  um, didn't you just spend $68.50 in time for all these emails?

Oh CRAP I failed.. but hey, it was only $68.00 I got paid for this.

The part that really galled me was the incredible architecture I laid out
for his user registration process making it fully automated; he chucked that
last week because he wanted it "simple": people submit an email and he
enters them himself.

I was tempted to respond with "So why do you need a CMA? Use the service
provider's bloody administrative site and put them into mySQL yourself!"
but I needed that $68.00

  Phil,

I'm sorry, but based on this new information, this no longer qualifies
as a "Project From Hell."

:)



    There was indeed a contract through rentacoder.com - but the hilarious
      part
    of all of this is this:

1) He ALREADY paid me!
2) He already gave me a 10/10 excellent rating after closing the project
(and on rentacoder.com your rating upon a closed project CANNOT be
      changed!)
    3) [no official comment on any backup copies of code]

        Considering he removed me from the project, deleted all the files
          and
  everything else, I couldn't give a rat's arse what he does at this
          point,
      but that's good to know for the future.

I just wanted to know if I were the only one on earth that gets
          clients
    from
      Hell.

          Wow... That's cold... I do believe you have a small courts case in
        your
  hand, if the money he was paying is worth the trouble. Was there a
        contract?
      Best regards,
Mauricio

"Peace of mind isn't at all superficial, really," I expound. "It's the
        whole
      thing. That which produces it is good maintenance; that which
        disturbs it
    is
      poor maintenance. What we call workability of the machine is just an
objectification of this peace of mind. The ultimate test is always
        your
  own
      serenity." - Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.
