"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
I am on the brink of a dilema, I with some very use help from OriginalGriff managed to get some software out to a client. Heard nothing from them about it, so do I treat it as no news is good news or bother them ? Opions please:
Sadly there is a time difference, and they use an odd VOIP system. Plus the guy I'm dealing with is scary, email he can't hear the quiver in my voice. Not that is impossible to type nervous it's a little harder to pick up!
I guess that depends if they paid you or not
I used to work on a business intelligence product that was often bought by companies who had been told by the bank to get their finances in order. It wasn't unusual for recieving our software to be the last anyone saw of them. Our guys would call and get no repy, turn up on site and find they'd cut and run with whatever they could carry once they really understood their financial position.

2 let it be, please! Mind you that was only the exe I sent, I am still working on the installer!, my other experience as happened in the past with this very person was he didn't test the application until he was about to send it to the end user and came up with suggestions that had to be implemented (on a Friday) before 4:00 pm CET he came up with changes at 1:00 pm GMT, no early leaving that Friday!
