Usability improvement applied toward Drupal 7

Just had my first patch towards Drupal 7 committed. It was as simple usability fix that involved nothing more than the deletion of 3 lines of CSS from Garland, but still, it's exciting.


Web site usability and bathroom findability

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary the other day and a large part of the festivities involved me _not_ touching a computer. My work is almost always on my mind, though (sorry, Sam), and at lunch, I stumbled upon the realization that what a person goes through trying to find a bathroom in a restaurant is a great illustration of what we go through when we try to use web sites. That is, bathroom findability is analogous to web site usability. Refer to the footnotes below to see the similarities.
