I just realized something

I just realized that I really haven’t posted anything even vaguely personal in quite some time. Everything lately has been almost strictly tech, web, or internet-related. For that, I apologize. I guess I’ve been in a little bit of a slump lately and have been trying not to address it openly. I can’t even quite explain what’s been up. All I want to do is sleep, all the time, all day. I rarely wake up feeling totally rested even when I do get “enough” sleep. This weekend is Halloween…whoopie. As you can pick up, I am not exactly excited. I’ve never been such a fan of this holiday. All too often it’s just an excuse for people to do stupid things just because they are behind a mask of pseudo-anonymity. Ah well, I have a ton of work to get done this weekend anyways so we’ll see how much I actually get to enjoy Halloween. Back to work I go.

    Site Updates

    It was brought to my attention that the Contact me and the Tell-a-Friend links while pretty and exciting weren’t functional. It turns out I had the email settings switched around, so now both of those should be working correctly. Also, you may or may not have noticed that the sidebar has changed slightly, this was to make it work cross browser and cross platform. It’s a compromise I was willing to make. Apparently IE doesn’t like negative margins…damn you MS. Some people may have noticed the alternating backgrounds on the comments and the alternating backgrounds on the referral page this was recently accomplished with the help of a wonderful site called EE Designs…granted if you don’t use EE you won’t find it all that useful but that is not the point.
