â€œWhat did you do with your Waitangi long weekend, Uncle Daniel?â€
Well, nieces and nephews, I spent most of my weekend sitting in front of the computer because Old Grandpa Davies from Auckland wanted a shop for his web site and (me being me) I thought that would be a good opportunity to fix a few issues that had been bugging me with the site since it went live last year.
Of course, the result was that I introduced a few more issues while taking care of the old ones, and foolishly didn’t start testing in Internet Explorer 6 until after the design work was finished. Imagine how I felt at 4 o’clock this morning when I found that something was dreadfully badly broken in IE only. About 75% of our customers, maybe more, use IE so this would be a bad thing.
I’ve got quite a bit of, er, finessing to do but the guts of it is done now so I’ll put my feet up for a bit and watch a DVD and then catch up on last night’s lost sleep. Big cricket day tomorrow, as well finishing the Academy shop to the client’s satisfaction.
Also managed to miss my Capital Times deadline (bummer) so there’ll be a bumper review in next week. and I’m being dive-bombed by moths – what’s that about?
