My trusty new programmer friend from Malaysia sent me a PHP file today.
Pretty quick turn around!
Originally I’d ask that this file was written in such a way that it could be placed in a WordPress Page Template.
Not what I got.
However, my local programmer friend took a look and decided it will work, for the most part.
That’s all I needed to hear.
However I decided to ask if he could do what I originally asked. His response was, “let’s Skype”. It’s pretty much the de facto way to do drill-down communication remotely.
I imagine while I am on my lunch break, he is sitting in bed in his jammies wearing a long night cap with a pom pom at the end with a laptop on his Mission Improssible 2 themed bed spread – only I picture all of this upside down.
Anyway, after a few minutes of typing he says, “let me share my screen with you.”
So before you know it I am watching code magically appearing on the shared screen. Very impressive.
I told him, that’ll do pig and he sent me another PHP file.
My local programmer is dropping the new files in, tweaking it out just a little and then I can pay this fine foreign hacker via Paypal. And I paid about 20% of what I would have to pay someone locally.
Makes me think I can really start using this type of service for about any crazy web programming idea I get.
And I get a lot of those.
