Yep, real difficult. They actually expect people to be able to read!


Don't be so glib. White text on a light gray background is not at all easy to read, and my eyesight is quite good. Light gray text on a white background isn't much better. Compound this with link text that has no distinctive highlighting or feedback and you have an exemplar for poor usability! And all of the text is in a size less than the user's default text setting (a practice I find annoying and gratuitous--almost as bad as opening new windows when a link is activated).

And yes, being spied on by a blurry figure with binoculars pointed right at you really _is_ disturbing!

Some of the things on that page, such as white on gray, or that picture are not that great. However, it's not that difficult to find the appropriate links. They do however, need a better "artist".
