Some of whatever knocked me out is lingering (Waste of time in silly unconsciousness)

Tim, Selena and myself all apparently had trouble sleeping last night. I'm still feeling sort-of out of it, which could be part of the original problem or simply a reaction to the messed up sleeping schedule. Just took a quick nap that turned into 4 hours yet didn't refresh me at all.

Well, it looks very nice in Mozilla (But IE is ignoring a lot of the CSS)

Spent the bulk of the evening working on a complete rethink of the Cinemon UI. The design is definitely showing the influence of Plone.

That's a chunk of change, yes, but honestly, pulling together the courseware (which for these topics necessitated almost 2-1/2 weeks of un-billable work) means that we were just barely breaking even (though the ...

Plone tutorial sort of falls apart toward the end (Becomes much closer to point-form)

Spent the last few hours reviewing the Plone tutorial with which I'm trying to help. There's a lot of writing still to do, figure another 4 hours or so, maybe a little less. There's actually some stuff in the sample code that looks like it wants to be refined as well. Not just doc-strings (which ...
