    I have been getting lots of web dev spam lately, yesterday phone rings, (it's the same company's number) I answer "hey I don't want web development!" .........click the phone hangs up on me, one minute later the same number rings and I answer "do you understand english" .......... then I hang up the phone before they can, I can't wait for video calls to become common so i can see who is annoying me at the other end !!

    ----------------
    this was my client, hosting only as site was originally built by someone else, ( its a motel ) he asked me for a quote to redo the site and i said...... ummmmmmmm small site $1500, responsive, i'l give you a gallery, link to your booking platform, make a nice design, put in a gallery of local attractions........ beachs etc, contact form with google map, logo, colours, analytics, places, blog, feed to facebook, room shots, teach him how to manage the site himself and update etc.
    i really wanted to look after him as he's just purchased the motel off one of my other clients and they have been with me for over 12 yrs SO i transfered the "CRED" to them and gave them the best deal, so my other client who sold the motel knows i'm a nice guy still.
    guess that didn't work !
    he chose to go with someone else.
    Code:
    http://hicraftmotel.com.au/

    it just gets worse !!!, its the 5th of the month and the website has chewed 2gig of bandwidth !!!! , so i ring up the developer and ask why, he says, ohhh, the client is not happy with the design, we will be finished tomorrow with a new design, LOL.......MAN, i can't wait to see the new one !!!!!!!!!!
    so i have given them extra space, lets see what they do which will be what THEY consider "better "

    i was at melbouren seo meetup last night, great night , if you are able to come then DO as you'll get so much info and not just about seo.
    anyway saijo george did a talk which was great but for those who missed it he has a great site http://saijogeorge.com but because this is the "funnies" here is the reason for the post, i think its hilarious , http://saijogeorge.com/css-puns/

    http://allthefreestock.com/ , but it seems to be an affiliate links thingy. i wanted to ask him about copyright but didn't get a chance and he has no phone number on his website as i did try to find it today.
    i think everyone should be careful of "free stock" , as i recently posted we got sued for using free stock that wasn't free stock apparently.
    so here now we do not use these sites UNLESS they provide us with an invoice that says $0.00 , thats what i wan't to talk to saigo about, but we are now off topic !
    please PM me if anyone has it as i would like to clear up this question.
