The earliest technical usage for jiffy was defined by Gilbert Newton Lewis (1875–1946). He proposed a unit of time called the "jiffy" which was equal to the time it takes light to travel one centimeter (approximately 33.3564 picoseconds). It has since been redefined for different measurements depending on the field of study
I worked on a contract with a local company for about 3 years. Never completed the project because they kept changing things. Always scope creep. The finally got frustrated and cancelled it about 6 months ago.
Today I get an email from the guy:
We are considering having someone do some more work with it.
You were going to send me the source code and a waiver doc for you.
Give me a call so we can discuss.
Also, what other info would another programmer need? What language is it, etc.
I take this as "You didn't do a good job and we want to restart the project, just not with you". I'm OK with that because it was a real PITA and I'm glad to be rid of them.
As far as the waiver, I asked them to sign a Release From Liability. I basically want them to not come after me if this other guy does something wrong.
Anyone have a Release From Liability template or something similar? Please don't refer me to a lawyer. I don't want to spend $300 to have him print out a form for me.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.-John Q. Adams You must accept one of two basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not alone in the universe. And either way, the implications are staggering.-Wernher von Braun Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.-Albert Einstein
