lol.. you researched more than I did ;)

I remember this site being posted a while back with a similarly worded
question (albeit the same question).. it's a sad state of affairs if
they have to "advertise" for coders in this method.

i currently employ a very good programmer in Canada
i pay supposedly $10 per hour
but it works out at about $10 for 2 simple bug fixes
as i am out of practice with programming
and make many mistakes with syntax
also, despite the name phpexpert,
i am no expert as i am learning php
and mysql at the moment
i am looking for programmers for each
country in the world - as not only will
you program, but market the company as well
if you live in the UK you can FREEphone
0800 019 0924 to discuss any rate of pay

Let me see... $10 in UK money is ~6.26... I wouldn't get out of bed for
that! What are you going to do, when someone says they want 30+ an
hour? My guess.. is have a mini cardiacarrest.

What IP rights arrangements are there?

P: n/a
Ian,

it's only marketing, but $30 sounds better than 19.48
and it definitely sounds better than 40 or $61.60
i only want bug fixing help in the mornings
as my canadian employee can help me out at other times
if you can help me with bug fixing at whatever rate
you deem reasonable them email me at
da****@phpexpert.org
or phone 0800 019 0924
if you help me get the project online by this friday
then i will pay you at least 40 per hour

i know the bounds of programmers
most programmers can't market or be a salesman
i am looking for those programmers who have
a bit of wit about them and can represent
a company in good humour to customers worldwide
most of the marketing will be done by email
so there is no face-to-face pressure for programmers
believe me, when i say, it is easier to market a product
than to develop it in the first place, programmers don't
market because they can't or because they have never
learnt how to market, and some programmers just
haven't got the knack
i detect from your writings that you won't be a
hopeless marketer, not that i am a perfect judge
or perfect marketer, but i do know i have 13
customers waiting for this first project and i
also know the competition is tough

Damian

$30 per hour is fair enough,

You live (or appear to from your headers) to like in the UK.. so why are
all your prices so far in $? (just curious).

Even so, when I talk to other UK people regarding contracts, I discuss
monetary values in Pound Sterling, but my honest opinion, is if I
contact you and say I want 40 (yes, that's 40 UK Sterling Pounds) you
are going to laugh.

Still.. if you feel that you can afford to pay that sort of hourly rate
(remembering of course, I'm not going to be accepting 100% on completion
/ handover of the work due to the nature of this type of agreement),
feel free to contact me and outline your proposals.

A heads-up; I don't work on a commission basis, it's either 100% on
handover, or it's not at all, as I think you'll find with most
programmers.

Your primary objective IMO though, is to learn to differentiate between
a programmer and a marketer.. there is a big difference, and although
I'm sure many marketers would love to be programmers, I'm sure the same
figures do not apply for the reverse.

Ian

P: n/a
matty,

i detected you were from the UK
it's getting late in the morning
can you help me to bug fix in the mornings ?
i don't know what code you have looked at
at www.phpexpert.org, but the type of coding
will be of php and mysql, i can code from
machine code/assembler up to high level languages,
but i am out of practice and get many syntax errors
and so i need help in bug fixing
i feel, with help, i can get this project done by
friday and run it by the weekend
i don't know whether you say you don't see how you
could help because you aren't capable or because you beleive
the level of coding is below you, but i tell you,
this project needs a bit of clever coding with multiple tables
in a database and decisions on sending email messages
it should be very challenging and interesting
if you can help, then please email me at
da****@phpexpert.org
or freephone 0800 019 0924

Damian

If you lurked around here a bit more you probably wouldn't be so quick to
judge Ian harshly. In any case, it's clear to me you should take your own

Tom,

i do have another line of work - selling bleach & cleaning

i did have respect for Ian at first but just because he has
been here longer than me, it doesn't make him any better
i am a computer programmer by trade, just like you
i viewed your photography website and quite liked it
i can see why you don't like my site, but i haven't
spent much time on it - there is a lot of room for
improvement - agreed
my net-etiquette isn't brilliant but i am learning
you may be able to help me in my coding as
i am out of practice - i won't go away i am
enjoying myself too much - we'll all just have
to learn to get along like one big happy family

I enjoy reading people's problems/solutions, helping where I can, and
participating in general. I don't enjoy people who think the usenet is some
private get rich quick scheme. If you showed any sign of actually learning,
I would say great. Repeating yourself isn't learning.

One of the features of the net is you are free to do just about anything you
like. I only have control over what I choose to read. (plonk)

Tom,

i will need help in the next few days
the one problem i see is sending an email
say 2 days after the previous one
i will need some code to take today's date
and check whether enough days have lapsed
to send the next email

the code will be new to me and i am used to coding without bugs
but learning PHP is difficult and confusing at times
any help you may offer at the time will be
greatly appreciated

Regards,
Damian

i promise i will do the site up sooner rather than later !

i can see why you don't like my site, but i haven't
spent much time on it - there is a lot of room for

Well, just add or subtract the interval, convert the two
dates to timestamps, and compare them.

It doesn't take a PHPExpert to do that...

Or a programmer with years of HLL and low-level lang experience.

Is this all a wind-up?

Agreed.

PHP Scripts can also be happily thrown into cron.whatever and be run to
do the regular checking too.

Why?.

I know you are an experienced programmer, but advertising and obviously
selling a non existant project in a language that you don't know and on
a very short deadline to boot doesn't strike me as a very good idea.

Add that to the fact that neither your first posting nor your "website"
says anything about what you want/need, you shouldn't be surprised by
the lack of positive responses.

Jochen,

i don't want to give too much away about the project
the competition is tough enough anyway
there is a bit of detail about the project at

To be fair, my answer *did* tell you how to do it.

If it wasn't enough information to allow you to implement
what you needed yourself, then I definitely wouldn't be
interested in bug-fixing your code, as if this is an indicator
your PHP coding experience/ability, I'd probably have to
rewrite most of what you'd written already.

If this is for real, I might be interested in developing it
for you, although obviously the price would reflect the fact
that you're selling the code on.

news servers throughout the world with that little chat thats not
helpful to the php community.

Thanks for the constructive comments Wes.

I felt value in responding via usenet since this thread has been running
hot in various PHP newsgroups lately, as you may have seen.

How's that for clutter?

all this arguing is getting us nowhere
everyone is having a go
i would just like to highlight that i will be taking
programmers on seriously from the 12th Dec 2003
the rate of pay will be $30 per hour
or, if you like, 20 per hour
this is the rate a programmer in Blackburn, my hometown
is charging and i think this is fair

if you would like to chat about the project
please log on to my chatroom at
www.phpexpert.org/chat/

i have had some wonderful conversations
with programmers from Sweden, America
and New Zealand
