Squishy Day!

The System

Today was Take your Squishy to Work Day, so I brought my Squishy to work. Here's a shot of my mini-fox hard at work:
Squishy!


Anyway, today was kind of a wasted day. I don't know why. After getting my notes together and corrected this morning about a client, I met KC at the office at 11, gave him his cards, then pretty much browsed the Internet for a few hours - mainly webcomics. Today seemed like a good day to browse the other 99% of webcomics that I had been missing from the outbound corners of the internet. I added a nice little "Favorite Webcomics" section to the blog (below the "Comments" section on the right side), which looks like this:
Favorite webcomics - in no particular order

The above webcomics are always listed in a random order, so don't think that I have a preference.

Anyway, after I got done browsing, KC finished his work on a client's site. I went in and tweaked it a bit, and it was officially classified as "Done!" so I moved the beta.php page to the index, and made a PR announcement on the Shadow Dev website.

I went back to browse some webcomics, and voted for a lot of my favorites on topwebcomics.com. So, that's it for my Wednesday. Hopefully I can be more productive tomorrow and Friday to call this week a success. 7 hours today + Mon and Tues = ~21 hours.

Wow, has it really been over a month since I posted last? It seems like yesterday that I made my last post. Since then, it's been nothing but busywork and client jobs.

Here's a comic to help relate to my previous month+ of absence:
Dilbert

I won't bore anybody with the finer details of what has happened over the past month, but here's a quick overview (just to keep you entertained):

- last week was a week of bad luck: had a co-worker's computer crash (had to re-install A LOT of software and do a full hard drive backup since the backup manager wasn't syncing everything), had the roof of an office space collapsed and spewed water and insulation all over, the co-worker had to find an old copy of Office 2007 so his SBA software would work right (OOo didn't cut it, unfortunately), prepared for a client's Open House, worked at said client's Open House, had both of our PPT and SEO seminars (which went great, with the exception that our PR got out late (again) and the first attendee showed up before we did), had a confused conversation with a current client over a chart display, had a very odd sewer smell in the office all week (turned out to be a lack of water in the drainage system; finally solved that after playing the "blame game" with the building secretary), one of the units got a fresh coat of paint which made the whole building smell odd, our first marketing order arrived (YAY!) and a client got some custom t-shirts, Tokyopop shut down their US office (not relevant, but I thought it was important news to mention), switched our DNS servers to CloudFlare which made the response rate lower dramatically and the uptime much higher, helped a client with a business plan for a competition (after having to re-write most of it), had some confusion over a potential client website and the hosting issue, finally switched over 2 clients DNS records (one had a major pain trying to get her domain from her old provider), made a video for switching over DNS records for said (and future) clients, had a mixup of payment systems for a client (although they had an invoicing system from the credit processor, they wanted another one created from us; we got a call today saying they wanted to go with the credit processor's invoicing system instead of ours, which we are okay with), said client had confusion when issuing credit to organization payers, uploaded the financial reports for the past 4 quarters to the corporate site, had some SSH and FTP issues with the server (solved?), went to a new Thai restaurant in downtown, had a large influx of followers for both my and the business's twitter accounts, got a DM from George Takei on Twitter (YAY!), and that's about it for last week.

- not much else happened in the past month, aside from getting some insurance quotes, WCU getting a new chancellor, offering remote tech support for some clients, received an email that was sent 7 months ago (talk about being lost in cyberspace), had a mis-payment of a license (which was fixed), participated in a ΠΛΦ ΩΖ initiation, had a hard communication with a client's old hosting service, attended my first MeetUp, uploaded a few videos of Niko and Chi, installed our first successful SSL certificate, got 2 new clients signed on, and worked on other client works (still have no time for other projects), wrote a few informational articles, and got a mini squishy fox!

That's about it for the past month. I'll try to be better about posting on a regular basis and not every other month.
