me and my bad habits

i have noticed that i approach most of my projects like they are little fetish objects, built by and for me. that is wrong, counterproductive and frustrating in so many ways.

i spent a good deal of today being petulant and cranky about a requirement for a project that prevented me from building a site in the way that i would have preferred. the question is : what friggin' difference does it make?

in some ways the way i want do it is limited, in that it results in a site that is built to work in more modern browsers, IE 5.5 and newer. the code is 'nicer' but the end result is largely the same as the site that i am going to build, the one full of html hacks, transparent shims and all kinds of silly tricks i thought i had 'outgrown', but works in really old browsers. but it won't validate. how much does that really matter?

i don't know

on a completely different note : here is a sequential set of pictures i took on a lunchtime walk from paul's apartment to the chipotle downtown.


  • there is something beautiful and innocently romantic about image number 56 (the fire department shiny nobs).
