I'm buried under a mountain of bids from developers and web site designers who responded to the job advert I placed. I've decided not to start reading them until Tuesday, so I deal with the whole batch at once. Want to make the decision by Friday.
Anyhoo, the next time you need to have done by a freelancer, check out www.getacoder.com, www.getafreelancer.com and www.freelanceswitch.com. Obviously, some of the bidders give you an elevator pitch and don't really tell you what you need to know to make a well-informed decision, but a quick glance through some of the portfolios yielded some really impressive work.
