In the office again.
I WAS quiet; but have picked up again, in the last few weeks.

I THINK that I`m probably sorted AT LEAST until easter!

(and I`m NOT particularly cheap)

Hope things pick up for you soon.....

As regards your other post - site sparx looking to get rid of materials would be my guess. Only thing you can do is suggest the customer gets a couple more local quote (me, for example). I`d be quoting something similar to you, or more. Then ask the customer what they think they`ll get for such a low figure??

i've been mad busy last two months or so but all the other trades seem to be moaning about not having work so i'm sure it'l catch me up, have to say i'm not getting as many phone calls during the day.

as for people wanting everything for nothing....hows this, customer comes home(im rewiring his kitchen extension) for dinner, asks if i wanted anything from the shop, hmmm i says a sandwich would be nice if he didnt mind, he duly comes back with one and charges me

No it's Not. Admin is the only one that can change your Username. So if you would like to change it something else, let me know in a PM and I will gladly change it for you Mate. (Subject to it being available, of course. :p ).

With reagrd to your "Logged out", Make sure you tick the "Keep me Signed in box". Then you will never experience that again. ;)
