Typography in Design Systems (rebound)

IE6, sorry it's just not working out
With IE8 on the verge of release in the next month or two, I'm probably not the only developer in the world who can't help but think this may actually be the beginning of something good. There'll (hopefully) be a lot less headaches and fewer wasted hours fixing CSS problems.
Struggling with motivation...
How do you stay motivated and focused in a world of distraction? I'm teeming with inspiration and ideas but I can't seem to rustle up the energy to start bringing the ideas into fruition. After getting home from work and eating food, my brain starts to shut down. Does anyone
