Rob Griffiths IM'ed me saturday while I was sitting at ATL airport, asking what my day rates were.
My normal reply was "depends on the task", and asked him what he had in mind. As he described it, it fleshed out to all of 10 lines in my head, so I said "well, buy me lunch and we'll call it even". He couldn't believe that it could be that short to create or to write.
Ten minutes later, I showed him the code that he added to a hint for today about renaming old iChat logs.
Hadn't tried it on my own data, but told him "it should probably work". I'm pretty good at previewing code in my head.
So there I am, famous again. And got a free lunch for 10 minutes work. Not bad.
