    So, recently, a friend of mine told me that someone needed help with a Facebook game. So, I told him to give the guy my email. Sure enough, he contacted me, but for something completely different:

    I'm not BIG big into web design stuff. So, would anyone from TH.net be interested? I'm pretty sure from what I recall my friend saying is that ASP and/or Javascript would be involved.

    EDIT: I responded saying that I'm interested and asked if he would be interested in taking on several people. Also asked about this engine: http://www.socialengine.net/features What do you guys think of it? It could be a useful PHP engine if we can get it for free from him. It's $200 or so but he has a few hundred dollars sooooo :)

    I think he'd had more chances of finding people if he was working with PHP. I could do something of this kind, in PHP.

    As the email reads: "I can't offer a lot of details until a non disclosure is signed"

    It's not a game, its a "a type of social/professional networking site".

    So, get this: apparently the hundreds of thousands of dollars was TO THE PERSON WHO PROGRAMS IT! This is cause the guy is a rich asshole that happens to be able to dump a million or two into this project.

    Why do I call him an asshole? After I responded saying I was interested, he responded saying that he found someone else to take the job offer. FUUUUUU-

    As much as I dislike web development programming, I would suck it up for a nice, cool few hundred thousand dollars AND a stake in the company. :(

    Grr....

    Spending two hundred dollars makes you a serious developer...? Right, whatever.

    And yes that is an asshole thing to do, and likely it will get no where so this is a huge waste of money on his part. HOWEVER I do need a lot of money and clearly he did not give me the job, therefore I concur: he is an asshole. Is there a name of this website so that we can defame it?

    Yeah it's getting tough. Foreign people who don't seem to have spoken much English appear to have cornered the convenience store jobs and those teenagers pretty much got a stranglehold on fast food.

    No I live in Oregon. They speak a lot more languages than Spanish here. The dude today was an Indian guy, pointed at every pack of cigarettes EXCEPT Marlboro 100's despite me saying "No, the red ones," over and over. They're only damn red ones and they take up half the rack! He seemed nice though.

    Well in all honesty you guys are thinking about my 2 posts way too much lol. The original post I was misinformed. If you got the job, you WOULD BE GIVEN initial cash for development tools and be eventually paid "a few hundred thousand dollars". Crazy huh?

    If it makes any of you feel better; the company is going to fail.
