Weekly Roundup, migraine edition

I've spent most of the past two weeks hiding in a dark room pretending my head doesn't exist, which is... not exactly conducive to making shinies. The recovery from COVID-19 continues to kick my backside - I can normally work through all but the absolute worst migraines, but I'm having more double vision than usual and my lungs are still a mess, and the combination just keeps flattening me. GOOD TIMES, GOOD TIMES.

spring cleaning sale! also assorted update

So... yeah. Still working on the whole "trying to get back to normal after COVID-19" thing, and, uh... I'm getting better at being realistic about how much I can't do, at least? A few days ago I came to the very disconcerting realization that this is actually taking longer and affecting me significantly more than recovering from brain surgery did, so that put things in perspective a little.

Status report: all systems finally normal!

Three weeks to the day after I woke up with no sense of taste or smell, things finally feel normal around hereI triaged my shipping queue on Sunday and most pending orders went out yesterday, with the rest going out this afternoon; from here on out I expect shipping to be more or less normal and new shinies should start showing up tomorrow or maybe even later today if I drink enough coffee.

Status Report: on the mend?

I have now managed to go 36 hours without my fever returning! Halfway to freedom! This is very exciting and hopefully I haven't just jinxed myself.

I've also managed to get most of the website sorted out, and have support tickets in for a couple of things that I haven't been able to get working properly, so that's progress...

Website redesign!

Since I'm still spiking a fever at least once a day and can't go back to work yet, I needed to do SOMETHING, and... apparently that something was completely redoing the website? I figured this this is probably as good a time as I'm ever going to have to intentionally break things, since it's not like I'm seeing a ton of traffic at the moment.

Status Report: nope, still not working

So I'm mostly recovered from the plague! This is excellent! Or it would be, if not for the fact that I kept thinking I was fine and then I'd take my temperature and the low-grade fever would be back, and then I'd say bad words and grumpily add another 72 hours onto how long it would be before I could even consider going back to work. Apparently this is a fun feature of the very end of mild COVID-19 cases?

Status Report: still not working

Remember how I very optimistically said maybe I'd work on writing tutorials or overhauling the website last week? Uh, yeah, I wildly overestimated my ability to function while fighting off the plague. Basically, I spent an entire week just... being flat, and occasionally being able to focus long enough to read or talk to people.
