So the stuff I've been working on so hard for the last few months is finally live. It's the new ecommerce system at There are still some bugs and performance issues, and I find some of the page flows annoying, but it's there. The bad news is, I got laid off. This is neither surprising (the consulting market is dead) nor a big disappointment (my plan was to start looking for a new job when I got back from Mexico, anyway). Such is life, at least I'll be able to catch up on my blogging.
