Talk about being a dick. When I was scrambling to get the new design up on Saturday (I’d been sitting on it for months) I was having trouble saving documents (Notes/Domino people probably know where this is going). I was stumped. It turned out after what seemed like hours that I had a ‘SaveOptions’ field that was doing what it was told, in this case, don’t save the documents. The field was in a subform and was on almost every form I was testing. Great for all my $$ViewTemplates but not so good on blogs and the like. I couldn’t believe how obvious the problem was. I only figured it out after comparing a form that was working with one that wasn’t…. I guess that I’m getting a little rusty.

Hey Lotus – how about a ‘SaveMeFromBeingADumbArse’ field in 6.5?

Listening to The Throwing Muses. They take the edge off.

gravis digi bag

oh this is cool! If you type ‘gravis digi bag’ in google my site comes up second. I don’t know why I find that so cool… If you’re thinking of buying a digi you definitely should – they are super well made and designed….

New design

At last. Back in April I began thinking about the new site. I vowed during the week that I would have the site live by the end of the weekend. It is not complete – I have not finished the gallery, the rss feed (which I had on the old site for ages but never had a link to it), or the comments facility. I’m not 100% happy with the colour scheme, so I’ll be experimenting with that in the coming months too.

Memento Mori

Far out – I’m listening to Amino by HDU. I’ve ordered the EP Memento Mori and the album Fireworks. Two years is too long without a new HDU album. Here’s hoping?

The other day I asked a bum how he was doing. He replied slowly, “Oh, you know, loike a who-ers nickers, up and down”. His accent left as much of an impression on me as his answer.

Software times

I’ve installed the latest version of Mozilla Firebird . I’d had a few issues with 0.6 remembering my settings. It wasn’t until I installed 0.61 that I realised that I hadn’t created a profile when I had first installed 0.6, which had led to the problems.

I’ve also installed imesh to compliment Kazaa, although imesh is riddled with spyware and the like. If it doesn’t deliver its outta here. I downloaded ‘Finding Nemo’ – it was a poor quality copy and I thought the film kinda sucked. However, I may have downloaded a ‘pre-release’ demo, ie, it may not be the final cut. I still haven’t been able to download T3, but the hunt goes on.

I also downloaded a demo of Zend Studio. And a copy of my old favourite Notes Buddy (although you don’t need Notes to use it). I love having my PC read me my emails!

moment of clarity…

I threw the current design of this site togther just under a year ago. I knew it wasn’t designed with the ‘end-user’ in mind, I have just had a glimpse of how awful it is. I dig the orange, I like the way that the site looks unique, but, for some reason, I just had an insight into the clumsiness of the interface. I think that most of these issues are resolved in the new design. I think that it is important to get a simple yet solid little site up soon. I pledge that I will do this by the end of next weekend (17 August). I have spoken.

I remember Bill Clinton talking about what book he had on his ‘nightstand’. I guessed what a nightstand was, and here’s a picture of mine. Sans books.
