Help: where to find new sub-contract/freelance customers?

Hello Drupal community, I'm looking for more freelance / contract work at the moment. And I was wondering where good places were to find it?

I run my own small agency in Santa Barbara CA and I can offer the following services: Drupal module coding, theming, front-end interactivity, custom design, project management, information architecture and more.

So far I know about Drupal Groups, meet ups, and craigslist. Any other good resources for finding new clients?

    Technical solution: Alternative homepage for mobile

    Hi folks,

    On a new site I am building we are using the same theme for mobile and desktop, but for the homepage I want to disable, server-side, some aspects of the homepage when a mobile client appears on our site. The desktop version of the homepage is a very fancy parallax and the mobile version will be function-over-form.

    I'm considering using:

    And using PHP to enable/disable various aspects of the homepage when it triggers.
