comment Explaining technical things to non-technical people
I always have people asking me what a database is, I normally say "Its like a series of excel sheets, or more complicated", but thanks :)

comment What to look out for in employment contracts
My employer threatened to fire me if I developed any software outside of work and distributed it since it would be direct competition. I work for a web design company :S So this is a very important clause to watch out for.

What if the estimate is too high then and we start losing clients, wouldn't that also be bad?

comment Is it acceptable for projects to go over budget?
Thanks for your answer, it was quite helpful, however I think I wasn't clear about a few points in my original question. I'm a developer, not designer. We are a web design firm yes, but all our sites use a CMS, and have some degree of programming involved. I am paid salary, but we can still go over budget, I'm not exactly sure how it works. If we quote x amount of dollars we assume it will take y amount of hours. Somehow my boss assumes if I take y+1 hours that 1 hour could have been spent on another project so we lost money.
