xbox - One or 360?

My son is wanting an xbox for his birthday. He said to me he's happy to get a 360 but I'm just wondering if that is OK or not? I don't follow gaming at all so I have no idea whether 360 is ancient outdated technology or not...

Any assistance greatly appreciated!

Agile Billing...

As we are moving into larger projects - estimating becomes more fuzzy and defining all the requirements up front is often unrealistic - so we are looking at other options for managing cash flow during development.

So I am wondering if anyone in the community is using agile billing for development projects (basically the client buys a sprint (or more) at a time - so 2 weeks or 4 weeks, etc. see http://www.smashingmagazine.com/… for an example), and if so how is it working out?

Any advice or issues you had in implementing such a strategy? I would suspect that some client education would be necessary - and I am thinking about different ways to sell the benefits of the strategy to both parties.

Kids in NYC?

Is it possible to raise kids in NYC?

There's such a wealth of culture and educational experiences, but the rents are so high and space is limited. How do people actually afford enough space and have enough spare cash to live life comfortably?

Working Interview

So I just finished an interview for ad agency in NY.
The position is for Senior Designer, the interview went great, it was actually a great talk the atmosphere was really flowing and they liked what they saw.

So I just checked my e-mail and found out they want me to come back to do a "sort of working interview. This way we can get a feel if we would be a good fit for each other" <- exact words.

Now, I've never done anything like this before and it sounds not professional. But, what do you guys think? Is this something normal you get asked every now and then? They seem to like what I asked for salary. Please share any thoughts.

browser problem

This just started today. In google chrome everything is gigantic. And you would think its just the browser zoom, but nope, it's set to 100%, so something else is off. Any clues?

Template ID

I have an ex-client from my former agency who has approached me to help him with a problem he is having with said former agency. The agency just put him over the barrel for a $10k+ website in 8 months, and he's pretty sure this is a template (and I can't disagree). I'm trying to help him track down the template this might be. They didn't send a live link, just a flat graphic, so I assume they just Firebugged the template demo site and screen grabbed it, thus making it hard to use a template sniffing tool.

It screams template to me, do you agree? Any luck from the QBN team?

Font ID/Advice

Looking for a similar serif, something similar to the original letterforms. I thought it was Sentinel, but it's just not, feels totally different. I have a concept I'd like to customize in a similar style, but a little more nautical and coming up flat on options. Commercial or free is fine.

Thanks in advance.
