James, per our email discussion I copied the email in here for reference.
I'll get it set up on scriptlance later today so you can get started. I'm fine with the time you quoted and understand if it turns out to be a little more once you get started. As for the pictures, just want to make the upload of the photos as fool proof as possible in case someone forgets the camera settings. The small icon size of 109 x 109 and the 800 x 600 work perfect. Don't have to get that done this time around, just wanting to get it out there.
Also, I'll be back in Missouri Friday - Sunday this upcoming weekend. Would you have some time to test this barcode print on Friday or Saturday? If we can set a time in advance then I can be online and ready to test print and give you feedback. It prints and looks great, just won't scan that darn barcode that is generated based off the item number we enter.

Glad to hear it,
Backup of database - I'll correct this tomorrow for you
Archive Inventory - 2 hours
Inventory Manager - 1 hour
Photos - yes of course is this because of a space issue?
Scriptlance would be good, I had some family issues recently and we managed to aquire our first 1/10 feedback so would prefer to knock that down the list especially as scriptlance team won't let us even respond to the feedback!
