No. He didn't hit anything on head. He stubbed his toe. I know what I'm paying for (because I'm the one paying for it) and I'm delighted to pay for it if it's what I'm paying for. But tell me, why should I pay $3000 for something that I can get for $300? Does that make business sense? If it does then you've never run a business.

Therefore if he doesn't appreciate what's involved in the job how would he know how to select the right firm?

Tsk. > Tsk. Tsk. nice rant. Now then - is it our fault that you picked a shop that couldn't do what you want? How did you select them, evaluate them? we're entitled to (and get) our approx $100 per hour because we have years of business experience, because we can tell clients when their ideas won't work - and suggest new ideas that will, because we turn out good quality code on time and on budget. and we're no different to hundreds - probably thousands - of development companies; if you engaged the wrong one(s), then your selection process is flawed. -- mac jordan home: www.kestrel.org work: www.webhorus.net them: www.jordan-cats.org -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt ! -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt ! --------------------------------- Do you Yahoo!?
