De Monday Morning Update

I’ve been working on this since I posted last. It’s shaping up nicely, although my CMS of choice keeps giving me fits of “no, I won’t do it the way you think I will… you do it MY way or not at all, buddy” attitude. I still think we’re on track for a mid-week launch. Daws and I need to finish writing one section, go over the site again and check for weirdness (ok, unacceptable weirdness, the closer this gets to launching, the weirder I feel), and then make it live. Look for it on Wednesday.

In non-nonDependant news, we had a peachy-keen Halloween. Pictures of pumpkin-gutting, carving, Trunk-or-Treating, and the real deal are forthcoming as soon as I can get them off the camera, exported, imported, uploaded and rebuilt, you’ll be able to see ’em. Hopefully during lunch.

I have a month to pull of a huge complex project here at work. It’s the first day of actual production, and… nothing. I’ve got coder’s block. I’m trying to get excited about writing these JSP’s, and building all these little blocks of markup happiness and it’s just not coming. I’ve reorganized the project directories three times now, created a bunch of empty includes and written some horrible comments for places where code’s going to be. What’s my problem? Code, come outta my fingers!! Get thee to my screen!

  1. Kev, when I have to code and nothing’s coming, I usually discover that the reason is there’s *another* program my mind wants to write, something that’s been teasing the back of my head. So I get that out of the way, and then the Coding Goodness flows. My $0.02, anyway.
    If that doesn’t work, try playing a game. That always frees up da ‘ol mind.
