Well, this is ludicrous to say the least.
I stumbled upon this website which sort of connects businesses with freelance programmer/developers. The basic idea goes like this: The company which needs a project done typically posts up their requirements. The freelancers would then review the project requirement and then send in a proposal/price quote. Payments are done mostly online too.
And then I come across this project.
Apparently, this fellow has escaped from the asylum, because he wants a clone of Yahoo!
What irritated me the most was that there were actually people bidding for it. And one genius bidded a paltry $1,300 and a development time of 25 days. Hello?
