Comforting a daughter with chicken pox, while abusing a perfectly good page with disgraceful hacks to make IE6 render it sensibly, and trying to digest the 400 page tedious behemoth of WCAG 2 documents really really gets a man down. Only disco dancing can help me now…

Update: Actually, it turns out I’ve got another three weeks to finish the WCAG 2 reading. The deadline for comments has been extended by three weeks to Thursday 22 June 2006.

I came across a self-help book entitled ‘Live each day as if it’s your last’ the other day. Sounds like the sort of thing you’d need after reading WCAG 2.
