Search - "restaurant menu"
So my friend, who owns a restaurant, asked me over 6 months ago, if i could redesign his homepage. I told him "sure why not" and since we're friends i didn't want him to pay me any money.
He told me what his thoughts about the design were and i told him that i needed the menu, some decent pictures of the restaurant, the "about us" story and the credentials to the server.
He didn't know the credentials to his server and i told him to ask the person, who made that page to send me the information i needed, but he kept on saying "could you call her because blah blah". Well, i did but she couldn't give me that info without asking the owner. So i met him and told him "hey i told you so, because it's completely normal not give sensible information to unknown people and besides that she told me to tell you that you should give her a call, because she hasn't got your new phone number". Two months later i got an email with the credentials, but still no menu and no pictures.
Four days ago i made a transition page, because i didn't want to publish the page with stock images and without menu, so i wrote him again whether he wanted design #1 or #2. Got a text at ~21:00 saying "design 2, but you need to publish it at 22:00".
I mean wtf?! He assured me he would call some people he knows to get those things. I told him, that it would be free, because of our friendship, but no support from him and he keeps stressing?! He knows i've got a full-time job and my studies going on, so my time is really limited and he keeps fking around like that?! Man it pisses me really off...12

At least let me see the godamn Menu first.
Fuck you google3
Every Website seem to has some glitches... and you can't ignore them like non-web-devs do... i wish i could look up the menu on a local restaurant-website without going crazy about the buggy slider or the misaligned address-div
So the company I provide service to decided to remove the microwaves and fridges from the breakroom in favor of the restaurant of the company.
But since I'm a service provider external of the company, I have to pay fees to eat at the room of the restaurant, plus the price of the menu of course. And we were quite several externals (even some internals) that think the price are/were too expansive and used the microwaves.
Well, fuck you, I'm going to bring my own food.
Needed a rant.2
be sad that you can't find your favorite Greek Food online.
offer your local Greek Restaurant that you do their web stuff.
make a nice modern website.
show it to the greek guy.
"Oh please look at this website, I like it more"
shows you a site build with tables, and menu-shortcuts only linked to pdf files.
cry in a corner.1
I just hate the word "menu" today
Even worse: menues
The Internet is a fucking restaurant!
A linux programmer walks into a restaurant, orders some food from the menu, and asks for a fork. After a while all the programmers at that restaurant start asking for forks.
Went to a food stall, ordered the dishes(very simple and must have dishes in any food stall) in menu, and they replied it not yet available.. coming soon...
I immediately thought that IT world has affected the food industry too..
Now, they have coming soon and TODO in their Menu..
Imagine, waiters telling:
"Sir, the dish you ordered is currently in beta testing phase, and we are working to push it into prod soon. Meanwhile, enjoy the existing features(dishes) provided by our restaurant"
So I need some advice. Friend of mine did a logo for their relative's local restaurant and now their wanting a basic info page.
I figure on the frontend I'll go with bootstrap for now (zero patience for a cms build) and have them give me a general idea of what their wanting to spend. But as usual I'm lost when it comes to hosting.
Worse lately I've been so concerned with wrapping my head around the microservice setups, I haven't kept with how any of the current "simple" static hosting packages stack up to one another.
Just a quick glance I've found a couple freemium "serverless" models but the pricing on them seem like they're more for low traffic developer showcasing rather than a business with a quite a few patrons pulling up the togo menu every day (still waiting to find out what the expected will be, "local" is east coast several states away). Of course again I don't know that for sure, clueless remember.
I figure if all goes well we can talk about starting to add in some functionality later that requires a backend, making migration to a more extensive service and providing long term support a more worthwhile venture, but for now I'm just cutting them a deal that will hardly worth it's time just to get the ball rolling. Not just on this but as a freelance endeavor in general.
That said, while it will be a nice & easy starter project and possible portfolio piece later, it's not something I want to be married too long term if this is all they ever ask for.
In any case advice is much appreciated.24
