One day, my boss said to me, “Hey Joe, are you busy?”


So this morning I get into work, and I’m setting up everything, feeling a bit better after being ill for a few days, and my manager comes over. I was informed that last Friday there was a decision that might result in some of the people on the project moving to new projects. This news causes me to freak out – the people that will be moved are my escalation points. As a support person there will be times I will encounter an issue I’ve never seen before, my escalation points are the developers who built the system.

Apparently I will have two weeks to gain equal knowledge of two systems to the developers. What do you think my chances are?

Wedding Dress Ideas


I’m currently leaning towards having a Victorian Ball Gown (Gothic Style, but cream/gold colouring). I’ve done a bit of searching for more ideas so I’m going to post links to some I’ve liked. I think I’ll need to get a training corset soon if I want to be able to be comfortable for me wedding while wearing a corset.

Goth Fairy Bride (minus the wings)

Belle (Beauty and the Beast Inspired)(only the skirt part, the bodice wouldn’t suit me)

There are many available on Gothic Wedding Dresses that I really like, especially the following:

I still have to finish looking through that site.

Also what do you think, mini top hat? tiara? vale? Hair up? Hair down? If any of my bridesmaids see this HELP.

Stock Images


The number of times you are putting together a mock up, or designing a website etc for a uni course and you just NEED some graphics, images that you can legally use for free in a non-commercial environment are especially handy. Official PSD provides access to photoshop files which is even more useful then stock images, this allows you (as long as you have access to Photoshop) to manipulate the images (colours etc) to conform to what you need with minimal stress, you can also contribute to the pool of content if you feel the inkling.

Colour Contrast


At work we are currently working on implementing a site redesign that was conducted by a 3rd party usability house. I’m working on testing the functionality changes to the site however I noticed that the text on the home page was difficult to read. The text colour had been changed to a light blue colour on a white background. I was concerned about the contrast level so I checked the brightness and colour difference to detect the level of contrast (see link below), it failed on all four tests. What are these people  being paid for if they, as usability ‘experts’, don’t understand a simple concept such as colour contrast *facepalm*.
