Yes, that linoleum is pretty dated.

For my web design brethren: I love these IE6 discussions and when to phase out support. My advice: NOW.

Early mornings are the reason I went freelance. Waking up to an alarm ruins my day, every time.

Mon Aug 02 15:31:09 +0000 2010

2am, and I am carefully inspecting all my domains to make sure nothing went wrong in a server swap. Party time for this freelancer.

Also, I'd like to say, if you don't like Johnny Cash's Legend of Henry's Hammer, then you are dumb.

Tue Aug 03 06:53:36 +0000 2010

Also, I'm a total jerk for not saying congrats to the wifey, @hillarywasson, for her first day at her grown-up job.

Tue Aug 03 07:02:08 +0000 2010

Not quite done hypertweeting while 'working'. Tonight: walked mutts, watched True Blood, ran 3 miles, workedworkedworked. It's a good life.

You and me both, buddy. I hope you've cut off IE6 support to save some of your sanity.

Single. Wifey goes in triplicates, so I guess we average out to doubles.

Tue Aug 03 20:15:03 +0000 2010

Server swap finalized. Already a feeling of relief washes over me as I'm not all that concerned about it crashing anymore (fingers crossed)

Also, the Dell requires an expensive adapter to work with Apple laptops, and doesn't have the built-in power for the laptop.

I'm jealous of you for the next month or so, until I get my 27". Then you can be jealous of me.

Seems like its not going to take much time to recoup the cost of that new super-server. Yay for irresponsible business decisions that work.

Thu Aug 05 03:37:55 +0000 2010

Of course Photoshop would crash as I try a complex maneuver like deleting a layer. I'd say this happens 1/3 of the time I try it.

Thu Aug 05 04:11:56 +0000 2010

I was just contacted by a guy who ripped me off on a project a few years ago looking for 'overflow work'. How things change....

Fri Aug 06 20:03:35 +0000 2010

@ainose Your Galleria module for Drupal rules. I need some help tweaking it though. Are you available for hire for a project?

Mon Aug 09 21:28:10 +0000 2010

It's a thunderstorm, so time for a cheesy horror movie. Life rules.

Love spending $1,100 on my car, only to be told I need to spend more.

As a fellow freelancer, you probably drive about as much as I do. Seems like a waste of money doesn't it?!

Tue Aug 10 21:14:35 +0000 2010

Waiting for the wifey to get out of work, meanwhile enjoying the crazy lightning show.

Wed Aug 11 01:08:51 +0000 2010

Being productive, and its actually the last thing I want to be right now.

Wed Aug 11 19:10:26 +0000 2010

My house is officially for sale. Who wants it?

Wed Aug 11 20:27:59 +0000 2010

#gmaildown, and its ruining my day.

Wed Aug 11 20:46:33 +0000 2010

Ya know what they say about the cheapest clients being the hardest to please and most time consuming? I'm livin' through it right now.

You're who I need to talk to then... need someone to develop a custom skin. Can you help?

Not a bad list, but they forgot the sleeping bag against the tree. Happy Friday the 13th!

Fri Aug 13 21:33:08 +0000 2010

Typical Monday: Hundreds of emails sent, dozens of phone calls answered, no real work accomplished. Good times.

Mon Aug 16 21:03:34 +0000 2010

Trying to move out of webmail and into a dedicated program. Works great except for my 30,000 messages in my inbox. Whoops.

Tue Aug 17 16:40:15 +0000 2010

Hoping to launch 3 websites by the end of the week. Can I do it? Probably not, but here's to tryin'.

Wed Aug 18 05:25:58 +0000 2010

Imagine my surprise seeing @thatsiebguy while researching servers. It's like sorta-half knowing a celebrity!

Thu Aug 19 02:02:44 +0000 2010

After endless meetings, phone calls, and server issues I'm finally ready to actually start working today. And it's only 6:00.

Thu Aug 19 23:19:13 +0000 2010

Everytime I get a Skype call on my iPhone, especially over 3G, I think about how amazingly awesome technology is.

#freelance advice: Invest in a continuous ink system for your printer. It'll save you a fortune.

Are you related to an Eric Terpstra?

I worked fairly extensively today with a client's 27" iMac. I almost bought one on the way home after drooling over it the whole time.
