site redesign

Still working on the site redesign of Inkspot to accomodate banner advertising. Don't worry, no advertising on the UT site. :-)
I did some babysitting yesterday. My 8-month-old niece Annie can crawl now, but only backwards and on a hardwood floor. She gets very excited about it. While I babysat, Sara and Ruth went out to do some shopping. Sara came home with a tiny metal wind-up frog toy which she called the "jump-done" frog. I asked her why it had this name, and she said, "Because I wind him up and then he jumps, and then he's done." Makes perfect sense. CONGRATULATIONS to Mark Osier, who successfully defended his thesis yesterday! Woohoo, Doctor Mark! :-) Today I get to meet one of my "Inkspot employees" for the first time...Noah Chinn. I'm having coffee with him at Shopsy's to give him his cheque. I asked Noah to describe himself so I would recognize him when he came into the restaurant, and he sent me a JPEG. :-)
SITE OF THE DAY: Lynda's Homegurrrl Page - excellent site, if you're interested in webtechstuff at all. I've made a lot of use of the web colour resource pages lately.
