Website Facelift

The eBranch has been working on a facelift to the website for several months.  The facelift is now complete.  The changes include:

  • Navigation menus were reworked to be more compact.  In addition, clicking on a menu item takes you directly to the page.
  • Locations dropdown menu once again includes all branch locations for one-click access
  • Links to important content are reorganized, made more prominent
    Branch pages are more streamlined
  • Design is brighter, more graphics-based, less text
  • The outdated Spanish language section has been removed.  In its place is a Google translation option for Spanish, Arabic, Persian, Urdu, and Vietnamese.

We  hope you enjoy the redesigned website.  We welcome any comments or questions you may have.

Keep Me Out, Please!

keep me out logoDo you find yourself checking your Twitter account 4,365,241 times a day?  Are you convinced that if you don't check CNN every five minutes, the world might spin out of control?  Well, the first thing you need to do is step back and take a deep breath.  Ok, now step forward.  Ok, now step back.  Ok, now I'm just messing with you.  But really, now that you're hopefully distracted from those other websites, doesn't it feel good?

Hulu.com: A New Way to Watch TV

When I was a kid, I remember rushing home after school to watch my favorite cartoons like He-Man and Thundercats (I had a big brother so I rarely watched girly stuff). If I didn't make it home in time, I wouldn't catch the beginning of the show - or I might miss it altogether! Those were the days before we had cable TV and we only had 6 or so channels to choose from and we had to actually get up and walk to the TV to change the channel because we didn't have a fancy-schmancy "clicker." Eventually, we got cable TV and later a VCR. Finally, we could record things and watch them whenever we wanted - as long as we remembered to put in a blank tape and set the VCR to record. Fast-forward to adulthood and TiVo. Oh, how I have loved my TiVo!...
