Okay, so I’ve “officially” transitioned the site to load 2010. It’s not entirely together yet in the way that it should be—most notably, there’s a dirty, ugly hack to make IE6/7 work. I haven’t tried IE5 or FF2. I won’t ever try either, in all likelihood. We’re rendering more-or-less the same way now in IE6, IE7, FF3, Opera 9, and Safari/Konqueror. That’s good enough for me. I’m not a technology guy anymore, so I don’t have to care quite so much about things like standards compliance.
Next up: the paper.
It’s a white, snowy day here. There was a time not so many years ago (okay, more years ago than I like to admit) when a white, snowy day woke me up, brought me to life, made me powerful and productive.
This is not so much the case anymore. In my growing old age it would appear that white days full of snow just put me to sleep, make me lose track of time and have fuzzy thoughts. I feel as though I could just lay down and nap for hours.
It’s not a bad feeling, or at least it wouldn’t be if I didn’t have work looming today and the start of a new teaching semester looming tomorrow and no time nor strong motivation to get busy doing either.
If you let your guard down and relax, snow can make time stop and traffic disappear. Magic stuff.
Of course, if you try or even just think about it a little, both time and traffic come rushing back despite the falling snow. But who wants time and traffic in life?
