    I still remember when I was a kid my Dad asking me after I completed my homework …”Is this worthy enough to have your name on it?” Urghh! it seemed I always went back to make it better…that wasn’t easy until it one day just became the norm.

    Jshephard, sounds like a wise question from your dad!

    We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, does not become an act, but a habit.
    -Aristotle-

    And, therefore, a corrolary would, perhaps, be that non-excellence (sloppiness?) becomes the same thing.

    Mark, off topic, but you probably want to get your dev guy to update the shareaholic plugin – that’s what I’m guessing is causing the bulletpoints down the screen.

    Justin, thanks for letting me know. We updated the plugin last Friday, so it should be okay now. Thanks for noticing!
