Damn

I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. Yesterday was a blast, and I’ve got a ton of pictures from this apartment near the lake. I’m looking to update tonight. Didn’t get around to updating the blog beacuse I got home pretty exhausted. And by pretty exhausted, I mean pretty drunk. :|

Back

Got back into Chicago around 6:30 PM, Chicago time. Twice, on the drive back, I had to pull over at a rest area and get a brief nap in. Thought I got somewhat caught up on my sleep, but apparently not. This has been a lot of driving, in two days. Took me roughly 7 hours or so to get…

Wandering

I didn’t get done with other things at work until around noon. I took off and, thinking about my trip to Columbus today (err.. tomorrow), I stopped in at Artisan to buy some cheese. Daniel let me taste one that I liked a lot (called Zamorano – a cheese from Spain, made from sheep’s milk). I’ve never purchased a lot…

Summer Jam

Incidentally, this is what I was working on for a good while. Ben’s design, my Flash. Oh, and one of the coolest things is that all the artist areas are driven by XML (as are the sponsors, sorta). One of the tricker requirements this time around with this microsite was that they wanted the ability to update things on the…

At the time, there were several cases of Budweiser around (radio promotional stuff). After working a full 24+ hours, we decided we were due some compensation… so we…

Technically, it’s now Saturday AM

Got some sleep for the first time since my last entry. Writing in a few notes before I take off for another weekend of fun. Ben and I pulled another all-nighter. Justin stayed working pretty late on his own stuff, and left around 1 AM. Before things got too late though (around 9 PM), we all ordered some sushi. In…

Closure

Saw this going up the steps to the train. I want to say they hatched, but it just doesn’t look like it. For those of you who don’t remember, here’s the first time I noticed this.

Booyeah!

Right now, it’s closing on 9 AM, and I just got out of the shower. I was getting dressed for work (running late) and wanted to look at my .fla files again. Woohoo! I set a few layers as guides to try to isolate the slowness problem, and I do believe I’ve discovered the cause! All this, and I haven’t…

Actually

I didn’t end up hitting that beer. A few hours of setting things up and I snagged about 3 hours of sleep last night. One gallery is working, but it crawls like a monster for some reason Not sure why.

1:00 AM: Fuck It

Still have a lot of ActionScript to do, to wire up this photo gallery. I’ve done an XML-driven gallery before, many times, but this is my first go at one that allows for multiple galleries. Going to open a beer. Fuck it.
