I am available to work from 6PM-9PM on weekends, and from 12PM-11PM on weekends PST Pacific Standard Time (GMT-8)
At age 14 I started my own hosting company, didnt go so well because of financial issues. Sold it for approx. $2,500 locally. Since the hosting has changed names and I have lost track of it.
At age 15 I started a webdevelopment company, currently co-ceo of the company with a friend. Employing 16 people, ages varying from 17-30. Since the webdesign company has developed into a hosting division (in development), a dedicated reseller (in development), a gaming division, a programming division, and a free/paid hosting division (www.third-reality.net).
Due to financial problems (bills on top of bills), Im seeking some extra work. I no longer do webdesign but others in the company still pursue the dream that I had for the company.
Reminds me of when I was young. When I was 16, that was about 1992. And here I am in 2005 doing basically the same stuff. I only still know one of my original subscribers--he's a doctor now--Radiology. Funny, my prices were about the same as yours--I charged people $ to access the door games on my BBS. Since I only had two phone lines, basic access was free but there was a time limit--if you really wanted to get into some of the games like TW2002 you had to play for hours. I designed some really cool interfaces too--back then we called them "menus"--where was no HTML, just ANSI. You didn't use a mouse either, so there was no need for hypertext. Really the internet is pretty much the same as it was in 1992, only our BBS's had a more character--things werent' so standardized, the sysop was responsible for the look and feel of the interface. Pretty much we had to customize anything that looked default--maybe like skinning only without pixels Back then there weren't too many 16 y/o guys writing software--but that said I really respect these young guys because I know I did some of my best work in highschool--before Windows took over and bloated everything. I digress.
