I’ve been really busy since the beginning of March. Well, I’m always busy but it seems that everyone woke up from their winter hibernation on March 1st ready to start a new project. This is great but …
A lot of the last two weeks I’ve spent WAY too much time chasing down passwords. Fortunately, I test them as soon as I receive them – I used to wait until I was ready to do the work and that ended up causing even greater delays.
The client either doesn’t understand what I mean when I say I need a ftp or cpanel login or the logins I am given are not accurate.
I don’t mind the occasional login mishap – I even sent the wrong one to a client the other day. But I’ve spent so much time the last couple of weeks getting the logins that I am almost ready to add a “chasing down logins” fee to my contracts. It’s eating up valuable time and this is time that I’m not generally getting paid for.
So, yeah, I’m getting grumpy about this.
