OF ME AND MY COMPUTER
Well, I have just worked the last day and a half at home. And, actually, I find that I am not getting distracted. If anything, I find that I am too focused. I've got my coffee by my side and my choice of music. I sit and I fiddle with graphics and look at code.
Right now the challenge with one site is trying to figure out what the last person was doing with the code. I can tell that either an html editor wrote the code for them or the person didn't have a solid grasp of the functions of the code. With that site I'm going to make some improvements but work with what they've got. No point in re-writing the whole site, is there?
The other site I'm doing from scratch. Most of the graphics that the client gave us I had to open in Illustrator and then export into PhotoShop. I'm breaking all sorts of rules with regards to images and the web but they will work and they will look good. If I had my choice about it I would have at least specified sizes and resolution for the images.
Nonetheless, I am being somewhat challenged creatively and am enjoying parts of the process. It does get lonely, though. Just me and my computer.
T. and I are flat broke right now. I can't wait to get some sort of paycheck. We have bills and we just bought a stereo for T.'s car. Basically, we spent money before we got it and then, of course, we didn't get it. As long as I get a paycheck next week things will be okay and we will be able to pay rent. Ugh. I hate these things, these money things. So unpleasant.
Frankly, working at home changed the rules a little bit and I'll be making less than if I worked in the office. I guess that's the tradeoff, though, isn't it? I can live with that. Yes, I can.
I don't have much to write today and I'm tired of sitting here in this chair so I think I'll close early. There's a new link up in the featured link section. Ignore me.
