Maybe he meant developers sitting on fishing boats. It’s understandable.
Hauling in a 1500 lb marlin can be a bit of a distraction…

If people can post citys-specific requests, they can
certainly post nation-specific requests…

Given that this is an international mailing list, shouldn’t that be in
kg?

Kilos are too disreputable, especially if you are sitting around
offshore with a laptop, satellite modem, and no apparent reason to be
there.

I’m going to stop there, before those software pirates make me walk off
the end of any arrays :wink:

I guess what got me giggling was he didn’t even say what city, let alone
nation.

Perhaps, in best English Tradition, it’s high time we went go over and
“Discovered” them! :-))

Arrh me Hearties, prepare to be boarded.

Actually, I’ve been looking at http://shipexpo.com/sales/ and dreaming
about a mobile software development team.

It’s not what I know that counts.
It’s what I can remember in time to use.

If you ‘blokes’ would just click a bit you would see that punchbowl.com
is located at the hub of the universe.

"Maybe he meant developers sitting on fishing boats. "

I heard about them…

Ruby pirates! Its rumoured they can catch jumping fish
with their long fingernails. And some even K.O. sharks with
their laptops single handedly!

“dreaming about a mobile software development team.”

Thinking about it, with “love boats”, rave-music bots
and other much more expensive stuff on-boats, who
wants to host a ruby-on-ships conference?
Off-topic yeah … but after ruby-on-rails I figured it
could be on-plane or on-ships too! :wink:

I think what he means is he wants a single person to apply, not one of
those “offshore development teams” that advertise themselves as the
solution
to all your development problems (ie: a pool of cheap labour).

Otherwise, why would he list “Experience managing developers in a
geographically distributed team” as a requirement.
