Wildly busy this week. I'm revamping Inkspot to accomodate banner advertising. A year ago I would have thought it way too obnoxious to put a bunch of banner ads on my pages; now I am just desperate for the income so I can continue my net addict work. :-) CALLING ALL HTML GURUS: I've encountered an odd HTML glitch, though...on every page (with the new layout) except the main page, there is a small unloaded gif just to the left of the right-hand advertising bar, halfway down. I use a 1x1 clear gif for spacing purposes throughout the page, so I know it's one of those, but I'm not sure why it's not loading (and why it IS loading on the main page...I use the same server side include header/footers). Any help appreciated!

Had lunch with my friend Cathy yesterday and we finally exchanged our xmas gifts (perhaps they should have been called New Year's gifts). Got a cool frame made by a local artist...haven't decided what to put in it yet.
Rand & Tanya are visiting from Buffalo today. Allison and Jodi will be coming downtown so we can all hang out together (eat sushi, discuss Confusion playlist stuff, eat chocolate, etc. etc.). This morning I was horrified to realize that our little artificial Christmas tree was still on the piano, so I hurriedly stuffed it in my closet where it will probably remain until just before NEXT Christmas. :-)
