I.T. work and delusional customer requests

Sometimes people make some wild requests and get mad at you when you try and be rational with them.

Weird request:
customer: Yeah I want a computer that is a computer but not a computer but not a tablet because I don’t like them and I have enough laptops.
Me: I believe I am capable of providing you with what you require can you give a bit more detail?
customer: Sure. I want a computer that is there but you don’t see it and it able to do everything I need.
Me: Sure we can hide your computer like in a closet or something. What types of duties will this computer do that you need done?
customer: Everything.
Me: that sounds like you are very busy. Let me pass this on to our builders and I will get back to you with a quote.

Never call them back.

Email request
customer: I want my email to synch with everything.
Me: Everything? like what?
customer: Everything. and I want everything on my website to synch with my cell phone
Me: well that would be quite stressful on your battery
customer: So you are saying you can’t do it?
Me: no not saying that at all. Can you give me a list of things on your website you want to synch with your phone? I can start an RSS feed for you right away
customer: you know, the office alarm, excell,photoshop. Things of that nature
Me: you have photoshop on your website? That is quite impressive. How big is your phone???

Website request
customer: I want Microsoft exchange type service but not Microsoft exchange because it is too costly
Me: well there are plenty of open source solutions that should be less costly. What features in particular are you looking for?
customer: All of them. I want my calendar to sync with my phone email and my contacts to sync with my phone contacts
Me: well you don’t want your phone and email contacts to sync because that would be a lot of names to weed through
customer: oh so you’re saying you can’t do it? XXX company could do it.
me: well that’s not what I said sure I’ll get started right away.
several days later
customer: Hey why are there so many contacts in my phone now?

Virus Hunter
Me: I’ve had to disable your email from the server end while I scan your computer and the server to find out why you keep sending out so many email
customer: That’s fine, I will just send emails from my phone
Me: Well no, your account is disabled.
customer: I never gave you access to my phone, so I can still use it right? There shouldn’t be a virus on it, it’s an iPhone and I only surf using Chrome.
Me: Well that sounds safe enough…..

Every issue ever
customer: This never happens, I’m careful.

Password Persuasion
(over the phone)
Customer: Hey I.T. IT!!! HEY IT!! What did you change my password to?
Me: PassWord1 P is capitalized W is capitalized.
Customer: ok hang on the phone while I check
Me: That’s your password. it has no choice but to work
Customer: p-a-s-s-w-o-r-d-1-P-W
Me: no….. Hang on… I’m on my way…..

How a designer deals with a lay off

How do I deal a lay off?

I guess I just post about what I can do and what I have to offer. As any resourceful person would do, they market their skills. Cut out the boss and charge below average fees.

such as fire alarm Templates for sale
As you scroll down the page you will see there are plenty of fire alarm blocks for sale. The more there is in the item, the more the cost. If you consider how much you charge an hour, how long it would take you to build the exact same thing and how often you can reuse the blocks, the prices are better than fair. I see no one else offering what I have built over the past 5 years, so I am offering this to the public.

And webdesign
I offer Building of websites, search engine optimization for existing websites and classified ads listings.
For the record, I built the website that has been holding the number one spot in Houston for “Houston Fire Alarm” in Google searches for the past 5 years. and I will have you know that in the beginning, Google was refusing that website because the last web site designer there used bad measures to get seen.

I have built websites for bands, for packaging companies, video gamers, news sites,shelving companies, hair salons, tactical gear sites and shirt designer and lots more. There isn’t a large list of companies that will stump me on website design.

If you are in Houston or anywhere in Texas and need someone to draw up a fire alarm system, message me below. We’ll work something out.

Yet another way to make money online

Yet another way to make money online

In these tough troubled times, we find our-self looking to make money morally even if it’s in small bits here and small bits there and cash em all in at the same time to make something. So here, Here is everything I do to make money on the internet. I hope it helps everyone. ALL for free.

How I make money online. Free information for you.

I myself run a few stores online.

They don’t make me a whole bunch of money, but teh way I try and get traffic to them, If I make real legit websites that I take care of and write content related to the products, onto the websites and keep them fresh with brand new ideas and topics.

I don’t focus on the products at all, while writing my content. My content is related to the domain name and when I have an idea or a rant or a praise about a certain topic, I figure what site it is most related to and begin writing. Also I have had these sites much longer than I have had the stores or the products, so my products are more like an enhancement for my site. But you can see how the products can relate if history had been opposite right?

I mean if you are selling peanut butter as your product, you don’t want to go and create a website about nuclear waste and all of teh wonderful re-uses of the material. Do you?

so let’s say you have a product but no idea how to get started with anything. Go start a website, and use it for taking personal notes that you share with the world as you learn more about this product you are wanting to sell.

When you get your first one out and ready to be marketed, put a picture of it up on your website and describe all that you went through and tell the readers how the heck they can get one. It’s pretty easy. And if you really like your product, then you should be able to talk about it all day. you know your friends are tired of you trying to shovel your knowledge of what ever in the heck that is. Put it on the web where the enthusiasts can find it.

How? here is how I got started Making money online with an online store.

My method is not for the super enthusiast, it’s more for the guy that just wants a few extra bucks in his leisure. but the same method can be used to do something on a larger scale. Nothing to buy from me at all. i just tell you what all I did. and that’s pretty much what you read up there in the previous paragraphs. I killed time after work, I killed time on weekends when i had no money to go anywhere or do anything. I did this stuff while I was out of work and when I got a job in a gas station. It’s all a bunch of nothing. All of those weird places that sell you stuff or a cd or a book and tell you about making millions in the first year, BS. In today’s tough times, if they aren’t robbing a bank yet making money, then they work for the federal reserve, or they are ripping someone off. Probably the people who buy their get rich quick schemes.

Sorry but all I have is a slow natural process that is fine with all search engines. Doesn’t trick the system or scam any ads companies into anything. You just deliver the content you say you deliver, and show your people how honorable you are by showing them how you make it.

No one should ever trust a chef with a secret sauce…. No telling how long he had to dig in his nose for the right seasoning.

No, this will not make you rich, but your income will grow and it takes a long time, but it works and will have modest growth.
