hi folks,

I was wondering how many of you work on a freelance basis and where (if you use online resources) you find work online. I ask with particular reference to freelancers.net and was wondering if anyone had ever got any work from the site?

What sort of rates are being charged on there? (are they more "european" prices for work or similar to e-lance) - I'm trying to establish whether I'm wasting my time pitching for work on the site really. I'm not looking to make millions but I don't particularly want to bust my balls for £5/hr either!

I joined e-lance the other week and some of the charges people are offering for projects are well below the market norm because it's such a competitive market and competing against Indian, Chinese or Russian based developers is particularly difficult as they are able to work for a lot less but I guess you take your chance with e-lance.
