    Expert PHP dev & PHP forum mod for short term contract


    I've quit my job and my next position doesn't start for another month. I thought I'd enjoy my time off, but it's honestly getting a little boring. My xbox broke, for one ;-)

    As for my credentials, as you can see I have a bajillion posts here, and nearly as much rep, and I'm a mod of PHP, regex, and other forums. I'm a PHP expert and am available for a rapid development cycle short term project. Nothing is too complex, but it won't be cheap. If you have something interesting, let me know via PM. Otherwise, I'll be playing Portal.

    My avatar here is not portal, though the art style is the same. The average gamer is 28 years old, so I still have a year to go.

    Parents are too old to realize. Though, to be fair, they thought the same thing about THEIR parents and rock and roll.

    I'm amused that I'm basically bumping my own resume up to the top of the list over and over by having this conversation, though I could just sticky it.

    My mom played video games when she was pregnant with me. Super Mario World, mostly. Could explain a lot, like why I came out punching bricks and riding dinosaurs.

    Tell them about how in high school you programmed a graphing calculator to write "LOL****S" when someone tried to use it to add/subtract.

    I didn't do that, but I did pretty much cheat on every math test ever with my graphing calculator. I even wrote a program that simulated wiping the calculator's memory once the teachers got wise.

    Once I was caught cheating in science class and had to sit next to the teacher whenever we took a test. I suppose it didn't help that I could read what people were writing by the movements of their pen[cil](s). (it isn't that I suck at science, but the teacher never taught and always expected us to study on our own. It's impossible to do when the first portal just came out)

    3282 reps if you program a hello world program without echo/print/any other output functions.
