Lemonade . . .

I spent most of the day at work working on our paper catalog, trying to correct a lot of problems left by my predecessor.

In going through the catalog I found 5 or 6 blank pages scattered through the book. Since they still had page numbers I assumed that products had been deleted, leaving the blank pages.

At first I couldn’t figure out why he would leave the blank pages since InDesign automagically repaginates when you add or delete pages. So that shouldn’t be a problem.

But after checking a few other things I saw the problem. When the previous guy set up the catalog, he failed to set up Index to also auto-update. Which means that as you delete pages the pages behind that page to change page numbers.

When means the Index would no longer be correct. At this point I don’t know if I can convert the Index to auto-update or not. So in the meantime, I converted the blank pages to page-size ads for specific products we have on sale.

Making lemons into lemonade.

A few weeks ago I mentioned that if you had bought $100 of Bitcoins in 2010, it would then be worth $72 million. That was when Bitcoin was worth $6000. So today when it peaked out at a little over $11000, your $100 investment jumped to about $130 million.

You can never find a time machine when you need one.

Looks like USPS is slowing down with the Christmas rush. I had two packages that were supposed to be delivered on Monday, but according Tracking Details there were just sitting in the local PO.

Then they finally showed up on Tuesday, but I didn’t get the text message that they’d actually been delivered until this afternoon. That’s the first time in a long time that Amazon Prime has missed a Two Day Delivery.

Since our pre-Thanksgiving dinner last Wednesday was aborted by our bad tire experience, we’re doing the post Turkey Day thing tomorrow night at Cheddar’s.

Really looking forward to it.

  1. Amazon is really slipping lately. We made a single order and they broke it into three. The first arrived Four Days late. The second was unannounced, yesterday and the third is now two days late. Hope it gets here soon as we are heading out on Saturday.

    Glad you know how to set up a catalog. Have Fun!

    Be Safe and Enjoy your make-up Thanksgiving Dinner.

    It’s about time.

      In our case it wasn’t Amazon’s fault. According to the Tracking Details the package sat in the local PO two miles away for two days before they finally got around to delivering it.

      Thanks for reading our blog. We appreciate your comments.
