#190206 - Far too many queries fail to define "working"
Responding to: Andy Neil's previous message
I have to admit, I didn't really understand the original query.

"Working" is something I often have had to pin down before contracting for a piece of work. I've found that most potential clients don't really know what that means, not even to them. I generally insist on testable conditions, and many potential clients have been entirely unable to specify what they consider acceptable. Most often, that means I don't do business with them.

After all, one has to know when he's done the job, and be able to prove it.
