Sounds busy around here

Imagine if you will, the cacophony of power drills, saws, jackhammers, and earth movers. Concrete smashing, wood ripping into new, more functional shapes, and the pounding of virtual nails into the ethereal substrates of databases and user interfaces.

We’re building around here. We’re up late doing it too. The blessing is that in place of steel-toed boots we can wear our slippers.

Work and life are good. Productivity abounds. More coffee anyone?

  1. But don’t you want to wear your steel-toed boots? Come on, they’re the best! The strength in anything is that you can be satisfied at the completion of what you’re building.

    Coffee, definitely.

  2. Ah yes- constructing cross-browser/platform compatibility solutions can seem like the perfect place for protective footwear, however, it typically resembles a place I’m more likely to get burned than have a smashed toe… 🙂 (Though I do have a couple of steel-toed DMs in the closet just in case… I am a prepared coder… heh heh)

    And I’m pleased to report that the late night, (bed around 1am), was worth it in producing the foundation to a site layout I need done ASAP. Yay!
    Now, I’m sat at my desk an hour earlier than usual and coffee is just about done brewing… I’m almost corporate in my own living room! lol

  3. My whole house is wireless, hell, I’m corporate on my front porch when I’m watering my front lawn. All I need is a little mini-fridge so I can have something to drink when I’m typing.

    Now, I have a question for you, all knowing and powerful jEN, how do you get the circle R up on the URL/address field. For the life of me I cannot think of how to do it.

    (now, on a prepared coder level, something I’ve always kept handy is my trusty pocket reference guide for regular expressions … got one of those?)

  4. OK fellas‚Äö?Ñ?¨ I smell a little tutorial brewing… I’ll get one up today if I can. 🙂

    Brian: Yup, sounds like our flat- wireless everywhere. We are a full service geek abode. 😉 As for the regular expressions, I actually have no idea how to use them yet, (PHP is my next skill to learn), but the pocket guide does live here. It’s over on Neil’s desk… The only ‘regular expression’ near my desk for now is the one I pull when IE is actin’ a fool. 🙂 I am interested in them though- I’ve seen the complex things they can achieve and it’s amazing.

    David: The mystery of the cool little icon will be revealed to you both. (You don’t even need to join my cult for this enlightenment… 😉 ) I’ll try to get the tutorial written and posted later today. There’s another cute one I did on my old Mac User Group site‚Äö?Ñ?¨¬¨‚Ćfind “SWiMaCS” in the sidebar of my blog under the “Geek” section. The site was created when I was first learning CSS (so it’s in line for me to rewrite), but isn’t too bad for a first effort. The URL icon is cute though… 🙂
