@Dr Herbie: You should probably do a once-over on all of your content. I found several spelling errors/typos.
- Latest Post: Code doe not have to be Perfect (Dan Quayle, is that you?)
- We believe in social and personal responsability in business.
- As developers we can tend to the obsessive compulsion of including everything no matter how distantly related, we may therefore, at our discression, ("Yikes!" on that one.)
- and the customer can agree [to] a maximum number of hours for a project.
Some other issues:
1. "We charge on an hourly basis (per hour or part thereof)" is redundant. Change to "We charge on an hourly basis (or part thereof)" OR "Our fees are based on an hourly rate, and we charge based on X minute increments..." where X is one of: 30, 15, 10, or whatever.
2. Change "© Herbie Smith 2013" to "© 2013 Herbie Smith"
3. Change "...with .NET we offer consultant/mentoring services on-line." to "..with .NET we offer online consulting/mentoring services."
4. Make your section titles more consistent. Some use title case, and some use sentence case. Some end with periods, and some do not.
5. On second thought, instead of just correcting the typo in this sentence:
"As developers we can tend to the obsessive compulsion of including everything no matter how distantly related, we may therefore, at our discression, reduce the reported hours if we feel that 'too much' was done; we would rather over-deliver than over-charge."
you should probably just remove this entirely. It's ALWAYS your prerogative to bill for fewer hours than you actual work. It's something consultants just do. You don't need to make it a policy. And you certainly don't want your customers to think obsessive compulsiveness is one of your everyday traits.
