1 Damn Percent

I’m just about ready for a new release of Granny Squares. I did all my tests and development, merged with the master branch, and ran my tests again.

And one failed.

A trivial case–ensure that there’s one instance of the form in the formset on the main page of the site.

It certainly works. But the response object’s context is None, even though the content, status code, etc., are on point.

New Gig: March 19th

With my contract at Big Corp coming to a natural close (they’re shutting down the site completely), I hopped back into the job market back in mid-February and landed myself a sweet position at Mid-Corp.

The Charon Sheet: A Facelift

The homepage after the early 2012 redesign.About damn time, really.

The old site was brown and more brown, combined with a ginormous font file resulting in some terrible behavior.

I shall say no more. Those dark times are past.

I’ve been working on the redesign for a while, and I hate that it took so long, but I’m pretty happy with the results. Still kept the dark feel, but moved away from the monochrome look.
