I just learned that I have Hypothyroid, so does a friend of mine in Guatemala, I have "G" mail so after I e mail friend of mine in Guatemala about how I am doing, I get ads about 'thyroid' cures plus travel agency ads about Guatemala travel!!!!!!! coming on big G.
I live and work in the 'developing' world, had a website here in El Salvador in 2000, my local Webmaster, who spoke 3 languages other than Spanish built the entire website from Source Code, at Cybercafes, since his home computer was dial up and therefore too expensive, I got a hosting company in USA and my Webmaster FTP ed everything to hosting company from a Cybercafe in the city of San Salvador, in Central America alone are hundreds of qualified computer techs working for $2.75 USD an hour or less at 'Call Centers', Customer Service Centers outsourced from USA, those young people with connections and money, USA Visas, go work in the 'first world', so if you are on the road and require tech support, look around locally or internationally, don't hold your breath waiting for an "American" find someone and negociate a fair salary, if they ask for US, UK or EU compensation part company with them, on the local level if possible send a native friend first to do talking and set prices or salaries, a native is far better than an ex pat who CLAIMS to be 'fluent' in local language......You will find 99 people at first who will want to overcharge, you then will find 1 genius, hold on to him or her.
