I have just requested some quotes for some programming work that I need done. I love the global environment. I have worked out what I need by doing a few hours programming. And now that I know enough I have written a spec and I am now waiting on getting quotes in on the work.

I normally am surprised by the value for money when getting work done. Things that would normally take me 2-3 days work might cost me $50-100. That is what I call good value. I could not do the work for that. And certainly in Australia there would not be any chance that anyone could do it.

I got another phone call from a client today – one that I have not heard from for about 12 months… They are doing some work on a project next week and need something changed. I suspect that it might be a movie or something – I will try to find out tomorrow what the project is.
