So...I've only just started working at a new company but I've confirmed one important thing - I know how to apply what I know from one business to another very quickly and I don't want to have a boss for the rest of my life.

Following on from this I've had a bit of an idea for a company (partly consulting but some other stuff mixed in there) which is where some of you lot might come in.

Anyone got the slightest feeling that they wanna be a part of it?

What I think I need is someone who can program website stuff (preferably some other stuff as well but that's the main area I'm missing), C++ or whatever to make applications would be helpful.

The downside is that I'm not offering any money upfront but I would offer a percentage of the company so you would get any profits and you get a wage when money came in. The slight upside is that for the first couple of years it would just be done in spare time from home with no pressure on deadlines.

Very vague so far and I know it might be effort for nothing but it's worth a shot :)

:)

The level of interest is pretty much what I was expecting. Guess I'll teach myself how to code then.

I had interest until you mentioned programming. :)

What sort of coding are you after Micro?

I know PHP/HTML/CSS and am just finding my feet with Visual Basic. I know my way around Databases quite well too

I'm always interested in having my fingers in lots of pies so if you wanna send me an email to further discuss, feel free. :D

Part of my problem is I don't know enough about the different languages to know exactly what I want. Initially it would be standard website stuff (a company needs a website, right?) and it could go from there.

Timescales on this stuff is all pretty long (want to make sure I have the finances for it first and need to find if someone I know is interested in other parts of it).

Access database stuff is easy for me so it would just be support on any other bits of that or turning horrible code into nice code :)

I'll work on a very rough outline for it all and ping you something this week Hairy.

I'd be interested in hearing what your up to if you wanted to drop me an email. I'm mostly web and flash.

Excellent - it sounds/looks like you two will be able to cover what I'm thinking of to start with. I should have something rough written up by the end of the weekend (would have been quicker but I've had man flu this week :P)
