Time Management!?

I have too many things I need to do, and I’ve got no time to do ’em all. I’ve had so many late nights in the past week, it’s not even funny. Didn’t even have a chance to check my email until 11am today! I stayed up last night working on helping the Outlook team, but I still have a few more things I need to tweak in this site’s template. As I mentioned in last night’s report, I just got the Gateway computer – so I spent most of my time on the Vista laptop while waiting for files to copy from one machine to the other. I’ve gotta get everything set up for me on the new machine, knowing that I’ll be getting an even newer one soon enough (AMD-based, likely an FX-60). Time Mangement? I don’t need management, I just need more time to do the things I’ve gotta do. It’ll be another late night tonight as well – with the weekend coming up (promising to be filled with an even heavier workload). My emails are stacking up, too; if you sent me a note in the past day or so, don’t expect a response until I can get Outlook 2000 up and running again later this afternoon after I do a hit on on10. Oh, and… I wouldn’t even consider using IE7 on Vista. It’s Firefox until I can copy over my copy of Maxthon. When I get time… when I find time…

IE Makes it Impossible to Troubleshoot Feeds

This morning, a subscriber notified us that one of our master feeds was broken. I loaded ‘er up in IE, only to (once again) be faced with cripped pieces of feedback. Yes, the browser shows me part of the error, but doesn’t actually tell me where the error is! Without some form of context, I have to dig deeper. Screw that. I have to fire up FireFox just to learn more about a problem. IE7 better be better on the code troubleshooting front. In related news, our new forums output RSS for searches. The server is definitely being brought to its knees, but we’re getting another one in place ASAP. You want proof? You can’t handle the proof.
