Reminder

It’s there, sitting underneath the surface, never too far out of reach. A friend’s situation brings it back, but it is less painful this time, and I know it will continue to fade, to become a dusty memory. Each iteration dulling the anguish, drizzling out the flame. I don’t cling to it, it is not a beacon, guiding my way or a siren calling me home. It does not weigh down on my shoulders or hang heavy round my neck. But it is real, it is there and I will not deny it that. I know I could store it away somewhere easily found, where the light reaches and highlights the sharp reality of it, but I won’t, it would …

Gossip?

Friday night, beer, dancing = groggy head, sore legs and FUN!. Mind you that might have been something to do with the ratio of males to females (not to mention the ‘attributes’ of the females themselves…). Also picked up some more tidbits of gossip, I would love to share them with you, but you never know who might be reading this (you know who you are!! tee hee…)

Sing when it hurts

“Like a broken arrow, I’ll catch the tail wind and draw the clouds, burning sugar, as black as smoke, closing walls; I open my heart. She sings when she hurts. It’s good to sink deep inside, to my only touchstone. She’s a friend in the dark, my strength, my memories. She delights in torture, but she holds my hand and never shields me. Because the best shield is to accept the pain, then what can really destroy me? Let me close my eyes and lie invisible, and perhaps the clouds will pass through me.” Ooberman – Shorley Wall. Gets me everytime, so I thought I would share it with you.

Net-less

Wow, it’s amazing how much I’ve come to depend on the Internet. A few server hassles at work meaning no Internet connection for most of the day. It’s not like I surf all day, but you know when you get that ‘hmmm I’ll just check..’ thought, imagine not being able to do that, especially when you are used to using the Internet regularly. Yikes. I’m trying to think back to before the Internet was available, and quickly realising that I’ve never been in that situation. My first website went live in late 1995 (no longer there sadly), it was my first job (other than McDonalds), so I don’t know of any other way. How the hell did anyone find anything …

Designer? moi?

CSS Madness spreading the word as requested. Although I’m guessing that most folks that visit here will also visit there. Oh and thanks for the email six, one thing I hate more than a designer that is better than me, is a modest designer who is better than me…LOL

Help Standard

OK, fixed the counter code. Ohh and whilst I remember, and I might post this on a discussion group somewhere, how many people who actively use web resources are Technical Communicators, e.g. people who are not design websites but information products? Just curious. I’ve also just remember that I meant to check up on the progress of a Help standard for web. Can’t remember who was chairing it, but it’ll be listed somewhere on the W3C site.

Zeldman

OK, I have a favour to ask. Can everyone who visited recently, please visit again tomorrow? Lost my counter settings, just before Zeldman linked to me. Typical, I might have gotten into double figures for the week…
