Hey! I thought tellecommuting jobs were scarce!

I'd like to tellecommute...

Since tellecommuting got almost half of votes, I gotta know what's the secret?

    If you meet someone in a bar and they say that they are a software developer and that they "telecommute" it's like a code to say that they don't have a real job and will take whatever web scripting contracts they can get ;)

    Thinks: Did I say that out loud? I hope I remembered to post as anonymonk...

      Actually I see a lot of useless criticism in the Monastery about Perl web programming and this is really bad.

      OK, we all know that being seen as a "web programming language" has done a lot of harm to Perl, but ruling out web programming is, IMHO, a very dumb thing.
        FWIW around 70% of what I do is web programming, and I have "telecommuted" at various points in my career ;)

    What I'd like to do, would be to get a telecommute job.

    Then I'd move someplace with low taxes, a bit of sun in the winter and warmer temperatures.

    I could find a nice place, live well -- and charge India prices. (Hmm, Indian food is good!)

    If you steal this idea, please hire me. :-)
