or at least that’s apparently how a workmate explained thunder to his very young child….heh. Poor kid is going to be diving under a desk any time the weather turns bad…(you don’t even want to know about the explanation for hail)
Anyway, that was completely irrellevant and has nothing to do with what I […]
between the fact that I’ve been pretty much up to my neck in web application stuff at work lately (usually I do the business logic side of things, but for this project I’m doing the lot), and I just spent the entire weekend working on the new CSFG website, I’m pretty much living and breathing […]
