  • I use Rent-a-Coder for some odd jobs, but always get underbid by offshore companies. Apparently, some people can justify eight hours designing and writing a full featured Access application for only $10 US.
  • I have a lot of experience in various facets of computer software and programming, but no "officialy documented" experience. Most comapnies only want to see what you've done in previous jobs, and not independent work. Therefore, I'm typecast as a VB/Access programmer
