...reply to an email where I asked a series of questions regarding how to hook a website I'm designing and front-end coding for a client into his ecommerce system (which, by the way, is small and therefore unknown to me but apparently also cheap and so important to my client) and he replied:

You can design the site on Squarespace if you have to.

I believe you misunderstood my question, sir. I know how to motherfucking make a motherfucking website I do it all the motherfucking time.
