Updates by the pound.

What I like my clients for is not only the money they tend to forget to pay, but for all the fun I tend to have meeting their requests. By all means – I’m happy to provide the services and whatnot. What amazes me is how fast the ideas and demands are changing 🙂

Problems, problems, problems.

The real-estate web site that I have moved to a newer server suddenly started acting up. The JavaScript stopped working, but not all the JS on the whole site. Just one little piece that by not working pretty much makes half of the site useless. Moved back because of the annoyed client.

Next step – putting up a brand new web site on a brand new domain name. Plus – adding some features to ColdFusion based web store (I wish I had at least a slight idea about this damn CF thing). Plus – making next web site with the same product we just finished web site for.

Oh, and all this while searching for more clients. God, I love this life 🙂

Client on a rampage!

One of my clients for whom we are doing the web site now went on design rampage yesterday. We gave him three drafts, he chose one, we started working on them, polishing minor details, etc… Everything was fine until yesterday night I got a message from him. He said that he finally figured out what he wants and attached the draft of the web site he thinks very professional and just great.

Although I am not questioning his taste (we’re children of different times and cultures, so I think he has a great idea that I just don’t get yet), but the colors… the layout… the whole idea of professional web site that looks like pinball game… I definitely should lower my requirements to designers who want to work with me… They are great, it’s me who’s crazy…
