I'm not sure if the programmers of the philippines are aware yet. But there are sites such as www.rentacoder.com where you can go and bid for work in an ebay style setting. I did this kind of work for awhile inbetween jobs when i still lived in the states, i rolled in about 1000-1500$/mo USD for a few months working 20-30 hours a week. I program in PHP/JScript/DHTML/HTML/SQL/a little c and a little vb.. There are also other projects avalible such as translation, writing advertisements, spell checking, server administration type projects, etc.. almost anyone should be able to make more money working online at rentacoder.com than they do working at a call center here in the RP. Like i said before, there are a few other sites like rentacoder.. But rentacoder is the only one I have actively used.
