F***ing storm/thunder fly crawling around inside the screen of my £600 monitor!! Driving me mad!
Yeah midges (that's what we call them this way) are a pain, just imagine having a field of wheat just outside your house (literally across road) and it's just been cut so all looking for a new home... that's where they normally live until it's basically ripe, oh the joys of the country life lol

Been lucky so far, only had one or two crawling around inside the screen but they've not died on the screen which is a bonus, I've had that happen and couldn't do anything about it, then needed to move locations and the vibrations from the car ride (it was wrapped up safely obviously) actually worked it loose lol

So in January I met with a potential client (referred by a past client) who wanted their website redesigning. They were difficult to get hold of due to always being out of the office and never returning my emails (normally a bad sign), but on the numerous times since then that I did manage to catch them, they assured me they still wanted to give me the work. I was tempted to give up the chase but I didn't want them to go with someone else.

Fast forward to today and they have gone with a company that 'specialises' in churning out sites for their industry without even giving me a chance to quote. The resulting site is a generic theme with some really bad UX and terrible content architecture. Oh well.

Potential client in India who wanted a wedding registry site. The idea being brides could select a number of worthy causes and guests could donate. They wanted a full management suite with login, payment portal, charts showing total donations, email, SMS, social media and all the other bells and whistles including UI design.

We has some good discussions and I gave a quote. It all went quiet for some months then he cam back and said they couldn't get funding so could I do the job for $900. I said no so he's going to use some Indian developers who say they can do the job for $600.
