I know these stories are meant to be funny, but I must admit to feeling very sad and anxious when I read them because these people really are out there, around every corner waiting to ruin my day.

Kids of today will never understand or comprehend the sound as data was loaded from a cassette tape, then the look of horror when you could hear chewed tape ! argghh

Or realising that you had taped over your favourite game when you were trying to record Haysi Fantayzee off the TV during Countdown.

Google translate needs an “80’s” setting!!

If the cost is based on something predictable such as miles, then this can be done with a combination of Google Maps API autocomplete and Distance calculation.

...and not to forget the radiation that modern software itself has! Never heard of this?? This may be our biggest problem in these days!

An installation downloaded on a harddisk radiates liek crazy, even when the power is off and no wire is connected!! :P

I wanna take what you took dude! Do you have some more? :D

And don’t forget your own radiation you produce in your brain when you compose or write crazy posts. Highly dangerous!

Prost, Udo

There are many themes, plugins and scripts that use Google Maps API.

The purchasers need to make sure they are using the API as per: https://developers.google.com/maps/licensing

Which bit is he considering steep? Looks like your hourly rate is around $30 per hour, which is certainly at what I would consider the lower end of quality web design / development.

Is he querying the number of hours taken so far? You need to try to drill down into where his concern is.

I usually do all my client sites as fixed price with a very clear scope (never hourly rate) with a percentage (10% -20%) included as risk. All other fixed cost such as domain, hosting, ssl cert, stock photos, fonts, etc are added as separate items. I always take a deposit (covers the domainreg, hosting, etc) and then progress payments based on deliverable stages. Its all detailed in an agreement that we both sign on commencement. Wont help in this case, but maybe for next time.
