Funny, I thought that 'Branding' was strictly for
Cattle in corny Western movies :)

Seriously; I have been approached by various 'types'
to do the same sort of thing (admittedly on a smaller
scale) - the latest being a Professor of Medicine at
Plovdiv (Bulgaria) Medical Faculty who wants me to
provide him with a do-it-yourself Multiple Choice
Questionnaire builder (which, as such, is a day's
work) for $10 - with a load of guff glorifying his

I have told him that I will "knock out" MCQ tester
standalones for each of his student quizzes at $5 a
pop for the very simple reason that I would rather
have $5 a month than $10 once. Also, I had a sneaky
feeling the chap was going to start rolling out quiz
programs for other clients of mine at a cheaper price.

I wouldn't touch the bloke in the shades, fedora hat
and a loudspeaker playing music from the Godfather
with a barge-pole as all he is doing is offering you a
quick buck so he can, later, put you out of business
and rake in the shekels himself.

No need for this to go privately; I have nothing to
hide re my opinion here.

The small developer should never, never, get bulldozed
by the heavy guys.

sincerely, Richmond Mathewson
