Back at it.

My body didn’t have any problem jumping out of bed around six this morning, but I’m having a bit of difficulty convincing my brain that it should be at work today. As has been the case for the past several years, the company that signs my paycheck is dropping a new catalog immediately after the new year begins. This means that pages need updating, server-side redirects need implementing, dynamic functionality needs modification and testing, style-sheets need caressing, and naturally several bits of product data that should have been sitting on my hard drive prior to Christmas need to be tracked down at the last minute. Before the web settled into our lives like a bad head cold, all I had to worry about was making sure the new fonts and clip art collections were copied onto a set of freshly labled floppy disks before we winged into San Francisco for Macworld. Of course, I was usually stuck in front of a Mac Classic in the hotel room, finalizing the kerning pairs in a typeface the night before the show started, but at least there wasn’t a web site needing attention at the same time. Ah, the clockwork regularity of a monstrous year end deadline never ceases to bring a tear of joy to my eye.
