A great summary of how some clients think.

This seems a little too appropriate since I’m currently ending a really terrible client relationship with an architect, but I thought other designers might enjoy. I’m sorry if this seems spammy, I really needed to share with people who understand.

Dear Mr. Architect:

Please design and build me a house. I am not quite sure of what I need, so you should use your discretion. My house should have somewhere between two and forty-five bedrooms. Just make sure the plans are such that the bedrooms can be easily added or deleted. When you bring the blueprints to me, I will make the final decision of what I want. Also, bring me the cost breakdown for each configuration so that I can arbitrarily pick one.

I have been using subversion for all my projects for over a year now. It’s much better then CVS which has become rather dated. The clients are better too.

Automating deployment with Subversion is a good article over on arstechnica on using subversion to make deployment easy.
