comment Which HTTP status codes are really OK?
Sounds like a very vague concept to me. How should you know when the site fails, more than the developers do? It's almost like you would need to say set up testing for all the different scenarios of the app, which sounds an awful lot like the automated testing the developers of the site should be doing.

comment To refund or not to refund this client?
That's the thing though, 'a problem with the slideshow' is a bug that gets fixed and is not a showstopper, no project is ever 100% perfect the first time. That just sounds like an excuse on his part. I don't think you've done anything wrong here to be honest.

comment How do you deal with the costs of too-rapid change?
I like the idea of the customer setting the priority, the hard part is laying down the law and saying 'I've started on task X, no you can not change the priority now'
