(octoberdreaming, my new server has an automated system for doing so, but I found some instructions for creating a htaccess file that *didn't* work on my old server... try a google search for password protect htaccess. I dunno if it'll work at your site)
... and I got a good solid start on building the individual artist-contract-login page thingies. Each page is going to have all of their designs listed on it, and all of their contact information and payment methods, and a form to make changes. It will be muuuuch easier to keep a handle on records this way, and it lays a bit of the burden of making sure their information is accurate on the artist. (Besides, it makes it very, very easy for them to check and see what information I have, in case they can't remember if they told me about some info change...)
I also got my list of artists updated to include the artists for the mermaid coloring book, so I can get that up asap, too. (I haven't rebuilt all the pages so that it shows up yet, but that's coming... the artist-login pages have all the *new* site information on them, with the new search categories and hard-linked product pages and such.) Also got three orders out, cleaned up a bunch of stuff, installed a doorknob (we have a front doorknob now!! One that turns and latches and stuff!!), and watched some brainless television while writing Kaz stories on my Palm. Also packed up my swim bag so I could shower this morning at DOT. Packed pretty clothes, no less... velvety lace up bodice over flowy white shirt over long fuzzy-lacey broomstick kinda skirt. Left my hairstick at the shower this morning. *smacks head* Gunna be bummed if it's gone, as it's a very cool hairstick with dangly wooden beads and seeds that clink when I turn my head.
Huh. *reads back* I was feeling sort of crummy for not getting contracts done yesterday, but that's a pretty respectable list of accomplishments...
It would just be much nicer to be already finished with some of this stuff.... *grumbles*
