I am guilty of constantly telling my girlfriend, “Hold on, just a few more minutes!” and before I know it, hours have passed. Here are some of the reasons this happens and what I may possibly be able to do about it (I guess this article could also be called “10 Ways I Can Save My Relationship”).

An oldie, but a goodie, and I’m throwing it up here because I’m about to undergo several pretty large redesign projects. This is a great article that covers the bases on what you should do when getting ready to do the big re-haul of a site. It also gives some good examples!
