I'm okay. Working a ton. We had a project dumped on us about 2 month ago, new eCommerce package. This project started well over a year ago and was suppose to be completely done by a 3rd party who is certified in the development of this new eCommerce package. Over $0.5 million spent later, we were worse off than if we would have just done it on our own. Almost nothing worked, when we took over. The stuff that did "work" didn't follow our business rules, which we discussed with the 3rd party over, and over, and over again. So we fired them 2 months ago and as soon as we did, the president of the company was in our office saying he wanted the site live yesterday. We have 3 more weeks to finish and that includes any testing we plan on doing, which we haven't started yet.... I foresee 60+ hour work weeks in the near future.


How about you Hoss?

How about you Hoss?
Do you still use aim? I'd be interested to pick your brain about webdev and whatever is new with you. I figure AIM is now outdated, but whatever works - works!

I've been really busy lately on new hobbies and enjoying some down time lately. Working on some side projects and trying to follow in our resident entrepreneur Durrell's footsteps

Hope everyone is doing well! Happy Fall!

I haven't been on AIM forever, but I can get on there.

Is anyone still alive? We need to chat sometime soon and catch up.

You guys should add me on LinkedIn.

Holy crap! I still come and check things once a day.

You're already my friend on LinkedIn.

I would love to chat, when and where?

Dunno, that's a good question. Does anyone still use IRC?

Edit:
irc.oftc.net
#spydergdt

I'll try to idle in that channel most weekdays. I work from home everyday except Wednesday, so I'm generally available during business hours. Hopefully some of you guys see this and we can catch up!

Lol shu we can't seem to catch each other. I'll try to stick around a little later tonight.

I also switched IRC clients to one that will send me an alert when you say something.
