Oh, Happy Day!!

This is work-related so I will post the details on my work-related blog (visit SE Conspiracy – Warning: Reverse DNS Can KILL Your Business!). In short, many of my web hosting customers (and my own sites) have been getting tagged as spam and it has cost me thousands of dollars (literally) in lost income and […]

Great News and Bad News

They almost always come in pairs, don’t they? lol I just got back from seeing the neck specialist. First, the Great News: After a thorough review, the doctor (also a neck surgeon) has assured me that while my neck deterioration is on the worse side of the spectrum for my age, it is still within […]

Ah, A Night At Taurus Restaurant

Last night, Leah and I went out with Terry and Mark for dinner at Taurus restaurant. It was a great night and lots of fun. We were seated in the VIP area and I finally had my filet mignon craving satisfied for a little while! 😉 I haven’t been able to really work much the […]

All This Radiation Can’t Be Good

Well, Progressive has forced me to be exposed to yet more radiation (as if the CT Scan w/ contrast, MRI, and x-rays from before weren’t enough). Now, to fight my case, I had to spend most of the day preparing for and taking new x-rays of my neck for comparison. The x-ray technician had to […]

Speed And Determination

I was handed a few more referrals for web design -some through friends and some through my growing network. I’ve been feeling a bit surprised lately that there is still so much demand for new websites and/or re-design. I suppose that -for me and other designers- this is a good thing. At any rate, a […]

It Is What It Is

Good news first: I just heard back from my potential European client and they said that they have gone from “probably will buy” to “definitely will buy” but they won’t be able to say which pieces of my proposal or how much until next week. So, that’s good news but I still have to wait […]

Another All-nighter

I pulled another all-nighter to finish up the presentation for my potential European client. This is supposed to be my final presentation before I get a ‘yes’ or ‘no’, so that’s a relief. I’ve been up all night getting this ready and I get to take a quick 1-hour nap before I get ready and […]
