The Pussies Miss Em

We’re not dead. We’ve just been insanely busy.

The studio is rolling like nobody’s business. Still on schedule to finish construction and obtain occupancy permits at the beginning of March! We’re still beside ourselves. Now it’s time to pick out paint colors and organize a painting party!

This past week was spent at the in-laws house due to the fact we don’t have Windows and IE installed on our computers. It took almost a week to fix a site we devloped because a little known company we all know and love doesn’t know how to adhere to simple web standards. Go figure. I think if we get this next larger contract we’ll purchase Parallel’s and Windows XP. YACK!

After it was all fixed (or rather broken to be fixed) the client was happy. Not that the client was unhappy before, but they were happy with it, in general. Since then the client has thrown another gig at us so we’ll have to put a proposal together for them. Then we decided to spend a few days actually relaxing at my ‘rents house.

We all watched the Grammy’s last night. Probably the first time since high school I wachted more than a “flip through.” Was it me, or was it all musical performance? Not that I mind, but were any awards won? What’s up with Frank Sinatra singing beyond the grave. Lame. But it was cool seeing Kanye West with Daft Punk. And Brad Paisley and The Time performing was a sight to see. Oh and Prince showing up to give one of the awards. That was random! And I think it should be a law or a requirement that to play on the Grammy’s one can’t lip sync. What a sham. Please remind me, it is about the music, right?

Today we’re going back to Baltimore. It’s been about 8 nights since we slept in our own bed. I think it’s about time. I am sure the pussies miss Em.

  • IE 7 is not too bad; I think MS is really starting to make an effort. IE6, though, really blows.

    We don’t support anything under IE 6, and I was told a couple of weeks ago we’re going to make 7 a baseline and start charging a surcharge for anyone who wants the site to work in 6; it just requires too much additional web development time.

  • I dunno, seems like charging clients extra for IE 6 development is punishing them for something that’s kind of out of their control. Backwards compatibility is part of the business. On the large sites I work on that serve a wide general population, over 60% of their traffic is IE. And of that traffic, another 50% is IE 6. That’s a pretty big percentage of users still using IE 6. If I told them I had to charge them extra for building a site so that the majority of their users could view it properly, I’d have a hard time explaining that.

  • They liked to hype how big the Winehouse performance was going to be, and it was pretty good, but not as great as the pre-commercial announcements of the live feed from London made it sound
