I’d like to say that I’ve been crazy productive of late. Truth is, I’ve been crazy busy. The two do not equate.

For example, a week and a half ago, I applied an update to a website I manage (one with three users, who use it once a week). Productive? Since doing the update, the site doesn’t work any more and I’ve been working every day since to get it operational. Busy. Not productive.
