Who turned out the lights?

The clock change means that it gets dark even earlier. Lucky for me, I have a light at my desk.
* Some good progress on MFIC/Zoomify interface. Almost ready to set up annotation.
* Processed ICCIE/IBM.
* Checked on OASys request – client may have found a solution already.
* MMG support, modified link for 1st case.
First solid development day in what feels like a while (no meetings all day!). Have you set your clocks? A day after the switch and I still haven’t changed all mine.

Are you ready for some football?

A few pre-game tasks this weekend:
* Made changes to MMG application, adding delete/reset option and fixing case listing urls to point to the html embedded swf instead of the raw swf.
* Submitted a support request yesterday for unresponsive CONTENTdm server yeilded a quick response and an even quicker solution (have you thanked your sysadmin lately?)
Patriots barely pulled it out for the win against the Colts today. Will they go 16-0?
