Day 339

It was already dark before I found the time to run to Central Market and pick up something for dinner. I was hungry too, because today was such a madhouse that I skipped breakfast and lunch. Even though I got off to an early start with a sunrise walk for Dot and Dash, I'm still not finished with everything I need to do. Tomorrow is the first of three Santa Paws photo shoots for Dalmatian Rescue and I've got to finish packing three large duffel bags filled with backdrops and lighting gear before I go to bed.

I did manage to get quite a bit of website work taken care of today. I had a meeting with my watchmaker client this morning and was also able to get one of Janet's watches fixed while I was there. The watchmaker's website will be the last of my new projects to launch this year and hopefully well be able to bring everything online within the next three weeks. Another client wanted me to change the look of their website Google map and I don't think I did a very good job of explaining that I have no control over what Google or Bing choose to display on these dynamic maps. Ironically, we may have to go back to an old fashioned static JPEG map to achieve what this client is wanting.

In between various website updates, I finally figured out how to publish the Facebook donation tool for Dalmatian Rescue. In theory, this shareable, viral donation application is a fabulous way to raise money for any charity. In practice, I don't think I have enough friends on Facebook to take anything viral in the near future. I'm going to give it a try though, because Palpal is giving away $500 to the first twenty charities who can figure out effective ways to use this new app before December 15. So, if any of you happen to have received the Facebook RundRazr on your wall, it's not spam. Hopefully, it will become one more way that people can help an abandoned Dalmatian find a loving permanent home.

  1. I've sure spent a lot of time trying to convince clients that I can't control every aspect of some third party software. They just don't get it.
