So true.. The overseas php/whatever outsourcing companies are incredibly slow and many are very sloppy in their work. oDesk is a good place to look if someone really needs a competent programmer who will get the job done right, without having to hire someone on as an employee or contractor.

Actually, the situation I am referring to isn't overseas--its a good ol' US hosting service that controls access to the development side.

Give me an in-house programmer or contractor you have a relationship with any day over any outsourced solution.
