So, I heard back from Leclerc customer service, and the good news is that I don’t have to send the box back to Leclerc. The bad news is that I have to pay by check, so it’s another three days wasted while the check is in the mail. But at least it will get fixed, and it sounds like it should be pretty easy once I have the parts. I’ve ordered two extra solenoid plungers just in case this happens again.
Meanwhile, I plan to concentrate on (a) sewing up the muslin for the jacket and (b) website design. I’ve ordered another book or two on website design from Amazon.com, one a classic on Web usability design, and the other on how to design websites using CSS (more focused on design, rather than the grammar of CSS). I’m also starting to write up requirements and do the wireframes for the website I’m designing. This project will take awhile, but I’m pleased by the amount I’ll learn along the way.
Life is way too short to be put out of whack by minor setbacks. Where something gets stuck, something else beckons.
