Crisis averted…

Posted in Crazy Wisdom on Tuesday, June 21, 2005 at 3:38 pm by flerly.

Yesterday, I screamed at the empty house. I cried. I pulled my hair. It’s called… work. In a moment of clarity, I realized that the bizarre process of filling in graphics for our “pre-existing templates” is akin to putting together a jigsaw puzzle, where you have to build the pieces and no one ever showed you the cover of the box to give you any idea how it should fit together. The models provided by development, meant for use in creating the pieces so a finished product can be uploaded all at once, are, to put it very mildly, just wrong. Little things… typos in the actual filename needed, dimension sizes off by a few pixels, oh and surprise this one section of one template actually rotates through 30 images, but we won’t tell you their names… we’ll just let you get a bunch of broken images until it randomly gets back to image 1 and looks correct again. Wheeeee. Oh, and just for fun… we’ll do that all again on another area of the site, use a different sized image, but require all the same filenames — be sure you keep that stuff in a separate folder, now!

Ugh. Damn. Snarl. Growl. I laughed, I cried, I finished — almost two days late. The customer is thrilled. Gosh gee golly, let’s do it all again for someone else now.

Well, after getting the thumbs-up from the customer, I paused to show love by performing my Acts of Service for the cats, namely cleaning the litter box, refilling the dry food, and giving out canned tuna and treats. In exchange for the continued love they haven’t peed on the futon (or anyplace else unexpected) in a while now. Good kitties.

Also, kitchen trash is taken out and there’s once again food in the fridge. Just need to unload the dishwasher and do my PS2 fitness eval today, and things will be accomplished. Lots of thunder, but no rain here — so maybe tennis later. Definitely more work to do tonight, but there will also be spaghetti dinner AND the season two premier of Rescue Me.

Oh, and… looks like they’re working on our apartment gates, so hope all ye souls have their keycards or remotes with them.
