Good morning folks. Sorry to leave you with such a short post today, but I'm sure you'd rather read about all this awesome news instead of my take on Indiana's weather.

    So a friend recommended my services to a company as a web designer (i'm by no means a pro developer, infact i'm more of a photoshop pro that knows html/css) for a pretty big, well paid job. They got in contact with me earlier this week and the project basically involves redesigning a page they had already paid a lot of money for and weren't happy with, confused design etc, bit clunky bla bla. So they arranged a meeting with me for thursday (tomorrow) to come in and chat things over, and gave me the details of the page so i could check it out in advance.

    After checking the page i realise the job is a bit out of my depth, its not that its a crazy difficult project but it involves things i've never really dabbled in (and i dont think i'd be paid enough or given enough time to learn on the job) and on top of that the want me to redesign the existing page, i.e not start from scratch but pick through this idiots old code and sort it that way, which i've never done before and sounds like a total nightmare to me.

    So what should i do? I'm arranged to have this big meeting tomorrow with this women who contacted me and all her superiors and i feel like i'm going to have to say no and basically waste my own and everyone elses time. Would you just phone in ahead and explain the situation to avoid the embarrassment of wasting everyone's time?
