I just had a fun day. For some value of fun, at least. I spent most of the day fighting with CMSs for the Narrows Center for the Arts, which is considering moving away from their antiquated website that some guy hacked together for them. I mean, not that tables-based layouts aren't still cool and all. Oh wait, they're not. So I was playing with Joomla and Drupal to see if I could cobble together something slightly less ugly.

Hello valiant readers. It's that time again. I've grown bored of what I had and moved on to something new.

So you, kind reader, will have to forgive me if I seem a little bit disillusioned about the entire process. Nonetheless, here I am. I thought that I'd again join the ranks of the "bloggers".
