Curse of the Laptop

I’ve been “work­ing” on switch­ing to WordPress and com­ing up with a nice re­design for a few months now. Working is in quotes of course, be­cause every time I open up the CSS files I im­me­di­ate­ly lose all in­ter­est in cob­bling every­thing to­geth­er with duct tape, sil­i­con caulk, spit and pi­ano wire. I health­ily place all the blame for this on my lap­top. Without a huge mon­i­tor and op­ti­cal scroll-bar three but­ton mouse and er­gonom­ic key­board, I just don’t have the pa­tience to sit on my ass in front of a com­put­er for hours. Because that is what I do at work all day. Instead I have to do ter­ri­ble things like watch Lost Tales of the Formicans at the Liminis, run a 5k, ride my new bike for a cou­ple of hours or con­sid­er get­ting my hands on some art sup­plies for no par­tic­u­lar rea­son [i can’t draw, have nev­er paint­ed and cer­tain­ly can’t af­ford met­al sculp­ture equip­ment]. Yep, it tru­ly is a shame that I keep com­ing up with bet­ter things to do than wres­tle with an er­rant <div> tag.

  1. i hear ya. I’d love to spend more time work­ing on my blog de­sign or writ­ing, but I, too, spend my day in front of a com­put­er. And lap­tops seem to en­cour­age flit­ting around the in­ter­net, not ma­jor projects.

  2. We’re work­ing on WordPress too — just new to it ac­tu­al­ly, so let us know about any great in­sights you come across, that way we won’t have to the work our­selves 😉 And thanks for the wel­come!
