You must be a developer? I have a tester who worked for me from his sailboat in Marina Del Rey. As a test manager that was the same as someone working overseas, in the sense there was a VPN and a need to have a local data store for him to execute scripts against.

I know I can play up time zone difference - nothing beats having a Caribbean time zone when you are testing builds for a company on the west coast :-) I routinely aimed for remote testers that had a good half day on a build before my team showed up for work. They vetted the build and found the obvious defects before my senior testers deep tested.

I wonder how it would be to pair a tester with a developer that way, say if both used their respective skill sets to bid on contract jobs and paired up for the contract?
