    Hello!
    I'm new here. I've been browsing tons of forums for an idea of what to do. I was laid off from my job about 3 month ago. I've been looking for a job since then, but did not even get a single interview. I worked as a web designer for a publishing company for the last 5 years. Looks like www.thescienceforum.com is an active forum with active members and may be someone has some experience working as a freelance web designer. May be "http://www.thescienceforum.com/Mathematics-forum-6f.php" category is not the most appropriate for this question, but I want to try anyways to get some opinions before I go ahead with my life. I'm wondering if it is possible in the current economy to find work for a freelance web designer and make enough to pay for rent and groceries. I was able to find a small project on craigslist and I developed a website for a company. It was a small project and took me only a week to complete. I got paid $800 for 1 week of work which is not bad. Please people give me some ideas. I have 2 kids and my wife is out of work as well. Thank you in advance.

    Mod note We all, I am sure, feel for you in your predicament. However, since is is strictly a mathematics sub-forum, I propose moving it to a more appropriate sub-forum, something with computers in the title I fancy.

    Look for your post there, and I wish you the best of fortune, truly.

    To the OP. When you say web developer. What do u know, language wise?

    i.e Can you programme proficiently in any of the following......

    1) php
    2) flash
    3) SQL
    4) Java

    ?
    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.
