Is it my fault that I didn't evaluate properly? Snark. Is it the coder's fault that they advertise blah blah that they can do the job and deliver the deliverables then crap out? I did evaluate and evaluate and evaluate numerous coders and they were generally all the same. What? I'm a stupid moran because I can't cystal ball gaze? And no. You don't deserve $100 an hour. That's your problem. Your opinion of yourself. mac jordan <mac.jordan at gmail.com> wrote: On 8/17/06, Kenneth wrote: > > I happened to come across some old threads (2003) on this list about > RentACoder.

Tsk. > Tsk. Tsk. nice rant. Now then - is it our fault that you picked a shop that couldn't do what you want? How did you select them, evaluate them? we're entitled to (and get) our approx $100 per hour because we have years of business experience, because we can tell clients when their ideas won't work - and suggest new ideas that will, because we turn out good quality code on time and on budget. and we're no different to hundreds - probably thousands - of development companies; if you engaged the wrong one(s), then your selection process is flawed. -- mac jordan home: www.kestrel.org work: www.webhorus.net them: www.jordan-cats.org -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt ! --------------------------------- Do you Yahoo!?
