Re: Remote hands ANYWHERE?
Tuc, Good point, I would think we could take the approach that eBay does and have a sort of comments or feedback system so that we could at least have some idea of the level of work someone would do.. Someone does something for you, you pay them, and you post feedback about what they did. The other idea is public flogging at the nog... while extremely satisfying in nature, personally Id rather have something tangable that I can reference online before I ask someone to do something in my cage. Seriously though I see this risk in general with any remote hands you decide to use. There will always be unlabeled servers, and people who hit the wrong switch, pull the wrong cable or read the wrong port. While we hate to see it happen, the fact is we were not there to see it happen right ourselves. -Scotty ----- Original Message ----- From: "Tuc" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: "k. scott bethke" <email@example.com> Cc: "Kevin Day" <firstname.lastname@example.org>; <email@example.com>; "James Deibele" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Sunday, April 13, 2003 8:19 PM Subject: Re: Remote hands ANYWHERE? > > > > Combine that with a list of people in each area to contact willing to come > > in and do stuff no matter where they are or what they are doing and you may > > have 90% of your solution.
