    I use this app to choose a different image from r/EarthPorn every hour:

    Yeah, I see it too. I changed it to be just the red square with the following user style:

    .exp-invert-logo #yt-masthead #logo-container .logo-red { width: 34px; }

    Lots of people want a simple, static website with no backend (think anything hosted on GitHub Pages or any Jekyll site).

    For those users, being able to have a contact form with zero server-side code might be a killer feature.

    That said, I don't think the user I'm talking about will be willing to pony up $49/mo.

    Hrm, I can't remember the last time a website changed my cursor.

    The version that's up now really does a much better job of showcasing the product.

    I was going to comment earlier that the product looks cool but that website did a terrible job of showing off the product and to pick a different template (I had recognized the design and thought it was a template, not a site-rip).

    A coworker recently shared one that he got from woodworkerssource.com, at the bottom of an order receipt:

    Funny story, too, David. Every one of our 6,207 hard working (and quite good looking) employees who put your order together is absolutely wiped out - I really think you'd have enjoyed watching the action erupt when your order came through. When I handed it to Jake, our master packager, he looked at the order, smiled, pulled out a pair of his favorite Italian leather gloves and slid them onto his hands. "Nothing but the best," he said. And off he went! As he selected your order, he placed it all on a satin-lined chariot to transport it to the packaging center. And there's more . . .

    All other 6,206 crew members stopped. Every last one of them. They gathered around, lit incense and candles, and watched with hushed awe as he wrapped the entire order in the finest gold-laced cardboard and stretch wrap that money can buy. You could have heard a pin drop.

    In the end, the guys were so thrilled that they wanted to throw a party just for your order. We're talking about a big fiesta with live music, a roasted pig, and a dessert spread of homemade chocolate ganache, Ukranian prune tortes, and cinnamon madeleines. You should have seen the look on the UPS driver's face when he showed up. He thought he was going to pick up the packages as usual, but instead we picked him up and sent him crowd surfing through the warehouse while the band played. You can imagine what happened next, right? Our neighbors came outside to see what the fuss was all about, and when they saw your beautiful order they joined in, and toasted ol' Jake who then delivered a rather moving speech on the joys of working with wood as a means to self improvement.

    Someone must have called the local TV stations because the next thing I knew I had six interviews to handle for reporters who asked, "What does David Rickman intend to make?" But don't worry, your secret's safe. I told them, "World peace." Man! If only woodworking could do that!

    Anyway, the guys hope to see pictures of what you make so we can have another party (I know what you're thinking). I hope you had a great time shopping at Woodworkers Source (and reading this ridiculously long hyperbole of a shipping notification). We enjoyed every minute of it, and we've named you "Customer of the Year." That gets you a pretty good parking spot right out front if you ever come see us. So come see us some time.

    Two important things before we go clean up the mess out back:

    We want you to be happy with your order. Please let us know if you're not. And we love to see pictures of what you make. Did you know we have an online gallery where you can share pictures of a project you've made? It's right here: www.woodworkerssource.com/photopost

    Robert, and the other 6,206 good looking fellas

    Not looking for anything in particular, other than an example of what my client will see.

    Missing at least one important element: What exactly will an invoice look like?

    Also, curious: what are all of the twitter avatars/links at the bottom meant to represent?

    I wholely believe your experience, but I have the exact same experience when I (an Android user) try to do something as simple as grab a phone number from my wife's iPhone.
