so i hate ASP. and i might not hate it, if i could use the tools that it’s meant to be edited with. but no. and for once, this is not a fault of management, i do have visual interdev. however the bozo who made the site, coded himself into a corner before he got fired for being a total moron, leaving me with no way of entering design view. this is no better than working on Cold Fusion with edit plus. which i also do.
you know, i might be a lot better at what i do, if i had access to these wonderful tools that all the cool kids get.
and i suppose it doesn’t help that both CF and ASP are things i learned by inheriting abandoned, broken websites written in them (i have this motto: oh, i’ve heard of that. sure i can do it!). i am philosophically opposed to integrated design environments that cost thousands of dollars (probably because i can’t have them). maybe i resent the idiots that abandoned these broken sites, for having better toys than me and *still* hosing the code. bastards.
and then i have to clean up after then, and i’ve been faking it since … well … forever. absolutely not a clue what i’m doing. my clients don’t know this, and so they are perfectly content with having sites that work, even if the person working on them doesn’t really know why.
um. are you bored all the way to tears yet? ’cause i could whine more. aw, no, i won’t. i have to get back to work. dammit.
