One of the trickier things about being self-employed, especially around an open source project like Firefox, is knowing where to draw the line between giving out free advice and asking people to pay for my services. I’m always hopeful that answering a question here and there will one day lead to folks hiring me or purchasing CCK2 support. That’s why I try to be as helpful as I can.
That being said, I’m still surprised at the number of times a month I get an email from someone requesting that I completely customize Firefox to their requirements and deliver it to them for free. Or write an add-on for them. Or diagnose the problem they are having with Firefox.
While I appreciate their faith in me, somehow I think it’s gotten lost somewhere that this is what I do for a living.
So I just wanted to take a moment and let people know that you can hire me. If you need help with customizing and deploying Firefox, or building Firefox add-ons or building a site-specific browser, that’s what I do. And I’d be more than happy to help you do that.
But if all you have is a question, that’s great too. The best place to ask is on my support site at cck2.freshdesk.com.
