I always complain about insurance but I have to admit that mine usually does fairly well by me. I shouldn't say this out loud of course.
I don't feel like doing anything. I should be looking at CSS manuals as I need to be able to write it efficiently once we get the server up and running. I'm good at color and type formatting but I haven't learned the intricacies of spatial arrangement yet. or every time I do try to arrange a page, each browser displays a different error.
I know CSS has revolutionized HTML markup but I have to say I was getting pretty damned good at tables when they threw that whole model of layout out the window. judging by the source of many pages there are still quite a number of websters out there still using them, but I want to be on the bleeding edge of the standard. also I understand and agree with the philosophy, so if I'm to have any net integrity I have to make the switch.
change is hard.
but yeah I don't feel like reading. I should. I should read today and take tomorrow off. I've been working pretty steadily here for several days. of course reading about the internet isn't really work insofar as I actually like doing it--do you know that berkeley freshmen have no concept of doing work you don't like? I learned this this summer when we had them read a Marcuse piece on the enslavement inhering in the free market and they had no idea why anyone would complain about having to work. oh my god are they a bunch of privileged little upper middle class brats!
ok ok I'll do a little work. will try to pretend it is play.
