Writing, Bike, Etc.

On the writing front, I seem to have lost momentum via the day lost to the dead logic board in my Mac Mini. That’s kinda sucky, but I’m going to force myself to sit in front of the ‘ol text editing program for an hour tomorrow — either I’ll write, or I’ll waste an hour. One or the other.

On the bike side of things, Zipp finally got my wheels back to me. Only one minor issue — a dust seal on the cassette hub body was folded over onto itself, exposing the internals — and I was able to correct that in less than five minutes with a pair of 5mm allen wrenches and a dental pick. Tonight, I’m going to scrub the cassette clean before I re-install it, and get everything back on the Salsa. It looks awfully sad, hanging in the living room with no wheels.

The other project I need to get underway is the overhaul of the Fontosaurus website. I’m going to take the existing design, turn it into a WordPress template, and run an e-commerce engine on it that’s capable of handling digital downloads. Seems like the better choice than floundering around, beating my head against Ruby on Rails for any more time than it’s already taken. Part of the push for this is that I’ve really started to dig into the 3000-glyph font project that I’ve been working on. I think I have a marketable design, so I want to get it out there ASAP.

What’s new with you, Internets?
