Plumbers normally focus on either patch or new development. If you need a local plumber for new development, get quotes from those who focus in this area. If you are trying to find patch work, hire a plumbing technician who focuses on replacement. It is consistently a good idea to get numerous bids on your venture, but in an emergency situation this may not be feasible. Ask just what the expenses will certainly be up front, including any after hours or unexpected emergency service costs. If the plumber works on an hourly basis, learn up front exactly how the time is calculated and keep track of the amount of time spent.

Guarantee they will definitely take responsibility for any type of damages done while working or get information of any exceptions. The contract should consist of a detailed accounting of the work to be done and a bottom line rate. If the plumber is bidding on the project, there should be one price for the whole entire job.

wwp: I'd propose to (optionally) embed/dock the edit dialog contents into the AB window, thus keeping a classical look. See faked screenshots: editing user info [1], editing group members [2].

It may be important that the embedding of the edit dialog contents into the AB window is made optional (even if done by default), as this new layout might eat more space for some people. More over, users with small screens may like to keep the old scheme, i.e. use the edit dialog instead.

Also, when opening the AB, the edit part should not show, until the user explicitely wants to Edit a contact/group (dble-click on a contact/group, or using the menu entry 'Edit'). Doing this, we won't interfer w/ the way the AB is used when Composing (to add recipients), as there it's more important to see contacts than editing their data. The vertical slider between the contact list and the edit part would allow to see more contacts, but the edit part would be made close-able.

  • make it a separate application ? ( I'd rather not (think startup time and fast communication between the two apps), but a --addressbook flag would be nice - Colin)
    • I'll take those ideas to make a separate address book application that would generate vcards so that it could work (theorically with all apps) -- Hoa.
  • make it a plugin! The tree structure of the AB makes it an ideal candidate to appear as another folder hierarchy. Further ideas include drag'n'drop of addresses/mails (droping a mail would add all the addresses contained in it).
  • open the AB hooks API in Sylpheed-Claws so that plugins can be written to use other address books (or other AB program to be used directly). IMO nothing easy here, and I'm not even dealing w/ the completion mechanism.
