This morning I’ve been cleaning up some CSS code for a redesign of some web pages.
Last week I got it working in rough, today I was cleaning it up. Giving classes proper names rather than things like “navTest”.
Except that somewhere between 09:30 and 12:30 I managed also to break something else. Another part of the page. A part that had nothing to do with the navigation that I was working on.
Just as well that doesn’t happen in the real world.
Dave the builder: Yeah!
Foreman: Did you just put in a new staircase on the third floor?
Dave the builder: Yeah, why?
Foreman: Because for some reason all the window frames on the ground floor have fallen out.
Dave the builder: Well, put them back in.
Foreman: I would, but they’re now the wrong size: they’re about 4 cm too wide now … and I think it’s your new staircase that’s affected them.
Time to put my debug hat on again.
