So, Friday was crazee insane at work - we're creating new content for Ma$$iveClient that is supposed to go live ASAP. The guy in the office who used to do this was promoted last year and is now the project manager.

Guess who gets to create the content?

Well, to be completely accurate, I'm not writing the actual content - we have a copy writer for that - and on a side note, OMG! He's BAD! I've read Bad!Fic! that was better! We had a teleconference with him last week and dude is majorly defensive too. *shakes head* it's just so - trite! But anyway...

So I get to code it into HTML to make it fit nicely into the space we are allotted on the webpage. And it's a refreshing step back into the earl 90's let me tell you.

The online retailer we are doing this for has an excel spreadsheet that I need to enter the data into for the 600+ new products, and there are strict rules.

You can use Basic tags only - like LI, UL, BR, P, etc.

No carriage returns.
No spaces.
No CSS.

The guys in the office have complained that the architecture is positively prehistoric. Personally, I am quite happy with it - the more basic the requirements, the less likely it is I will make some horrible mistake and screw everything up. And I can just use the Try It editor from W3Schools to make sure it looks good before I drop it into the excel sheet.

I am finding this seriously cool. It will probably wear off very quickly, but for the moment - COOL!

Again, does the outfit you work for have a website? My friend is looking for a new job, and your outfit seems to treat folks right (ly).

I've sent you the link to the website before. On Facebook I think.

The Vancouver office just did a spate of hiring, about 9 people, and they're done for now. Sorry.
