Nice, cool crunching weather in the upper Midwest. The cool air is bringing in a win!

As we in South Africa are heading for warmer weather. :)
Winning!

Now if only all of your 'clients' paid like that!!


I can only wish I had clients.


Are you SURE...'clients' means working for yourself and then getting paid on a VERY infrequent basis. Sometimes they pay right away, sometimes they pay 'later', and 'later' could mean 3 or 4 months down the road while YOU keep providing your services essentially for free!

I mostly worked for someone else when I was working, I am now retired, but did do some pc work on my own for others that mostly paid me on time. But it was frustrating when I would put in 6 hours of work and they would say 'thanks but I don't have any money this week I will catch you next month', I say 'okay' but inside am saying 'arrrgh!!'

A pretty accurate comment!

Winning.

For various reasons I haven't been playing for quite a while, but I'm here again! Probably not that often yet, but at least I'm here! :)


Hope to hear from you again, soon.


Soon enough?


Kinda sorta, yeah!!


And once again


Wow, you are going for a record!!![/quote]

I said that to a client recently. I emailed my invoice to him and seven minutes later I got an sms from his back that payment had been made! (It was available in my account the next day)
I think I'm definitely winning.

Winning after working on a slower race Saturday - Two Oceans Marathon :D


Like watching snails race, I used to jog and thought about upping it to marathons but decided it took too much time and energy. I was in my late 20's and other things on my mind!


It's also like watching paint dry, but at least with paint watching you can get high on the fumes!


That's good!!!


Wow, that was a long win!


Oh I can't win I started this thing, I am just waiting for others to jump in and WIN!!

JUMP
Like that?

Congratulations mikey!

Happy Birthday Odd-Rod!

Thanks!
And thanks for the nice F1 info, mikey.


No problem, btw that was a LOOOONG win!!!


I needed it, since I couldn't post here! I had set No New Work while I was favouring some other projects. I didn't realise I had done that for so long!

Winning again!


It's not a problem! I too have set my pc's to NNT here as I am too close to passing my teammate. I have to wait for him to crunch some more so I can then do some more.

Winning again!

Been a bit quiet lately.

Perhaps I should mention that a win on this thread is imminent?
Post often!


I have been patiently waiting everyone else is just taking a break though.

You don't have very long to wait...

The rule was, the last person to have posted when I check this thread on my birthday! So happy birthday to me, and happy WIN to you.

Enjoy the win, and start the new one :)

Woo Hoo and oh poop!! I am glad your daughters car was an easy fix, but your wifes car does seem a bit more troublesome, and now the phone problems!! Is the phone how they contact you for your next jobs? If so get it fixed first, it pays for all the other fixes.


Yes it is. Instead of looking at my wife's car I dug out my old phone and carefully positioned the micro-sim to work in the mini-sim slot! It worked, so I was at least contactable.
The next morning I put the battery back in my S3 and was extremely happy to see it worked again! Although settings had reset, including the clock, but that's a minor inconvenience!

So definitely winning, although I have to look at the car tomorrow - er make that later today! It's 03:28 here :(

Hey, sorry I haven't been here for a while. I was away for 5 days, home for 2, then 5 days again. With my wife AND daughter's cars going faulty I've been busy since I got back.

Then of course I just read all the posts...


Welcome back, I figured w*&k had dragged you away again. I hope the cars are okay now.

My daughter's car was nothing more than a loose battery terminal :)
Wife's car was a split radiator hose. Bought one at a reasonable price, got home and found it was the wrong one. My car has a different engine to what the guy thought. Got full refund for it, but the correct hose, which is only about 5cm/2inches longer, cost just over double the the other one!
But when I started car it ran very rough, like firing on only 2 of the 4 cylinders. Could barely make the car go! But my phone failed today, so the time spent re-enabling an old phone was the time I was going to look at the car :(
