Web pages using non standard ports

There seems to be a number of sites using non standard port numbers for some reason or other. For example: http://www.sismologia.cl:8000/ Why does anyone think this is a good idea? Don’t developers and designers realise that, for very valid security reasons, many companies restrict outbound traffic to common ports such as TCP/80 and TCP/443? Why make it hard for your customers?

It’s just not good enough!

  2. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better? outlook 365 login
