that is a ridiculous statement to make, especially the running to sean part. i've made hundreds of helpful posts, just look, but your request is rooted in laziness. a contract is a legal document. treat it as such. look at your previous posts. many are rooted in "help help, i've gotta do so and so asap! and need...". it's the boy who cried wolf syndrome. my view is that you don't take your business too seriously given your on-the-fly need for other people's work/investment to keep you going, ie contracts, letters, etc. howabout planning for your business? besides, there are plenty of exceedingly helpful people that have posted their contracts on this site for others to use. instead of the histrionics, why not use the advanced search feature, searching "contract" or "sample contract" under the "elements of business forum". it's not rocket science, or even computer science, it's just proactiveness... besides, you have a computer science degree. can't you recover your lost files?
