    I have noticed an increase in squabbling and bickering in the Professional forums of late. I am not amused. I do not care who starts the squabbling. I will finish it by banning all participants. The more persistant the squabbling the longer the ban. Feel free to disagree and correct but...

  4. Remote contracts - how to get one?

    Did anyone work on a remote contract? How to get one? I suspect it will require a huge sacrifice on rate but once you do it from Thailand that starts to make sence, does not it? Yes, there are things like odesk but with average rate of $14/hr it's a complete trash. Are there any more mature...

    Comms are being sent out about 10% rate cut across the board for any contract renewal after April. Given other org wide changes as well, looks like tough times ahead for contractors with Lloyds.

  16. Agent asks for current rate

    Sometimes an agent will ask what rate you are currently on. I don't blame them for wanting to know, but I tend not to tell them if possible. Apart from it being confidential and non of client B's business what you charged client A, I think it can be misleading. Eg. I charge more for architecture...

  18. How a reasonable/fair contract with seed investor would look like?

    This question is probably not the best fit for a contactor as opposed to startup forum but maybe someone will answer it. How a reasonable contract with a seed investor prepared to give money for an equity would look like? Are there any good examples publicly available online? Any standard gotchas?...
