Nothing For Free

Nothing For Free

In my many years as a full-time freelancer, I've worked hard not to underestimate the value of my work and contribution to a project. Thankfully, my clients have always understood my value as well and I've never had to experience this nickle and diming drama (trauma).

I'm not a taco stand, I can't do $8.50, I don't do tests, I don't roll costs over to the next project, I can't help you out, I can't "do this", I don't need "opportunities" and I won't show you how I made it!

Warning... If you are one of these clients, I'm booked for life with other work.

Mad love to my awesome clients.

Just grabbed this screenshot from an ExpressionEngine project I'm working on. It's been up since I was 9 years old! That would be 1983 to be exact... and yes that makes me 36.

What are the odds... Two nutty database up-times in the same month.

Love this video! Great to see female coders getting a song of their own.

Coder Girl Lyrics:

to be the keys underneath her finger tips

Her class makes a brotha's back buffer wanna flip

and be number one on her link list

and get a callback, I'm in all caps

feels like my first hello world

what it is to run with a coder girl

and it ain't hard to like how she writes

with her pretty interface, plus her source is tight

wanna get in where I fit in like a plug-in

this is the true meaning of computer lovin'

She's got a data stack that's straight stunning

No mismatch, exceptions or debuggin

invariably, how would I pass this

when my coder girl grants me root access

basically, she's a certified A+

yo, it's more than just technolust


Feels like my first Hello World 'cause

She's my Coder Girl

Man, I had to dedicate this one

To my Coder Girl

I'll put it like this, so you can understand

She makes me wanna update to be a better man

When we compile she's easy to interpret

A cross-platform version I can work with

She's not wrapped in flash

all she wants is her java and a shell to bash

While, she's a sight to C, plus

Her smile glimmers just like a Ruby does

She could never be subroutine

The high priority process of my machine

Sharper than most chics ya' know

She's not another shallow copy actin' sudo

It's that good type dependancy

I function better with C.G. next to me

and it always leads to an overflow

When it's runtime and we take it slow
