I'm sitting in the outsourcing center for several of the major publishers as I type. Have the same guys working on a project for me. They are smart, but good ones aren't cheap. Managing them really should start with being physically present for a good amount of time if you are doing anything remotely difficult. Long-term relationships aren't fun either since you become dependent and they know it. Being here isn't fun. I'm in a nice hotel, but if the wind shifts I get the faint smell of open sewer drifting into my room. Also, plan on being sick the whole time.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.
