and calendar of events provided by San Francisco Public Library.
New links enable all to obtain quicker access to information such as dynamic listings of events linked by branch or by series of interest. Links on each event page make it easier to share information from the calendar. Users also can learn about current highlights at the library through a series of rotating spotlights on the home page.
Online visitors can find information about the branches in the SFPL system by clicking to a dedicated page for each branch. The site also offers Library podcasts and videos and new photo gallery features. To enhance the user experience, the site is programmed with print settings that avoid wasting paper and the ability to change text size for readability.
The children’s section of sfpl.org was also redesigned. The colorful and engaging kid’s site includes a cable car, a seal, Sutro Tower, the Golden Gate Bridge and of course the city’s ever-present fog. Desite worked with illustrator Shawn Rosenberger to create a colorful and interactive area that is very distinct from the main site.
