For the past 6 months, I've been slowly reducing the amount of clients I've been working with, and slowly ramping up the amount of stuff I produce for myself. If there is one tip I could give people in my position - that is, people who want to become self-sufficent, and truely be there own boss - and thats JUST SHIP IT.

Everything was awesome until I hit this:
Build complete. Tip: built files are meant to be served over an HTTP server. Opening index.html over file:// won't work.
Bugger! Don't worry - I found the issue, and have a really quick fix!

Recently, I've been wondering how developers stress test web systems after needing to stress test a system myself. My requirements, I thought, were not that unique:
- Be able to record "user stories(?)" so the system can be tested under realistic conditions
- Be able to be scaled up to a specific amount of "users"
- Report page load times, which can be corroborated to other analytics such as server render time
It wasn't simple, and I've ended up rolling my own!

Today has been a fun day - I've managed to really get a great deal done! The previous two days were productive as I managed to get a basic prototype built out (you can view that here) but I needed to get an actual design actually designed and made, as well as start looking at how I was going to manage users.
Its amazing how much you can get done in 8 hours - from a drawing to working code!
