Has it been that long since I've posted here? Wow! Been busy.
Received word that the project I worked on for so long last year is good enough, but the person in charge is moving on to another position and taking it with him. Then he contacted me and asked if I'd be interested in working with him on an expanded version - I said "Yes." He gave me the details. It'll involved more work, more pages, more databases and, of course, more time, but a longer deadline. I also won't see any payment until at least September, but I can deal with that - I'll do the work, but withhold the files. I'll have more responsibility for the successful completion of it, but that's fine with me. Negotiating the contract as I speak.
In the meantime the new spreadsheets are being developed, the new databases are set, forms made, all that good stuff. Total length of time will be at least 1-1/2 years, and I won't take any new work on until it's close to completion. The good news is there'll be less outside interference on this one.
In the meantime, everything else I've been working on has been more or less on hold. It's important to me that everything be at least 99% right from the start, as it'll save time later.
Back to the mines.....
