I get a lot of requests from clients for a site that can do everything but is easy for them to manage themselves and this is my advise: Use a robust and flexible open source Content Management System like Joomla.

Doing case studies is a method of research. Case studies are in-depth investigations into real-life cases

Based upon data and research that help you to identify a problem and suggest strategies and resolutions.  It also an important way to see how other put key concepts into action.  I will from time to time share what I have learned in my case studies here.

Scoping is an important phase in the design process.

There is a methodology to proposing a website design to a client. Scoping a project is one of the most important, yet most overlooked; steps in the web design/development process. This step must happen before sending a proposal to a client to avoid problems down the road in the design and development process. When scoping a project you need to interview the client, research the client and understand their culture, research their competition, and have them complete a needs analysis.

What are the implications of allowing visitors to store passwords in cookies?

When I ask myself this question the first thing that comes to my mind as a negative result would be a parent making an online purchase, saving their password in the cookie and there 5 year old son get's on while they aren't looking and makes more purchases.  Although this can still happen, when I purchase on Amazon.com I don't have to fill in any user info, not even my cc. While I find this to be incredibly convenient, I can see how it could become a problem.
