Lazy Night

Last night I had some ‘me’ time after a long day with a big headache – which meant a stimulating game of Civilization IV. I know, I know – you’re probably jealous, but please try to contain it.

Actually, I think it was 50% needing to get away from a concept I’ve been working on (the usability of ‘tabs’ and how we can design in a tab-centric world), to help things get a little clearer. Other projects I have on my “To Do” list:

  • Jersey Birding t-shirt design – just a concept I had that is coming out pretty nicely. I hope to have an example or two up on CafePress tonight
  • Design research/presentations:
    • Designing in a Tab-Centric World
    • Form Usability Guidelines
    • Usability/Accessibility Guidelines (for work)
  • Personal development projects:
    • Homepage redesign
    • Turning my lifelist page into a PHP sortable page (or even better, an XML-based Flex App; but I’d have to learn both of those first)
    • Finishing the redesign and fixes on this blog
    • Some graphic design stuff for my parent’s beach house
    • Various t-shirt designs that are half-done (and, you know, actually selling something)
  • Get ready for our trip to Texas in 3 weeks (God, I can’t wait)
  • Reply to a couple dozen emails I’ve festered on replying to (’cause I suck)

I’m fairly sure there’s a lot more on my ‘To Do’ list but that’s all I can remember right now.

  • Wow, that’s quite a list. I really like tabs. It’s what makes me love Firefox and Gaim. Of course, now IE has tabs, but you know what? It’s still IE.

    At least you’ve got a vacation on the horizon … Texas weather sounds really nice right now …

  • I like tabs, too, although sometimes they are overused and can become confusing.

    I know PHP fairly well, so let me know if you have any questions about that. In return, I might shoot some IA/Visio questions your way at some point. What say you?

    Where are you going in Texas? I used to live in Austin, and still miss it sometimes.
