Hi all,

Just to let you know that I received payment today. Everything is finished and all turned out good.
Still no contract though!  :huh:

Thanks,
John.

W00t!  Congratulations and congratulations again!

Perhaps your customer has learned how to treat a developer, especially when the code hasn't been delivered yet.  :-)

Very pleased to hear your news, John!

I still think you were right to be wary.

For the future, it's still good to get a contract.  Even the most amicable arrangements between highly-trusted partners can go wrong at some point down the road. A well-written contract can help to settle things with less rancour should that arise.

Thanks everyone.

I'll certainly get a contract next time, even though everything has turned out for the best, it still has been a nightmare(which I dont want to repeat).

Thanks again for all your help, things may have been different had I not posted.  :)

John.

And when you do, make sure it's not a "pay on success" contract, those suck.
