    About 4 online projects still sit in my inbox; still at the earliest "can't be bothered" stage.

    The problem (for me) is outdoing all the 'freelancers' on the particular site I"m using to get jobs. These 'freelancers' are just companies, not individual people. I can't compete with companies with time, resources, and more experienced and faster people then I, working for less than I bid on a project. It sucks.

    You have to throw in some really low bids when you start to build up your reputation, then work from there. That's the only way I got some projects.

    I've tried low bids, but it seems as though you have to have rep to get jobs to get rep to get jobs, etc. For instance, someone had a project to correct some PHP code, and I bidded (is that a word?) $*0, and another person (according to profile was a company) bid $50. I have zero rep, that guy has 5 stars with *0 reviews, and he was chosen.

    You need to bid even lower then. Sometimes it has to be lower than half the average bid.

    i've tried this on a bunch of different ones around here (miami) and it works. get me the main sales, cash, error menu...no way to get free cokes on them though, that option seems to be locked out

    however, with the sales menu, you pick which sot to view data for, and it will give you how many were sold of that slot since last reset...same for cash, will tell you cash on hand.

    i try new ones all the time, although i have heard that most of the ones in backwater places and shops are normally ********, so you can get the prices menu and such there

    On newer machines, most of the other options (the useful ones) only work when the vending machine door is open, and if that's the case, why bother with the primitive OS of the machine when you can just grab a can?

    Yeah, it's kind of pointless when you need to open the machine before doing anything cool. Might as well take a crowbar to it and drink all the coke you want.

    It's a lot easier to find coke delivery trucks and grab a crate. They had crates of drinks that anyone could take if they wanted back in the day at my school, but nobody did since a CCTV camera was pointed right at that spot.
