oh yeah. almost, "of course".

i always work from a detailed contract. the fuzziness begins when the contract starts deviating from reality. these are things like the hosting service having a capability or policy different than expected. for instance, they might not allow any script to do LOAD DATA (non-LOCAL) which we might be intending to use for restoring from a backup. this requires us to write our own. no big, but still a change from contract.

normally, you'd pencil in how things are changing. however, most of my clients are small business folk like me and don't want to be tracking legalities each and every day.

in these situations we remain in constant touch. nevertheless, because contract isn't up to date, there is an exposure.
