Creating this new little corner of the universe it becomes clearer to me than ever just how powerful Drupal is, and at the same time, just how ragged it is in some ways, a wild mix of frustration and exhilaration.
In any case, things are coming along. I think it may be time to bring commenting back as well. We’ll see if I live to regret that; the previous incarnation also allowed commenting at first, but people began to use it as a space to take out their personal frustrations with me on the one hand or to advertise random products on the other, so I killed commenting after only a few months.
I don’t really expect to get rid of the advertising, but I can deal with that. It’s the other nonsense that is make or break once again for comments.
Tomorrow is the last day of the last weekend before the new semester officially begins for me and I’ll be teaching three courses once again while also continuing to work at my other gigs.
We did some financial battle planning today. There’s more to be done. Suffice it to say, this amount of work is not too much at all; in fact, it is not nearly so much as we’d love to have.
I both like this new edition very much already (there’s still a lot of work to do) and also really don’t like it in a lot of subtle ways. I want a different, more readable typeface. I’d like it to be more personalized, less off-the-shelf. I’d like it to actually serve a function for once.
I guess that’s hoping for too much.
