The following occurred over the phone when a client had a minor issue with the site I built for him.
Client: Hi, the margin between the logo and the content is wrong. Can you simply change it while I’m on the phone?
Me: Sure. Did you want the margin to be bigger or smaller?
Client: Can you increase it about by 50%?
Me: Sure. How’s that?
Client: No, that’s not right. It’s too much. Can you decrease it slightly?
Me: Sure. How’s that for you?
Client: Sorry, it’s still not quite right.
After ten minutes of "a little more" and "a little less," the client tells me it’s spot on.
After they hang up, I realized that I had made a mistake. I had been viewing my local copy of the site, and they had been viewing the live version. I never once uploaded the changed file.
kamen rider gaim is the deepest, best-written, intricate, mature children’s show on the air right now and there are few series that have it’s level of depth, i don’t care who you are, you should watch kamen rider gaim if you appreciate good storytelling and if you want a live action show with urobuchi-levels of anime storytelling (gargantia, madoka, fate/zero)
the fact that the four main characters can not only be an allegory for the united states, china, japanese tradition, and modern japan, are four of the best characters on tv right now
gaim is the first show i allowed myself to have high expectations for and the first show to exceed all of my expectations and it’s so good and so important
