This subforum looked so depressing, so I thought I should add a more happy story. I contacted Thompson22 due to a post he had in here, where he needed a piece of code for his application. We talked on skype for a bit, and I gave him an offer for how much time and money I needed for this particular job. A couple of days later, everything was set up, he got the project, and I got the money through Paypal.
Also, this was a very nice man, and I will continue doing business with him. He has my full recommendation for other freelancers.
