Developer Rant in Miscellaneous Posted August 1, 2007 How come you didn't make the form? It seems simple enough to do... I had one experience with an outsource company the I hired...I had this one project that was really just a pain in the ass and I didn't feel like working on it anymore, plus didn't have the time so I decided to look for someone to finish it. So I put an ad up through guru.com and found a company that sounded half way decent. In the project description I clearly put "This needs to be done within 1-2 weeks at the most...please do not bid if you can not complete this within that time frame" Simple right? Well after I got half the money in escrow (that day) I sent him more detailed information and told him to let me know it he needed anything else. After a week went by I finally heard back from him and he was asking simple/dumb questions, I answered those so he could move one. 2 weeks went by, 3 weeks went by...on the 5th week of bearly hearing from him my client despirately needed this project done. So I had to stay up all night (after working a regular 9 hour day) to finish this stupid project. Needless to say he didn't get paid. moral of the story: just do it yourself, it's a lot easier, and NEVER pay anyone until you have a finished product that works like what was agreed to in the initial contract.
