Well. I’ve returned from my adventures and as usual, at a loss. Other than being behind on the happenings, news, email etc., my browser was updated. This -as you may know- is the equivalent of having someone borrow your car and adjust the mirrors to their necessity. It took the better part of several hours to re-arrange things to my liking -it is not fun to re-code deprecated (yet completely serviceable) add on widgets. I have one add on I can’t do without; it’s been deprecated since v.3.0 (Firefox is v.11 now) but I’m happy now having fiddled with configuration files to restore the utility. So much blather no? Point is, I’m having to readjust my mirrors before I can drive this thing.
This coming week should be fun. I’m looking forward to drawing names for the book giveaways posted in my absence (giving away stuff is fun!). I have to post a question of consequence -what it means to be a designer, think deeply on it please- and lastly, am thinking of resurrecting an old project I’d mothballed thinking it wasn’t so useful. However, circumstances suggest it may be. You can be the better judge of it.
In any event, here is a listing of entries posted on this site for this period over the past seven years with still more in the archives. Hope your weekend is lovely.
