I was going so well with regular blogging – even if it was just posting photos.
… and then I got caught up with the building of my new website (I won’t link to it yet – it’s not quite ready for launch).
The problem with developing a complex website where there is a lot of programming involved (and this new site has a LOT of programming) … I tend to get into the “zone” and everything else gets ignored. People who have done a lot of programming work should know what I mean.
Because this system is so complicated, it reqiures a high degree of concentration to keep track of all the bits and to make sure that changes I make to one part aren’t going to affect another part (although I’ve been re-architecting the system to make it more extensible, so this should become less of a problem going forwards). Either way, I generally ignore emails and other distractions – and I can’t program and scan photos at the same time (like I can if I’m working on other less mentally demanding things!)
Anyway, the first (beta) release of my site is almost ready to go live, but I’m a bit burned out after a very late night (early morning ??) redesigning part of the programming last night, so I’ve decided to take it easy and do some less demanding things like play with my blogs and photo gallery (and fire up the scanner to do a few more rolls of film from my parents’ slide collection).
I’ll get some new stuff posted shortly.
