In a sense, working on the website is more difficult now than when I did the original version. Back then I had no real experience with design. I wanted the thing to look good, sure, but I was satisfied with a semi-decent amateur effort. These days I create book covers for a living. I'm supposed to know what I'm doing. So now, of course, it has to be perfect.

Anyway, I think I've finally gotten myself past the it-has-to-be-perfect stage. The mockup of the home page is almost done. Almost. Just as I was about to declare it complete and move on, I realized that there was a problem.

- NID advocacy
You've figured out that NID stands for neuroimmune disease because of the context, but no one else will know.
