All the ads are placed, and the copy is on the pages, sans updates and formatting. Fourteen advertisers either failed to turn in ads altogether or submitted completely unusable materials, which works out to roughly 10 percent. Usually it’s closer to 25 or 30 percent (or worse), so we’re making progress.

Twenty-five hours into the project, I’ve dropped only one f-bomb, which by my standards is pretty impressive. I even managed to squeeze in five hours’ sleep, lunch out with Ron, a couple of errands, and some puppy time, so we should be in good shape.

This would probably be a good time to back up the whole thing to iDisk….
