It's 5 O'Clock somewhere

A few months ago a friend of mine paid a web designer $650 bucks for a simple website for her business. Ok, maybe that's a fair price; if you can't do it yourself you have to hire someone. But now the web designer wants $50 an hour to make small changes, like the dates of classes on the website. Stop, I say, I know just barely enough FrontPage to be dangerous, and we can edit this ourselves. We made lots of backups, and laughed our way through 4 hours of editing this thing. It's fun to teach someone who is basically new to computers how the whole internet thing works, I even showed her some of my searching techniques, helping her search on discount, her next project.
