Techy Fun: Why are things a rush only when a customer wants them to be?

September 7th, 2007 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

As I’m in the process of slowing shutting down other sites I’ve worked on (due to time constraints), I’m reposting them here. Here’s an article from “Behind The Frontline” which was going to be a cross between I Work With Fools, Worse Than Failure and Dilbert.

Category: Timewasters. Author: Web Site Submission.

We waited over *3 months* for a response from a customer over a simple issue. When they eventually decided to provide us with a response, then wanted us to jump to it and have the work done within the hour (on a weekend!).

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
