Rex's Regular Expressions Consulting Service

By now, I'm sure the last flea on the back of every programmer's dog knows that if you want an answer to a coding question, you can ask on StackOverflow. And yet a great number of people who read this site prefer to write with their regex problems.

I spend many days building web pages with the aim of providing quality information for free. Sadly, where I live there are only 32 hours in a day, and on the topic of regex this site is the extent of the work I am able to do for free. So here's the deal.

Hire Rex... Pay what you like!

If for one reason or another you don't want to ask your question on StackOverflow, I have occasionally been providing a simple regex "consulting" service.

The payment system is frighteningly simple: you pay what you like… as long as it's reasonable. By reasonable, I mean that I am sensitive to the fact that we all have different situations. If you're out of a job, I realize you may not be able to afford a lot, and I'd still like to help you. If you are employed in a well-paying job, then you are probably able to pay me programmers' rates, which is really welcome because in between my many non-profit projects I do like to eat every once in a while.

I also realize that "reasonable" depends on how generous you feel. Hopefully, between the tight wads and the generous hearts, it all balances out and everyone is happy. Actual cheats get devoured by my baby Rexes.

If you'd like to get started, send me a message. If I'm available, I'll let you know, so if you don't hear from me, it means I'm out hunting marginocephalians and ornithopods. Please bear in mind that at the moment I'm on New Zealand time. I only take Paypal.

Ask Rex if he's Available

Let me know what you need… If I'm available, I'll respond. Please make sure you have read the above and understand that this is not a free service, and that I only take Paypal payments. Peace, -Rex
