Me: Just a heads up, if you log onto our website, you can see that the site is down. My publisher has been unreliable and I am working as quickly as I can to get the site back up. I’m so sorry for this; I’ll let you know when the article is posted as soon as possible.
Client: Okay. What’s the website again? Sorry.
I give him the URL.
Client: Hey, it says the page is broken!
Me: I just told you it’s down.
Client: I thought you meant it’s DOWN like FRESH! I won’t have this!
Client: The site isn’t working right.
Me: That’s strange.
I download a page and take a look at the code.
Me: It looks like a bunch of the code is missing. Did you have anyone modify the site?
Client: No, nothing like that.
Me: Well there are entire chunks of code missing that was there yesterday.
Client: Oh yeah, that was me, some of the code seemed unnecessary. Back to the issue at hand, why isn’t the site working?
Our company works with thousands of vendors worldwide on time-tracking - the following request came in from one that has been using the system for about eight months.
The clock in and clock out shows in military time. The difference between the in/out is calculated in time based on 60 minutes per hour. We invoice our time using hours and minutes in military time, which, as I’m sure you know, is based on 100 minutes per hour. Can the website be changed so the clock in and clock out will be based on 100 minutes in an hour? There are many other companies that invoice using the same method that we do.
