However, I did get a nice note from $client yesterday. (There are two consultants there, me and $other_guy.)
Date: Wed, 19 Apr 2006 21:39:30 -0400
To: ad hoc, $other_guy
Subject: a message from one of your clients..
Howdy to both of you ..
Okay should send this message more often..
Both of you .. the work that you do create, produce, and maintain is great. The apps you work on are wonderful, and you handle the bugs, revisions, change, etc. with such grace. You each have a great rapport with the staff and they respond and are pleased with the reaction and response....
Guess what I'm trying to say is that $client is soooooooo lucky to have both of you on their team even if occasionally we don't show it or express it..
As you both know our users visit and use the apps in a very different way than we 'architects/artists' do .. and you each have folded that into your skills... after all who would have figured that Ms. $end_user would become our QE.. ?
Sorry but really wanted to send this off to both of you 'cause I'm the most guilty for not letting each of you know how great $client has it and how proud I am to have both of you on my team and both as friends to boot..
I know we can be a troublesome customer .. but hey where else can you go to a client's office and not only do business but talk with friends...
And I have not had any 'grape juice' just doing lots of thinking...
That was nice to year. And yes, she should say it more often.
So, the real topic of today. When in the hell did they start stamping eggs with "Use By" dates?!?!?! Or do they come out of the chicken that way in some new genetically engineered solution to a problem no one knew existed?
