    Really Dumb Conversation - must relish!

    Several minutes ago I had a pretty dumb conversation with a guy, needing some work done. I'm pretty sure that all of you have been through this, but I guess this one will delight your eyes Anyway, I removed the user's ID for the obvious purposes:

    <user's id>: Hi Lorandm - thsi is <WHT user> - I posted the <project name> job on webhostingtalk.com
    Hello
    Would you please give me more details on the project?
    <user's id>: Have you done any Flash Componants / Actionscript and do you have any examples I can see?
    please take a look at http://www.nsd.ro/
    there you'll find a few examples we did
    <user's id>: where?
    on the portfolio section
    it's mostly flash work
    <user's id>: Portfolio section is offline
    http://www.nsd.ro/, not www.minyo.biz
    <user's id>: I'll be back in 5-10 mins
    ok
    <user's id>: back
    ok
    <user's id>: so, do you have any other examples online or an swf file?
    no, that's what we uploaded so far, the rest are offline due to privacy contracts
    <user's id>: ok. do you understand the project> i played aroound with the quiz _ multiple choice componant but i"n not very good with programming actionscript and arrays and such
    Yes, I do understand what you need, but please send detailed specifications to [email protected] so everyone here would have them
    also please send the timeline of the project and budget
    <user's id>: timeline is 2 Days. Budget is $250. US paid via paypal or other means you require after the job is completed succcessfully to what we will discuss if you take it.
    Ok, please send those details to the adress I specified and I'll get back to you within 12h
    is that ok?
    <user's id>: Yes, can you tell me how you would go at it?
    What do you mean by that?
    the method of work?
    <user's id>: yes, since there are no examples of your flash work, I am curious of your method. For instance - there are two aspects - setting up a user login and the script itself. Will you be modifying the multiple Choice componant or creating something from scratch?
    everything we do is custom made, we don't use templates, nor copyrighted images
    as for the flash work, you can see the flash sites we made
    <user's id>: I can't see the flash sites - when I go to your portfolio page it says "Section offline."
    I asked you to go to www.nsd.ro, not to www.minyo.biz
    <user's id>: Am I missing the correct url - http://www.minyo.biz/portfolio.php
    yes, the correct one is www.nsd.ro, it's the old site we have the portfolio on
    it's a flash site
    so check there
    <user's id>: they are not there
    <user's id>: There is nothing to see
    <user's id>: Do yuohave any you could show me that are actually up?
    sorry, I can't work with you, I asked you to take a look NOT at Minyo Biz's site, but at NSD's site, it's the old site, just type in your browser http://www.nsd.ro/ , click on the enter site tab
    after you enter the site(which is a flash site I might add), you can click on the portfolio section, whic has several pages
    <user's id>: ?
    bye
    <user's id>: I think I might misunderstand you. Is your portfolio working right now so that I can view it?
    YES, the portfolio can be viewed at http://www.nsd.ro/
    <user's id>the section is offline at minyo biz!

    if you haven't considered chapter 7 bankruptcy, maybe you should.
    eliminate your debt, keep the property you want, most people qualify.
    contrary to popular belief - no attorney is necessary!

    Sometimes you get the smart ones. Most of the time, you don't.

    Trust me, first I was a bit pissed, then got a little mad, but in the end I was just laughing... and wondering why do such people exist Believe me, such an experience can be mindblowing and of course enlightening, I makes me feel lucky there are persons to whom I can really talk to
