Robot Pets Looking For Work

Programmers are difficult to hire, so much so that for a sufficiently skilled programmer/entrepreneur, it is actually more cost-effective to write a programmer than it is to hire one. I have written a few programmers in Ruby, JavaScript, and Lisp. They are not very imaginative, and each one only has a very small, specific set of skills, but thanks to the magic of forking processes and VPS hosts, each one can work on an effectively infinite number of projects simultaneously.

My robot programmers are essentially janitors.

If you have legacy code in either JavaScript or Ruby, you should contact me. My robots can already do a variety of small, useful tasks, and when they achieve a broader, more powerful range of skills, they're going to become significantly more expensive.
