Gerhard correctly guessed the method for getting the daily updates, without
putting a burden on the developer. :)

I should have clarified, however. We wanted to be a part of the development
process, basically the consultant would be a part of our team. I realize
this would put a lot of people off, maybe it is a bad idea -- I'm not sure
at this point.

If we were simply handing off the project to the consultant, then weekly or
even bi-weekly iteration meetings would have been sufficient.
