It would've been fine even if it was, Bruce. This is the "General" list. As long as it's PHP-related, you're fine. However, I'd concur with Stut's note, and add that it's probably not even practical to do a group retainer --- this is, without undue bias, one of the best, most diverse, most professional core group of folks in any developer-focused community on the web today. It's all a matter of asking the right questions and taking advantage of the situation - so long as you're willing to *give back* as well. > -----Original Message----- > From: Chris [mailto:dmag...@gmail.com] > Sent: Monday, April 06, 2009 8:14 PM > To: bruce > Cc: email@example.com > Subject: Re: [PHP] Out of the blue question.. > > > bruce wrote: >> Hi Ladies/Gents of the list... >> >> I've got an issue/question and figured I'd fire it to the list. >> >> Over time, I've had a few projects that I've worked on, where I've > required >> someone with skills way beyond mine for a given area.
